We celebrated Peris' 9th birthday yesterday. First Peris woke up and had to walk through the traditional streamers that we hang from the doorway of the birthday child. Then she opened up her presents-all were a big hit. Baby dolls, a bathtub, and a camp rock soundtrack went over successfully. In the afternoon we celebrated with family-it was a fun afternoon. Uncle Tim and Aunt Christine stayed for dinner (McDonalds and Taco Bell) and the kids went to bed late!! If these past nine years are any indication of how fast life is going to go by, I wish I could make time stand still:) Next year it's double digits!!!!
