Look who's 8!!!

8 years ago I was blessed with the greatest thing to ever happen to me. As the kids would say-That was the day Olivia Rose came out of my tummy! She was in a rush, too. She came in time for me to have a room full of guests by lunchtime. She was a sweet baby and we were very lucky.
She is a very different girl now, still sweet but now a Superstar. She loves to sing and dance and not just dance but Hip-hop dance. She once told me she wanted to be a school bus driver during the day and a singer at night. Not a bad dream I guess.

The weather was perfect for cake, ice cream and presents out on the deck as the sun was going down for the day. See the smirk? Yeah, that's cash. Thanks Gramma. She also got gift cards for toys, jewelry and a new bike. See when you reach 8 years old you don't want people to buy you stuff, you want to pick out your stuff. I prefer presents and wrapping paper and bows but if you don't get the right stuff Oh, My!

I wanted to share this card from Nana to Olivia. I think it shares what we both want for her. I have been working behind the scenes to help her get back on track after a few set backs this past year. More on that another time.  I think she can do anything she wants in life-I just need her to know it.

I forgot to mention that the girl shown above in the center of the trampoline madness as well as above in a pink chiffone party dress with lipstick was too sick to go to school. Whenever she was called out on it she would hack and cough into her shoulder.
It's all good. We will continue one of my favorite traditions with a slight name change-Fooseberry Holiday. Foose Holidays were days when my Mom let us stay home just to spend some extra time with her.
