On Sunday, March 13, 2005, our sweet Blossom was born on the floor of the elevator lobby on the labor and delivery floor at the hospital, (just an hour or so after the brackets were available online). That is due, in a large part, to March Madness. Pops and I always fill out a set or two or three of brackets and compete against each other for no prize other than bragging rights. (I have been the proud braggart many many many many years...) It took some time to get our old slow printer to get brackets printed out on high quality color prints! Sheesh, draft in black and white might have gotten us a room at least!! Anyway, March Madness is definitely a fun time in our family and this day, March 13, is a special day for our Blossom.
This year, we had a party - but it was early, last Thursday! Geemah wanted to join the fun and what child would turn down the option of a party EARLY to open a few presents!?!! Not ANY of my children!! So, party we did with two other families that we have met... both homeschooling families and one currently is living an RV Life adventure and the other (we met last summer) has settled in the area and has hung up their RV Life for now, just as we have. It was a ton of fun! Now, I think I'll just close my proverbial mouth and share the pictures!!
Everyone begins singing and she wonders if she should join in!?!!!
Find mom with the camera and smile when you are feeling unsure of what you should do!!
Make a wish... a GOOD 7 year old wish!
Blow out the candles... a "7" and 6 magic wand candles!
couldn't join in the fun, this year. But, I think Blossom is EX.CIT.ED that there is one from Aunt JoJo!!
"Toy Story" is kind of a big deal for our family... Bump LOVES the characters. Blossom loves Jessie
(the doll pictured above) and is always running off with Bump's Jessie doll...
Aunt JoJo solves the problem with a Jessie doll for Blossom.
(Seems as though Bump is struggling with HER having a Jessie doll. He thinks it should be his!!
Sigh... Working on it!)
Group Kid Photo...
(some of the children ARE missing from the photo - total 11 at the party, 2 stayed at home to avoid germ spread!!)
that they all enjoyed so much more the "silly face" time!!
Happy Happy Happy 7th Birthday, Blossom!!
We love you and all the March Madness you bring!!
