My baby is now 8 years old. Eight! I can’t believe how fast the years have flown by. This has been a year full of awesome changes and my “little” girl has really blossomed recently. She is probably one of the funniest people I know and has lightning-fast comedic responses. We get whacked with Kali zingers all day long.
We are going away next weekend for her birthday; it’s what she wanted to do. Yesterday we just hung around here and had a nice, quiet day. I was thankful for that since my migraine seemed to want to stick around for another day. Blech.
Here’s Kali’s day in pictures. Mind you, she refused to get dressed at all, so all her pictures are with her pj’s!
Mary came and spent the night with us. She did the big chalk board for Kali.
And then snored right next to her sister. This is just so cute.
Someone was happy to have her whole bed to herself.
I made some blueberry pancakes and then she wanted to open gifts.
Mary got her Sirius Black’s wand from Harry Potter. I feel a wand fight coming on soon.
And then Mary got her movie passes so she can see the next Harry Potter movie in July (or is it June?). Kali was thrilled.
We got her a new game for her DSi
Hannah got her a Tangled doll. I almost caught the hug!
Mary doesn’t like me. At all.
Oooh look! It’s pumpkin face Mary! I’m diggin’ her new nose piercing. Very cute.
Kali opened up Grandma and Grandpa’s gift. Oh my!
She was so happy!
They hung out and played the new DSi game.
Hannah made her an awesome birthday banner.
Someone didn’t like getting up so early, so she went back to sleep. She left right before lunch. Bye Mary!!!! And may I add that my awesome oldest child just got 4 A’s!!!! She’s a rock star and we are so proud of her.
Kali asked for my cinnamon coffee cake as her birthday cake. Yay!
I was able to ‘veganize’ is and it was incredible!
After dinner (I made General Tso’s Chick’n) it was time for cake.
OMG. This was just a huge pan of sugary goodness. I think we were all on a sugar high afterwards, especially since we also had vanilla ice cream with it. Then we crashed. Hard.
Happy Birthday to my awesome, silly, sweet, loving, funny, to-the-point, creative, sarcastic, smart, beautiful, and full-of-light Kali Olivia. I love you, I like you, and I am thrilled to be your mom.
