My mother reminded me yesterday that I hadn't posted about Victory's birthday. Between kids being gone so Tim and I could have an anniversary "get-away" at home, Christmas, and sick kids, I've gotten a bit behind. So, here goes...
A week and a half ago this lovely lady turned nine... my how time flies! (I know, I say that all the time, but it's true!!)
|Victory and Grandpa Osell|
|Victory Joy - 5mo|
On her birthday, Grandpa and Grandma Osell came and took us all out to Chuck E. Cheese. The kids all enjoy playing the arcade games and getting tickets which the b-day kid then gets to cash in. She got several cheap little things which have all about reached their life limit. LOL Everyone had a blast!
I made her cake... she informed Tim shortly before her birthday that "Mom's donut cakes are the best!" :)
(confetti cake mix with vanilla frosting and pastel sprinkles)
**At nine, Victory is beginning to read quite well (she's been a "late-bloomer" in the reading department, but is genuinely beginning to enjoy it and often amazes me with the words she can figure out).**
**This year she plans to begin her first Bible reading plan with Grandma.**
**She loves all things pink.**
**And if you can combine pink with a Lego, even better! ;)**
**She can be quite dramatic (I'm told she takes after someone else in the family -- I am certain the people that say this are referring to her father. LOL).**
**She is quite slim but her legs are long which makes finding pants a bit interesting - even with an adjustable waistband they are huge in the waist!**
Ok, mom, I got the birthday post done. Thanks for the nudge! I'll try not to be so delayed with Jericho's upcoming day. ;) Perhaps I should try to post about Christmas too? *sigh* All the good intentions in the world... I guess this sign I saw the other day pretty much sums it up:
