Happy Eighth Birthday, Danica

It's a special day today; the girl celebrates the completion of 8 enthusiastic years and looks forward to a 9th. I still remember her greeting bellow all those years ago as she entered the world as well as a few nights of rocking the baby whilst mom gathered what sleep that she could. Those were precious moments; I'm so happy that I took the opportunity and the time.

It wasn't for a number of years that I took to making a collage for the kids' birthdays. The first, him at age 4 and her at age 6, featured photos from all of their years. Nows, I just use photos from the past year. I don't know how long I will keep doing this as I somehow imagine that there will be fewer pictures as they grow, but we shall see.


I also have been making my own cards. This is the card for this year: front (and back) first, then the inside. I used some humour on inside of this one.


Below are the collages from the past two years.

Why do I feel like I've been invisibly sitting on one of your living room chairs, drinking coffee, for eight years or more? Besides being a lovely girl, Danica is a lucky one to have such a wealth of activity caught with such love and skill.

I love that card you made for her. Very pretty and very very funny! And the collages are great too. It's hard to believe she's already 8 years old!
