Seriously - I cannot believe we are here again. Only now she is 9!! One year away from double digits, more than half way to her driver's license, and half way to graduation (thanks for pointing that one out Audrey).
My little peanut who was 5 days late and was born a wise, old soul!
In summary - here she is in a nutshell.
CRAZY FOR THE BARS
LOVER OF FASHION
A GREAT COOK (she made her own birthday cake this year)
FRIEND FOR LIFE
SUPER CAPABLE ACROSS THE BOARD
COULD BE AN EVENT COORDINATOR
Birthdays around here are all about tradition.
Choosing whatever you want to eat for all three meals
(orange crush and waffles for breakfast, thank you very much)
Listening to their cheesy "Birthday song CD"
LOADS of hugs
Anyone who knows my daughter might recall she likes to make lists.
Well, on this day.....her little brother came in with a list of his own for her birthday....
(hide and seek, tag, Candyland, build fort, make an obstacle course, go bowling, I go to grandmas)
Honestly - he kills me!
Her day was simple.
Her inner circle of friends (who I imagine will be in her age 18 blog post)
Play at home
It wasn't long ago they were all toothless and adorable like this
And now they are all big like this! Such beauties inside and out!
These two have been buddies since the womb. Be still my heart. (Lisa - I'm dying here)
A - we love you to the moon and heavens and back again times a million!!!
-Mama and Papa
My son is a pretty easy read, emotionally.
This sums up the highs and lows of his bowling experience for the day!
Hope you are all having a fabulous week!!!!
