  5. My favourite birthday memory is from when I was four years old. I got to wear this brand new cute pink dress for the first time, and I just remember feeling like a princess all day! It was the first dress that I owned that I really loved. After that day, I wore the dress all the time - it was my favourite thing to wear! Wow, I'm such a girl! :)

  46. We didn't have a lot of $ growing up and I'd never had a store bought cake. But when I turned 13 my dad got me an ice cream cake with a horse painted on it (I have always ridden horses). That's probably my favorite birthday memory :-)

  67. My favorite birthday memory....I have SO many to choose from. I loved my 5th birthday party. Unbeknownst to my mom, I had verbally invited my entire Kindergarten class to a party, which really had not been planned. But Mom, being the good sport that she was, went along with it when she found out from another mother that we were having a "big bash". Hehe. I also had a pinata -- something completely new and exciting, way back then!

  78. My favorite birthday memory is when I was a kid. My parents said they didn't have enough money to get me a puppy. But we could go visit the SPCA anyway. We did. The money story was just a cover so they could figure out which puppy was to perfect match for me. I walked with a puppy.
