Un-Birthday Party

We had Grace's un-birthday tonight because Daddy is going to be gone on Friday at Lifelight in Sioux Falls.  I can't believe that my little girl is turning five! She is such a bundle of energy, full of life and a never ending slough of words.  I love her tender heart and her eagerness to be so very generous with her time and talents.  She brings lots of laughter and joy to our home and I am so thankful God gave me Grace to be my first born.  I am blessed because of her.

As you can see, her sister and her cousins had a better view of the box.  We had to tell them to sit on their hands so Grace could actually see her own present.

Every girl needs a pair of Barbie Roller-skates.  (along with knee, elbow and wrist pads)

Adie really wants a puppy for her birthday, but she is just going to have do with Hershey (the neighbor's dog, aka their cousin's house)

Last week Grace was a little distraught over the fact that she wasn't going to have her Golden Birthday until she turned 29.    Little is an understatement.  She had full blown tears and sobs over this revelation. 

 I told her, "That's okay honey, I haven't had my golden birthday yet.  I have to wait until next year."

Her reply between even louder sobs, "Mom, you are so old.  I don't want to wait that loooooooong."

Eventually like most dramas at our house, I was able to distract her onto something else.  It was a funny moment to be crying over your golden birthday.  I am curious to know what she thought was going to happen on her golden birthday.

Happy UnBirthday Gracie! I really can relate to the drama over "waiting". I think I started having dinner table WARS with my parents over not dating until I was 16 when I was about 6!! :) I am not sure if I thought that Prince Charming was going to come a-courtin' when I was 8 and I'd miss the chance or I just needed something to worry about... but it was full-scale DRAMA! :)
Have a great girls' weekend! :)
OH- and--- I agree with Grace... you really are SOOOOOOOOO old! :) hee hee hee!
