She's nine!

Nine years and eleven days, actually. She's already counting down to ten!
When I think about Daisey I picture this little girl:

So, how has this happened?

Time flies huh?
This year we had a family bbq party. There were lots of cousins to play with, lots of yummy food to eat and lots of girly presents! Daisey was a very happy girl!

She gave me specific instructions on what kind of cake and decorations she wanted but I got sick and it just didn't happen. She picked one out at Sam's Club and sure enough, the world didn't come to an end.

My favorite part of this picture is Maggie's face. She's just as excited to see what is in that present as Daisey is!
And, I love Isaac's face in this one! You can almost hear him saying, "Are you kidding me? Another barbie? Is this girly party over yet?"

Her gift from us this year was a fish tank. It's what she wanted more than anything in the whole wide world!
At the end of the day, after everyone had gone home the birthday girl announced that she was so happy her heart might burst! Aww, now that's what every mom loves to hear!
After much twirling in her new pink nightgown from Grandma, they all went to bed happy and high on sugar. And they all lived happily ever after!

Bubbles! Bubbles! Bubbles!

Bubbles aka boredom buster! We used this bubble solution recipe but there are plenty of bubble recipes out there. We were supposed to let it sit for 24 hours. We waited about 8 and the bubbles still turned out great! How cute is Daisey's label?

For hours of bubbly fun, round up bubble wands in all shapes and sizes,

including fly swatters from the dollar store that we cut big circles in, I know, weird. But they were a hit!

Pour bubble solution into a container large enough for sharing. Sharing is key.
Then let them have at it!

Bubble machine? Don't waste your money. We were unimpressed.

Enter Bubble Train.

This little guy however is awesome! We learned that after 3 full hours of play the batteries run out. 3 hours of laughing and playing and (get ready) no fighting is well worth the money spent on batteries in my book!
