Yesterday was a fantastic day for fun. We started the day with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday to you while still in jammies.She opened a couple of gifts and off we went to an Easter egg hunt where the kids each got a prize and enough candy that the bunny could skip our house next weekend (though he won't).
Next, we went to Sam's to pick up her cake and some food to grill out later. We ate lunch there, hurried home to change clothes and go downtown to Lic's for her friends birthday party. It was lots of fun, lots of sugar and lots of great friends with gifts to match.
Then, home again home again jiggity jig for rests and readying the house for our family birthday party.
We grilled burgers, had chips and dip and veggies, fruit and dip and then opening more presents. She got so many neat things, but I think the money from her cards was the biggest hit.
Only one time yesterday did I get teary and it was when we were getting out of the truck and I opened her door to help her out, hugged her and realized how fast time really does go. 12 yrs until she is 18. What will I do then? Sigh...
It's all going so fast, and I am enjoying watching both kids grow and change, but does it have to be so fast?????
I will post a few pictures here later and all are up at my flickr account.
