|See that big cardboard box, I didn't even try to wrap it.|
|The crowd moves in...|
|The experienced big girls helping her|
get ready for her new roller blades!
|We won't discuss the road rash on the back of her thighs, |
after this happy pic was snapped.
Today was her actual day. She loved mass, I think it was because of the sun coming through. Breakfast after church for D's celebratory meal. B and our neighbor were junior docents at the Art Museum. And then the exciting part of the day -D got her ears pierced. It was a total surprise. When we got to the store there was a huge range of emotions - utter excitement, apprehension and stoicism, shock and tears and finally pride - she was officially a big girl! We took the pain away with the spending of a gift card at the Disney store and a Blizzard cone at DQ.

|"The artist is unknown..."|
|Keeping it in the FF family, our girl from next door tells us about|
|All done at the MAM.|
|Getting ready was okay, but you could see the|
uneasiness creep in.
|Yeah, not what she signed on for...|
|Those were not crocodile tears, my friends...|
|And a Blizzard from DQ makes it all better.|
It is good to be seven. And it is good to be the mom when she turns 7.
