My princess has grown up into such a sweet, smart, beautiful little girl. I'm so thankful to be her Mommy. (She even still calls me that most of the time. How long will that last???)
I've just been so sentimental lately, enjoying my kids, and thanking God for them. I guess seven just sounds so much older to me than six did. Sigh.
On her special day, she woke up and found a new bike waiting for her at the bottom of the stairs. This bike is so cool because it is a Bronco bike, blue and orange just like her favorite football team. Go Broncos!
Later that day, I got to deliver these cupcakes to school:
Knowing her as well as you all do by now, you had to know they needed to be black and white and spotted, right? These are Dalmatian cupcakes with a surprise cream cheese and chocolate chip spot in the middle. And of course, my little dog lover had to have napkins that said, "Wipe Your Paws" on them. Would you expect anything else? Hee Hee.
You other moms out there will know what I mean when I say, I was so proud of her when I went to school. She was so cute and excited and happy~ just glowing with joy. She stands out in a crowd to me. I had to wonder, "Does the rest of the world notice how special she is?" (Talk about a biased mother, huh?)I don't know why I took this picture. I just thought she looked sweet in her hair bow.
She stood at the end of the lunch line with her teacher and passed out the cupcakes to her classmates.
I think she was happy~ Or high on sugar.
That night she invited two of her buddies to go out to dinner with us to her restaurant of choice. This year she chose Red Robin.
They did a great job of making her feel special. Especially when they delivered her ice cream sunday.
It was a great birthday. I still can't believe she is seven, but seven sounds so much younger than EIGHT, so I'll just enjoy my little girl while I can.
Happy Birthday Sweetheart! Your Mama loves you more than I can put in words.
