Nine Years Old

Danica had her ninth birthday yesterday. I remember when it was just about All Danica on this blog, but times have changed. But today, it is All Danica once again.

First, I have gotten in the habit of printing a collage on the kids' birthdays using photos from the past year.


To start the day, Gramma gave her a new dress.


Then, we went to her mother's work. In the first photo she is carrying flowers for Mom's new office. In the next two, Danica insisted on the grand tour, which included meeting various of Mom's co-workers. Danica was in her glory, meeting all of these folks, some fpr the first time.




After that, we went out for lunch.





Later, after driving back into our town, our meal had digested enough that we could enjoy dessert at DQ.




Finally, came family, supper, cake and gifts.





(I went for a bit of a retro look on this one.)
What a nice day! We don't always have good weather on her birthday at this time of year, but it was fine yesterday. She doesn't always get the day off school, but since JJ was on a field trip that day, it seemed right for her to have a day off.

It's been fun to watch her grow up via your posts over the years. Here's wishing her a very good year between now and her 10th birthday!

Perfection all around indeed. I took the worst pictures of Zoe's 11th birthday, but you got great ones. :)

Happy Birthday Danica!!! I love your new birthday dress-you are very beautiful.
While you were out in your new dress and sandals, we had the biggest storm that our island has had in 10 years----49.4 cms of snow with high winds!!!
