Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


And Just Like That - She's Half Way To The Teen Years

She turned seven. Where have the years gone. I wish for her to remain little and yet I love seeing her grow up.

And Just Like That - She's Half Way To The Teen Years
She is so spicy and I really mean that!

Ooh and dramatic! I cannot imagine what it will be like in the teens!

She is a lovely girl, a blessed girl. I'm glad she is my daughter.

Happy Birthday to my sweet!

I couldn't afford a party for her, but hurried got her this table all for her. We told her she could eat anywhere she wanted for her special day.

She chose Chuck E. Cheese :)

But they had many new games as they haven't been in such a long time and both kids had wonderful fun!

Then we came home, cut the cake and she got some gifts.

I had told her to write of list of all the things she wanted. Oh and she did. She did!

We were able to get her a few things and I had saved up something from Christmas and other things put away over the months. She was delighted.

She has been counting down to this day since her 6th birthday! And let me tell you. She does NOT forget anything!

Now she is making a list for what she wants to do with the money her grandparents gave her. :) Should be quite interesting.
