She's a BIG Girl now.....

blogged by me domestic goddess On 9/22/2008 05:35:00 PM
Izzy turned 8 yesterday, where do those years go. You know the ones that everyone says, enjoy them as they don't last long. I thought i had enjoyed every year, until I turned round and my little girl suddenly one day turned into an independent 8 year old, whom i hardly saw on her birthday. Why? you may ask, she was too busy being independent and playing with friends!

One of her presents from us was a secret room make over. I painted her room in a couple of hours. Peter put her desk together , put up a new pole, and I dressed her room. Not quite a 60 minute make over, but none the less a pretty quick one! Thankfully she loves it!. I filled her room with pink and purple balloons and piled all her presents onto her desk. She raced through the front door today, straight upstairs to sit at her desk and do her homework! A first! Then proceeded to decide which of her many lovely new outfits to wear, LOL, and she is only 8!!

Her party was Hannah Montana themed, and most of the girls had either a Miley or Hannah wig on at one time!

Before her big day, it was the premier of Camp Rock on Friday night. Izzy had some friends round and I did quesedinas (?), chips and dips, pop corn and Krispy Kreme donuts. Oh boy the diet went well and truly up the garden path after i scoffed 3 in a row, yikes!

During the day, I had met up with Sue for a belated birthday lunch and some last minute shopping for Izzy's party.

The girls had spent the Saturday at Nanas for a sleepover and Peter and I were invited to a neighbours for dinner. Sunday morning I rang Nan's to find out Lilly was a poorly little girl. I waited for a double batch of brownies to come out of the oven, that went to pick Lilly and Izzy up. poor Lilly spent most of yesterday with a fever in bed. Today she is a bit brighter, but complaining of neck and back ache as well as a sore throat. Sounds like flu to me, what do you think?
My weekend was a busy and hectic one and Pencil Lines also went live yesterday!

I did a layout about my first "harvest". I am pleased i have documenting this very "momentous" occasion, LOL. Used Basic Grey mellow, garden twine and Scenic Route chipboard alphas.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend. i have a very busy week completing deadlines, and tomorrow I AM playing with my Bad Girls kit!!!!
Hugs and thanks for stopping by

    Happy belated birthday to your daughter. My own daughter will be 8 in December, and I'm very worried now that I've read that they become very independent!!!! Actually.... could she be more independent??!! If it's not raining she's out playing with her friends as it is.
