Adventures in Turning 9

Dear Victoria,
  I planned for days for your ninth birthday.  I didn't sit down last night until after ten last night after  we shopped for your new outfit for today…I made sure the house was just perfect…so when you woke up this morning it would be amazing.  You were bouncing around the house in your jammies this morning you were so excited.  You wanted to come to school with me.  After we dropped off the boys, we got donuts.  In that short time Christian threw up at daycare and I had to go and get him.  Laura offered to keep you at school.  Nothing was going to rain on your parade!  I took you to lunch at Cup N Cone.  Daddy met us there and you smiled the entire time!  After school we went home quickly because we planned on celebrating at MOA.  On the way there our (brand new) tire blew up on the highway during rush hour.  The police came and daddy had it changed in under nine minutes.  We continued on to the mall with the spare tire.  We ended up in horrible construction traffic.  It took us two hours to get to the mall.  Only to find out Sea Life shut down early today!!

Finally we made it to Cadillac Ranch.  You ended up loving your dinner, enjoyed your dessert (almost as much as Brecken!) and even rode the bull!  You asked to go to Build a Bear….which after the night we had, Daddy and I were happy to take you there.

After that, you were jumping around saying, "This is the BEST birthday ever!"

It didn't all pan out the way I planned, however, it is a birthday to remember.

I could not love you any more than I do.  Thank you for being the best daughter I could ever have dreamed of.  Thank you for being so kind and patient - to everyone - but especially your little brothers.  Thank you for being such a thoughtful little girl with wonderful manners.  Thank you for loving me the way you do.  Thank you for making me a mommy.

Happy Birthday Lovey!
All my love,
