Six, Six, We are Six

September 5th was Vivi's big day. The birthday girl requested breakfast in bed and so Zoey and I accomodated her. She had granola with milk, strawberries, and orange juice.

Zoey and I baked a cake and in the evening we all headed over to Pepere's house. We like him involved in all the family celebrations.

Vivi enjoyed opening her loot, playing with her new Littlest Pet Shop sets. She really likes her super light weight, super small, and super pink binoculars! She is stoked about those.

Vivi's godmother, Sarah, stopped by for a quick birthday hug, kiss and a little cake. She recited the poem from below for Vivi. She is so thoughtful and sweet. I think we will keep Sarah!

When I was One,
I had just begun.

When I was Two,
I was nearly new.

When I was Three,
I was hardly Me.

When I was Four,
I was not much more.

When I was Five,
I was just alive.

But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever.
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.

By A. A. Milne

Grammie had me get a new gymnastics suit for Vivi. I found a perfect pink, sparkly one. She wears it quite a lot! She loves her new gymnastics identity.

Arriving in our mailbox on her birthday, as if planned, is a lovely set of gifts from Susan. I was so touched.

Susan made bracelets for Vivi, Zoey, and me. She also gifted me my very first pair of hoop earrings! I love, love, love them. Thank you.

Aren't they lovely? Vivi's bracelet even has the most fantastic butterfly fimo beads. What a great find in bead land. She is sleeping in it.

She's so beautiful. Six is wonderful! And, she wears it well. I hope it's good for all of you.

Mail from Ohio to Alaska takes FOREVER! (it went out over a week ago!)
I'm glad it got to you safely.
Lorelei picked out all the beads and actually strung them on Vivi and Zoey's pieces. My little junior beading queen.
Happy Birthday, Miss V!

Happy Belated Birthday, Vivi. Love your gymnastics outfit. Sarah's poem is so cute.

Trixie, are you coming to Cape May with us? It is a long migration, true, but then Artic Terns fly 25,000 miles under their own power. You wouldn't let a 12 inch long bird outdo you, would you?

Kathi --

I am trying! It all hinges on the "powers that be" at work. I will know in about a week.

Oh what a great reprise of that all important 6th birthday. And Miss Vivi looks so Olympic in her gymnastic suit--all pink sparkles.
