Just a quick post to remember what we did this week… a big week in the Pettigrew home. Izzy turned 9 today, and Amanda will be 21 thursday! I am not liking it one bit that my kids are getting so OLD.
We spent the weekend home with Matt’s family (technically they are now my family too by marriage – ha!), we had a pretty relaxing day, eating and swimming a bit.
Today I have been singing and saying, “happy birthday,” to Isabelle repeatedly… I imagine she will be relieved to wake up tomorrow and not have to listen to me 🙂 . I decided to make this http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/chocolate-explosion-cheesecake-recipe/index.html. It was delicious, but took almost the entire day to make.
Brandy, Izzy’s school para, came by to bring izzy a gift and visit on her birthday. Mom and dad visited tonight to wish Iz a happy birthday.
Emelia and I took her for a long birthday swim in her new birthday swimming suit. (there’s a theme here, huh?)
Overall a really nice day filled with lots of birthday wishes via phone, text, and facebook! I read each to Isabelle as they arrived and I know she enjoyed them all.
The good news is we get to do it all again Thursday for Amanda! Birthdays are FUN.
