Birthday Memories

June 18, 2012

I can’t believe my sweet middle child is already nine.

This past Saturday she had some friends over for some birthday party fun…

  • we went for some frozen yogurt treats
  • splashed around in the pool
  • decorated cupcakes
  • and sang “Happy Birthday” (very fast and very loud)
  • ordered some pizza and yummy garlic rolls
  • had a slumber party
  • for breakfast the next morning… decadent cinnamon rolls.

Another year older and more grown-up with each day. My beautiful girl, with her pretty smile, bright blue eyes and sweet, sweet heart. So loved by all. But most of all by her daddy and I!!!

    Isn’t it amazing how fast they grow up?
    My daughter is starting High School this year, I can hardly believe it!
    That’s a great picture, looks like they had a wonderful time!

      It is amazing. My son is starting middle school in the fall and I can’t quite believe it. Seems like yesterday I dropped him off for his first day of Kindergarten.

    My daughter just turned nine, too! It’s such a great age: grown, but still innocent and sweet! Looks like a great birthday celebration with some dear friends!

      Yes, I kept it small… too much drama otherwise. This was a great group and they all got along really well. 9 is a pretty nice age… Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

    You couldn’t have done one more nice thing for her. That was a fabulous party! Happy Birthday to your girl!

      Thank you, Liz. She did have a good time and so did her friends. I love doing stuff like this for her. 🙂

    It looks like she had an elegant tea party, too. How wonderful. And cupcakes are the best!

    • Susi June 19, 2012 at 10:00 am

      Actually, no tea party… But they were decorating cupcakes!!!

    PS — I had to backtrack here manually. I think something may have gone wrong with your linkup? Or maybe it’s just me?

      Yes, the link was broken… I fixed it. Thanks.

    It sounds like the perfect birthday. What a beautiful memory to capture!

      She did have a great day. And I hope, she’ll have wonderful memories from this.

    They grow too too fast! My neice is graduating from grade school this Thursday. I remember holding her when she was just a baby ::sniff::

      I know, sometimes you really just want to stop time or freeze a moment for a little while.

    Love the black and white picture!

    Ah they grow up so quick. Sigh.

    • Susi June 20, 2012 at 10:00 am

      Yes, they sure do. Enjoy your little guys while they are little… I know, everyine says that but it’s oh so very true!

    What a special photo. I know it was a memorable day for her.

    • Susi June 20, 2012 at 9:57 am

      I hope so. I think, in the end he smaller more intimate celebrations will stick out…

    I love it! My oldest girl turns 11 next month and we’ll be having some kind of fun with her friends, but we haven’t decided what yet.

    • Susi June 21, 2012 at 9:54 pm

      I hope, you’ll have lots of fun whatever you decide to do. 🙂
