Addison Turns Seven!

Okay, I am so far behind on blogging.  I feel like I have a million half done posts just waiting for me to get my act together and finish them.  Well, here goes nothing.

I'm over a month late, but Addison is SEVEN now!   This year, her class is doing a "mystery person of the week" each week.  Basically they give the class clues all week about the mystery person, then on Friday they announce who the mystery person is and then his or her mom or dad comes and and spotlights the person.  Addison's teacher is awesome, so she coordinated Addison being the mystery person with her birthday.  So on her birthday I went into Addison's class and shared a little bit about her and read some of her favorite stories. Let me tell you, that class is so well behaved I seriously couldn't believe it.  I sat down to start reading the story and some twenty odd students were quietly sitting with their legs crossed and arms folded, watching me ready to listen to the story.  It was AMAZING!

We just had a little family celebration this year for Addison's birthday.  Some of the highlights were piano lessons from Grandma and a Cosmo Kid's Club membership from Grandpa.

We told Addison she could have whatever she wanted for dinner, and she opted out of a home cooked meal and asked to go to California Pizza Kitchen instead.  What can I say, the girl has good taste.  :)

She also wanted a pumpkin pie instead of a  cake this year, but I forgot to take a picture of it.  Happy Birthday Addison, I hope this next year is as great as the last!  Love You!
