Happy Birthday to YOU!!

Blow out your candles!!!My little "Big" girl turned *7* yesterday. WOW! It is so hard to believe that she is seven! Yikes, sometimes the time sneaks away from you :) I let Kaci have a birthday party for her friends at school. Yep, we invited the whole class. Why not? Only three, yes three came last year. How bad could it be? Well, almost the whole class RSVP'd. 13 out of 17 kids. Plus her aunt Jakan and cousin Tori. I got lucky. Jesse had gotten the day off. (they were slow at work and told him not to come in.) I didn't realize how lucky I was until we got home. Oh, two of her classmates were sick, so we still ended up have total of 13 first graders :) Around 4 o'clock my mom came by to help too. She had promised to come over before I knew Jesse was going to be there. So...it was very nice to have both of them there. Jesse was very good w. the kids! Kaci got soooo many nice gifts! WOW, how lucky? And so far with cards in the mail, $50! Yeah, when I was little, I never got money. everyone made sure to get us 'real' gifts. Last summer I opened savings accounts for the girls. Hoping Kaci would learn more about saving money. (and hopefully be better at it than me!!!) Yes, she is very excited about getting money and watching it grow in her savings!
