We will be celebrating our beautiful and sweet little granddaughter's 7'th birthday over here Sunday. I asked her to give me a list of ideas last night.

This is what she wrote down in hot pink crayon on computer paper:

Ahhh...a girl can dream. :)

I think her spelling abilities are good for a seven year old and she has been spelling and writing like this well since before she started first grade this year. She is advanced in her reading and devours books quickly. I didn't know she read so well until one night last summer when I printed the lyrics to Billy Joel's song "Uptown Girl" for her so she could sing all the words. She likes that song. :) I was astounded when she read the entire thing out loud. So I had her read my blog and various things around the room. She had just gotten out of kindergarten at that point!

We are all so proud of her! Not only does she do well academically, but she is a s beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She has a great sense of humor and is compassionate and loving. We are all blessed to have her in our lives. :)

She wrote this on her own last night while I was working up in the attic.

Then when she finished she came up to help and was so excited when we came across a whole bunch of the boys books that were well protected all this time. Adam Raccoon books, Berenstein Bears, Dr Suess (still my favorite), and a whole bunch more.

Thanks Angel. Devan loves a party! She maintains her position in the family as the official cake taster before the cake is sliced. A job she is dedicated and eager to do ;)

She was soooo excited and got lots of nice gifts. I especially love her pretty bike! White with hot pink and turquoise flowers and a new pink bike helmet.

7 is such a fun age.

The party lingered into the evening. I like when that happens. It was a perfect day all around. Good company, good food, good weather and fun. :)
