My niece and her new softball glove at her Birthday Party!
Today we went to my sister P's house for a birthday bash for my niece. She will turn 9 next week. It's hard to believe that she is 9. My sister's and I were all pregnant at the same time 9 years ago. I had my #2, then came my niece, then came my nephew...all within 8 months. Needless to say my Mom was a little overwhelmed. She had 4 children, all natural, with no problemo, and here she had 3 girls that couldn't birth without some kind of complication and all c-sections. We managed to survive all that and are having a good time raising them. They are more like siblings than cousins. We all live within a 5 mile radius which makes that possible. I am very thankful for that.
Okay back to the b-day bash.....she had this wonderful spread of itlaian food!! We ate like pigs and enjoyed the fellowship with the family! Oh how I love b-day's! My niece had a football cake...you know it is SuperBowl Sunday. She is all about sports. Yet, on the other hand she loves to get all girly up too! She received loads of $$ and other gifts. I don't know about you, but kids these days have more $$ than I can ever remember receiving. When I'm out of cash....I just hit the wallett of son #2, if for some sort of reason he's out..which is not likely...he's my saver...then #1 should have some hid somewhere. No I don't steal, I ask permission first, then I leave an IOU. Like they are going to let me forget....NOT!!! Anyway she had a good party and we had loads of fun.
So Happy Birthday J! I hope you have a great year! Aunt Carrie loves you!!
