I can't believe she's 7!

7 years ago today at 11:13AM Olivia came into this world bottom first (she was breech) weighing a whopping 8lbs 14oz. She was the chubbiest little bundle of cuteness I had ever seen and 7 years later she's still the cutest little girl I've ever seen! Of course, she was supposed to be born on January 4th but apparently was impatient and didn't want to wait an extra 2 days. Little did I know that this would define her personality. Always on the go this one!!

We started off the morning with birthday pancakes, complete with whipped cream, chocolate chips & candles!
Then we went to lunch at Red Robin. Hey, you can't beat a free birthday lunch and sundae! Well, by the time we got done finding Ben a boot for his leg so he can walk it was nearly dinner time. But that's another story for another post.

Then it was home for cake and presents. I was thrilled that Olivia was SO happy with the cake I made her :) She was actually amazed when she saw her cake {{big smiles for mommy}}

I'm no Martha Stewart but I thought the cake turned out cute anyway. I felt like I was on a cake challenge from the Food Network when I was carrying this thing to the fridge last night! Let's just say that the towers were really wobbly til the frosting had a chance to set up in the fridge.

I haven't scrapped her birthday pics yet but I did do some from my own 7th birthday. My mom, who's been in town since before Christmas, brought some of my old photos which I've been dying to scrap. My kids love looking through old photos of me and my husband so I wanted to get them in the scrapbooks and preserve the few memories I remember while they're interested!

I probably won't be posting much (if at all) over the weekend. I'm hoping my room will be repainted so I won't be in here :( But I do have a post scheduled for Sunday of some December Daily photos. And hopefully when I come back I'll have a newly painted (and organized!) scrap room. Fingers crossed! And double crossed! Toes too! Ok, that's enough....

Ethan was sad because he forgot her birthday! She will get a belated card from him! You did a fantastic job on the cake! I can't believe that you were 7 in 79- I was only 1 then- Ha Ha! Your layout is great! I went to scrap etc. and indulged in the 1/2 off sale- $66.00 later! They had great stuff! Wished you could've gone with me!

I need to ask my mom for some photos of me when I was little. Olivia's cake looked awesome!! Can't wait to see your new scrap room! I hope there's room for me. :)

Such a cute cake. If it is still standing by the time it's on the table, it's sucess!!! I loved the Little Pet Shops on it.
I hope you had a wonderful New Year. Please tell Olivia we said HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!
