Family, friends, an American Girl theme, balloons and cake…Nora’s birthday wish came true for her 8 year-old birthday party! 🙂
For years Nora has asked to paint her room purple. FINALLY, almost 8 years after we painted her nursery a newborn-neutral sage green, we’re giving her an accent wall coated in Wild Violet, which is the vibrant, bold hue she chose. We told her SOMETIME before school starts we’d paint her room, and today, while she’s away at a sleepover, we’re making quick work of this task so she’ll be surprised when she comes home tomorrow! 😀
Here’s a sequence of three pics trying this new wordpress gallery “circle” feature for the first time…it looks kind’ve cool! I just realized when you use the gallery feature, the camera properties are listed when you click on each photo, which I appreciate!
So, this is my husband “trying” to cartwheel with my daughter. LOL Actually, he did a decent job! Grownups: if you haven’t cartwheeled in awhile, you should try it. It’s fun but, harder than it looks! 🙂
When we asked Nora to pick another activity besides watching Sunday morning cartoons, she chose to play hangman. When she saw that I was trying to take their photo she kept playing with her tongue sticking out, not looking at me. This is the only shot I caught with her tongue in. I wished I snapped away with her tongue sticking out though! Oh, well. 😛
