Today was Grace’s seventh birthday. We didn’t have a big party this year, her request, but she did have two friends over Friday night for a sleepover. Bryon had to work all weekend so next weekend we are going to go eat out somewhere fancy, also her request.
Bryon redecorated her room for her last month as his birthday present to her and I bought her some books, some new house slippers and a jewelry organizer for her ever growing collection. She and I went to church this morning. We would have skipped. Would have LOVED to sleep in but with Belle, it is no longer an option. We were up, so we went.
After church we went to Freda’s Uptown Cafe, our favorite place to eat in Marshfield for breakfast and lunch and the waitresses sang to her and brought her a gigantic bowl of ice cream with chocolate syrup and strawberries on it.
We came home and hung out for a while then headed back to town for our church’s Fall Festival. Grace dressed up like a country singing diva complete with her pink cowgirl boots.
It’s good to be seven.
