Yes, 8 years ago today we had our 16th child, our miracle baby. She is my little sweetie still. I have baked cookies with rainbow sprinkles, and cakes and cupcakes, waiting to be frosted. We are celebrating with chicken wings, mashed potatoes, and corn, as per her request:)
I am heading to town now, taking a break from cleaning and baking, to get vanilla for the frosting...it's always something I'm out of. Maybe I'll get some balloons too. Yes, Miss Organized here. I went shopping with Emily yesterday, for an Israel feast we are having tomorrow, and got a few prizes to make little prize bags for Cam and her friends. They are not put together yet, nor are her gifts wrapped. Heck, I still haven't decided exactly what I'm going to give her yet. I did however, make a huge impulse purchase this past week:
A trampoline. It was on sale! The kids have been wanting one forever and a day, since our old one fell apart and died. I didn't want another one, Cam dislocated her elbow on the old one. But...I bought it. I was proud of myself, I was the self-appointed project engineer, and we put the whole thing together by the time Paul got home from work. He was NOT impressed. I guess we have different opinions of having a trampoline, but thankfully he's okay with it, and knows the kids just love it. It does have a safety net, but we didn't get that far before it got dark the other night, then it rained yesterday, ect.
Anyhow...tonight we are having a party for Cam. Emily and Mirielle and Mali are coming over, along with some little friends.
And, I need to move it...
