Happy Birthday Ria


Yesterday was Ria's Birthday.
She turned 8!
How can that be?
It seems like just yesterday 
she was a tiny baby
and now here she is
8 YEARS OLD!

Her regular birthday party
will be at 
Happy Joe's Pizza place
on Wednesday
but MyHero & I
 decided to celebrate
her special day on her real birth day.

Ria is a very sweet little girl.
She is the first one to rush 
over to give you a kiss
and tell you she loves you...
Well....unless SweetCheeks
pushes her away.

Here she is at age 3
when she was a flower girl..
Look at those eyes and 
that naturally curly hair.

Last year she had her 
birthday party
at Snips & Giggles
and they made her curls
even curlier.
But last night,
everything was simplified.
Mom made spaghetti
and cupcakes
and MyHero and I 
enjoyed a little
early evening party.
Do you know what Ria likes?
Not toys!
She likes clothes!
LOVES clothes.
For her 3rd birthday and 
every birthday since
she has wanted clothes.
Oh...and shoes...
Did I mention shoes?
Can you see her owies from
wearing her flip flops in
Orlando?

We ended the night with cupcakes
and a mini-cake.
It looked wonderful-
although I didn't eat any.
Thank you, Ria,
for sharing your birthday with us.
And while you were looking up 
with Lulu and smiling
while Mom took your picture,
SweetCheeks was trying to figure
out how she could blow the candles
out before you did
without getting scolded.
Cuz she is just
THAT KID!
And she is 
YOUR LITTLE SISTER!

Hmmmmmm....
I think you should get a special
birthday present just
for that!

God bless you, honey...
We love you to the 
moon and back!

I never met a shoe girl that I did not like. Happy Birthday to Ria! It's my little one's 12th birthday today. He does not like shoes and would love to be barefoot or in flip-flops every day. How did he come out of me???

Happy birthday to Ria! I hope she has alot of fun being 8!!

Clothes and shoes...she's a gal after my own heart (and my daughter's.)

And I hear what you're saying...my daughter just turned 22, and I'm wondering how in the world that is possible. Wasn't she just a baby last week?

Blessings to you,
Patti

Happy Belated Birthday Ria! I can't believe you didn't stick your finger in the icing at least. It would be so tempting. But a minute on the lips a lifetime on the hips or something like that.
