The house is finally almost clean.  I'm not sure I'll make it to what I consider a finished product:).  No, I'm certain I won't.  But the fifty seven is cleaner than it's been in a very long time.  The refrigerator's clean, too, and that's good because in 58 minutes it'll be the sixteenth of January.  Fifty-eight minutes until it is officially an extra special day in our house ... and there's a pink and purple cake spending the night in our newly cleaned refrigerator waiting to celebrate.

This little girl, our California girl, went to bed 8, but will wake up 9.

Nine.  She is super excited ... as she should be:).  I hope she never looses the excitement of anticipating her birthday.  There are so many reasons to celebrate the gift of life.

Looking forward to giving her a big birthday hug in the morning and reminding her again how special she is to me.


  1. Happy 9th Birthday to your sweet girl. :)

  2. Can't wait to hear about her special day - nine is such a sweet number, Happy Birthday!!

  3. She was so sweet this morning! I'm glad she told me it was her birthday. She may always have that enthusiasm. I still do, even though this year will be the big 4-0 for me. UGH!!! But Happy Birthday, sweet Parker!!!!
