Happy Birthday!

My sister has always made Alissa's cakes, but
this year was extra special for my sister since
she has recently opened her bakery.

Today was my precious little girl's birthday.  I simply cannot believe she is seven-years-old!  She is such a blessing to me!  We celebrated her birthday with a few of her friends that came to her birthday party yesterday.  It will probably be her last party (sniffle, sniffle).  We have discussed that for future birthdays we will probably just celebrate at home, letting her ask a couple of friends to come and play.  She seemed to be just as happy with that idea.  Since today was her actual birthday, I let her take a break from school work.

Tomorrow will also be a light school work day since we will be going to pick up my husband's truck from the shop.   (It's a good thing Alissa's first grade year is officially over!)  Bill has promised to take us to Lane's peach packing plant on the way home.  I am so excited!  We have lived here for over three years, and I've been wanting to go there for a family outing since we moved in.  It is a neat little place with tours of the plant, homemade peach ice cream (very important here in Georgia!), a little store, and a play area for the children.  I hope we have fun!  I think I need to go researh how to can peaches and make peach preserves!  I see a peach cobbler in my future tomorrow evening!

Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
