Golden Birthday!

Hope had a great golden birthday this weekend!  Joe went to wake her up on Saturday morning and she was sound asleep.  He whispered in her ear Happy Birthday and she jumped up immediately and screamed "It's my golden birthday".  It was pretty funny.

For those of you that don't know what a golden birthday is, it is when you turn the same age as the date of your birthday.  So Hope turned 7 on the 7th.

She had a pretty good day.  We started the day by opening her presents from Grandma Karen.  We were chatting with her on FaceTime at the same time so she could watch her.  Technology is AWESOME!


Joe made us pancakes and then we let hope unwrap her gifts.  She got a chalkboard for her American Girl doll, school toys.


Here is the birthday girl with her balloons.  She could hardly wait for her guests to arrive.


Here she is blowing out her candles on her birthday brownie.  That is what she wanted!  :)


Then we went out to eat at Red Lobster where she dined on macaroni and cheese, biscuits and mashed potatoes.  The rest of us had something more fitting from Red Lobster.  :)  It was good.

Today's funny came tonight when we were entering church.  Joe and I were signed up for the new membership class to join the church.  Hope was to go to the daycare area.  The last time she went there was when I went to an adoption group meeting.  She asked why she we hadn't gotten her baby sister yet?  Huh?  I laughed and had no idea what to tell her.  I hope she doesn't get her hopes up too much.  I guess we will just see what God has in store for us in that area of our lives.

Did you see the new Scrappy Gourmet blog?  Check it out.  

I also have a new kit available there for all your great Disney Memories.  You can buy it here.  Here is what it looks like.  You can see detailed shots in my Gallery at The Scrappy Gourmet.











That is it for tonight!
