This is the house we bought in the background. There was quite a bit of fix-up to do to this house, but at least Bob and girls pulled out carpet and got flooring down before we had to move in. Here is Danielle walking “Soffi”. . She was hired by our neighbor to walk Soffi at lunchtime, and has been enjoying her new job!
I LOVED this day! Danielle had her princess birthday party today! I had been praying for a birthday party for Danielle to “happen” but it just wasn’t happening! Life was getting in the way. So finally I scheduled it for the day of my birthday(Nov. 7. . I won’t mention the year I was born). . and it all fell into place.
I had the BEST time making this Princess birthday cake:
Crystal and Bethie were the “hostesses”, and Alissa was the photographer . (she takes really good pictures). Here’s a great pix she took of the girls playing “hide the princess”:
Kate, Lesley, Elizabeth, Hannah (down below!), Danielle (in wig I got for $1 at an “after Halloween” sale), and Courtney!
I couldn’t ask for a better birthday!
Today is a great day to post since it is Danielle’s 8th birthday. . :). . . So here is a picture of our “baby”. . . Poor Bob won’t be home until tomorrow to celebrate with us, but she had a great day anyway as she opened Grammie and Pap’s gifts. The dress we all LOVED (my mom has great taste), and she immediately put it on, but it is a tad tight. Nevertheless it stayed on all day, even though it MUST go back to Kohl’s.
In case you’re wondering. . . we still haven’t found a house here to buy. Finally, a couple of days ago, I started asking God if maybe He doesn’t want us to buy a house here? (Duh? After 17 months of looking for a house?) Might make sense. I am trying to hear His voice. Alissa is wearing out Crystal by getting her to help her study for a World Literature test. Bethie went to Girls’ chorus practice. Crystal worked on her Biblical Foundations course (it’s an online course she is taking from Bryan College. . although she has not def. decided that’s where she wants to go for college. We’re leaving that up to her.)
Other than those activities, it was a special girl’s birthday day.
