Well, we now have a nine year old living in our home. Where did the last almost decade go?! I feel completely inadequate to raise a 9 year old, not to mention her TWO siblings, but I am excited for Shey to get older, to experience fun things and find her interests and talents. Shey amazes me with her positive attitude, her kindness, and her love for Donny and Violet. I really do feel blessed to have her as a daughter, as she teaches me every day.P1040183

Birthday sprinkle pancakes… one of Shey’s favorite birthday traditions.P1040172

Birthday Dinner at Tucanos… Shey with her Mango Cod Fish… her very favorite food in the world!P1040173

We quite enjoyed our meal. It had been two years since we’ve been there!P1040185

And the Birthday Girl with her cake… check out the smoke from the candles! She must be getting old!

Of course, with a birthday comes a birthday party in this house… this year’s theme was MasterChef Jr. The kids decorated hats and aprons, made their own smoothies, had a blind taste test, and decorated cupcakes. Triniti (the girl on the back row with the glasses) won the award! She blew us all away with her kitchen skills! And I think everyone had a good time. Grandma, Grandpa, and Amy (and Sam) came up for the party. G’Pa and Amy were the judges, and all three helped out so much, I couldn’t have done it without them! Shey thanked me for the party later that afternoon, so I’m pretty sure that means it was a success. 🙂P1040192 P1040193 P1040195 P1040196 P1040202 P1040206 P1040208 P1040209
