Nicole is 7 (going on 16)

Has it really been 7 years? Time flies when you're having fun, I guess. Nicole has been really looking forward to her birthday. She had her jewelry privileges taken away several months ago for lying and being sneaky. We told her she could have it back when she was seven. She may have gone a little overboard with it. She wore my earrings (which she lost), a necklace, 2 bracelets, and she wanted to wear my wedding ring. I obviously didn't let her.

We started off the day with doughnuts and Danimals yogurt drinks for breakfast. Then she went to school (wearing new clothes from Grandma Debbi) and I had lunch with her in the school cafeteria. I brought macaroni and cheese with blueberry GoGurt and fruit punch from Panera Bread. She was in heaven.

After recess, we had brownies in her class with all of her friends.

After school, her BFF, Meagan Paxman came over to play for a little while. For dinner we went to The Old Spaghetti Factory with my parents and grandparents. Again, she had macaroni and cheese. There was a man working for tips going from table to table making balloon animals. The girls each wanted a cat and Tyler wanted a dog. They were all thrilled and it was fun to watch. Finally, we came back to our house for cake and presents. Nicole got a lot of Monster High stuff which thrilled her endlessly. When we tucked her into bed that night, she told us that this was the best day of her entire life.

Mission: Accomplished.
