My baby turned 7 years old this past month! I can hardly believe it and yet I couldn't be happier! Maybe it is because she is still so tiny that it doesn't feel like she is growing up too fast. She is such a delight and brings so much joy to our family.
My friend and neighbor Sheri (who made Isaac and Cate's birthday cakes when we were in Europe) surprised Sarah with a cheetah cake, with cheetah candles shaped like the number 7! Wow - thanks to Sheri - Sarah's birthday was a cinch for me!
And a brand new bike for the birthday girl! (With some wrestlers in the background.)
Since we only did a quick celebration on her actual birthday, we decided to go ice skating the next night. Sarah loves to ice skate! Especially now that she doesn't have her cast anymore.
The following Sunday we joined as a family to celebrated Sarah's birthday and also to remember my mom on her birthday.
Sarah loved her gifts.
Chocolate cake with a custard like center" - it's a mouthful to say but it was one of my mom's favorites!
Aunt Tess gave Sarah some straw glasses.
Then we decided to get Shakira out for a while. She has grown to almost 8 feet! She's pretty heavy for just one person to hold.
It was a wonderful celebration - with family and Shakira!
Happy Birthday SJ!
