happy birthday izzy!

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.

    Happy Birthday to Izzy and Amanda!

    I forgot Izzy shares a birthday with my daughter, Bree. I’m so glad her birthday was special. I actually got to be with Bree on her birthday. I posted some photos on my blog of her with her cute baby bump.

    Hugs
