Seven!



This pearl of a girl woke up this morning and said "Mommy, I was so excited for today that I couldn't fall asleep last night." Sweet Abigail is seven today. It feels like I was just snuggling up with her after her birth and imagining all of the wonderful things we would get to experience together. Where have the years gone? Will this growing up nonsense please stop! On our agenda for today:

::Ryan and I are having lunch in the school cafeteria per Abby's request.

::I will eat cupcakes with her class.

::We will spoil her rotten.

My children have a "friend party" every other year [on the even number birthday's]. This is Abby's off year. To make her day extra special I was up late last night making a pretty party hat, a flowery birthday banner and wrapping her gifts. We will eat at her favorite restaurant with her favorite friend and celebrate seven years of having this most lovely, caring, helpful, creative and beautiful girl in our lives.
