Happy 8th Birthday Jianna!



Today, my littlest baby turns 8...sigh....yup, I still have trouble believing there are no toddlers running around my house. Maybe it's because there were so many for so long or that 8 seems so very grown up...maybe I am having a mini-mid-life-Crisis but let me tell you, if Mark had not visited the surgeon years ago....

OK, back to the Birthday girl.
Miss Jianna got to plan the family dinner tonight and she decided on wings and shrimp...
That's IT!
For her, this would be the ultimate dinner.
We decided on Banana splits since she'd never had one and will have cake at her party on the weekend. So, wings, cold shrimp w/cocktail sauce and banana splits w/homemade strawberry topping, chocolate and caramel.

I did get her to agree to these potatoes with a bit of variation, (she is her mother's daughter after all!)
She does not THINK she likes pepper...(I'll sneak it in, don't tell her), so she wants them with chopped chives, bacon bits, shredded cheese and served up w/sour cream.

Speaking of My littlest munchkin being like her Mama...



This is Jianna's Birthday Plan all organized by category...ahhhh, a child who loves to organize!
I LOVE this kid!

Happy Birthday to my sweet Fahionista who always wishes she were older and that she lived in Paris France..."The fashion capital of the world you know!"

After we do presents, I will have to post a pic of what Maria found for her...perfect and I would never have thought of it!

Cheryl,

I know, it's hard to believe how fast time can fly!
I was showing her the picture of you and Cindy and I right after she was born...she was kind of proud to have had some extra people there to welcome her.
Thanks for being there then and for many other special occasions over the years...Love you!
