The day before Kirsten’s birthday we were not feeling well and headed to the doctor. It turned out the Kirsten, Katie and I all had strep. Not fun. I felt so bad for my little girl being sick on her 8th birthday. She was supposed to give a talk in Primary on her birthday too. She took it in stride though, I was so proud of her. We still let her open her presents that night though.
We also got her a purse
And her very own Harry Potter Robes
She was pretty excited to say the least
Since we all had sore throats, we bought an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins
Then Tuesday night we had my dad and Patty and Alison and Owen over for dinner and cake. Gingy apparently thought my dad’s bald head tasted good!
I can hardly believe that eight years has passed since I became a mother and held my baby girl for the first time. I had no idea that my heart could be so full of love. She has filled our lives with joy every day. I love watching her grow and develop. She is very loving and has the biggest heart of anyone I know. She has such a strong testimony of the gospel and a strong faith in her Savior, Jesus Christ. I am thrilled that she has made the decision to be baptized later this month. I feel so blessed each and every day to be her mother and to call her my daughter. Happy 8th Birthday Kirsten!
