I don't know what you're dreaming,
Abby's bday started with french toast and coffee. Yes, my children like coffee. Then, we went swimming at the pool. On the way home our truck started messing up. Fortunately, we made it home and got the truck in to get it fixed. It delayed the big event for Abby's bday, but all turned out fine in the end. For dinner we had Papa John's pizza and a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake. Abby is really into monkeys so her plates and napkins were Curious George. They didn't have a monkey cake so she said, "I like penguins, too." So the cake had penguins on it. She had a great monkey/penguin party. Whatever floats her boat.

Abby has been asking for months to get her ears pierced. I wasn't sure at first. I guess I had in my mind that she should be older. But, as she persisted, I started to ask myself, "why am I not letting her?" I had no good reason other than I have seen other moms make their daughters wait until a certain age. Since I couldn't think of a reason not to, I decided to let her do it. This is before the big event.
At first when it happened, she said, "Ouch!" and then opened her eyes and looked at me as if, "is that it?" She was so brave through the whole process. You can't really see, but she chose pink flowers. I had a great closeup picture of her ear but because I am new to this blogging thing, I can't figure out how to add another picture. So, I will put it in the next post.
