The Big 6

Today is my oldest daughter’s sixth birthday. It is so hard to believe that it has already and only been six years. I can barely remember what life was like before she was born. I seem to remember something about sleep, but it’s kind of hazy.

So, this afternoon we’ll be loading up for her first official Chuck E. Cheese party. Usually, we just walk in on the day and spend some time. This time she gets the whole birthday show and a visit from Chuck E. (which DD#2 is especially excited about it). This will also be her first birthday party that includes friends. We’ve invited five of her homeschooling friends and one from tee-ball to share in the fun.

And if that isn’t enough, my parents are coming from Kentucky. Since the older girls have birthdays a month a part, we try to alternate their fall visit so they are in for each girl’s actual birthday every other year. They started staying at a nearby hotel as of their last visit, and we are looking forward to going for a swim at the hotel pool. In addition to the birthday celebration, they’ll get to see DD#2 do gymnastics for the first time. We haven’t seen them since DD#3 was born in May, so they’ll see how much she’s grown, too.

The only bad thing is that my oldest has to miss her gymnastics class tonight. But today is her actual birthday, my husband had late meetings at the beginning of the week, and there was no way I was going to schedule a Chuck E. Cheese party for the weekend. I’m not that crazy! Anyways, she seems to think that a big birthday party is a fair trade for one missed gymnastics class.

Happy Birthday, Big Girl!!!

    Happy birthday Spunky! (or whatever her blog name is, I can’t keep them straight)

    Tell her to enjoy this last year, because next year she must start being reasonable. πŸ˜‰

    I can’t believe she’s 6! The first time I met you and Ricky was at Steve’s surprise birthday party I threw, and DD#1 was just a baby! Tell her Happy Birthday from the Steve Travis family!
