(She wanted a carrot cake, and Dad delivered.  But we didn't have anything we could use as carrot jockeys.  Bummer.)

Vicki had a birthday on Saturday.  My oldest child is now nine years old.  That makes me...ancient.

In keeping with recent tradition on this blog, here are nine things about Vicki you may or may not know:

1. She has read the entire Harry Potter series more times than me, by a long shot (and I've read it at least seven times.)
2. She is completely unconcerned about what other people think of her.
3. She hates it when people spell her name wrong.  It's sort of an "Anne-with-an-e" kind of thing.

4. She cannot function if she doesn't have a book to read.
5. She has never needed as much sleep as normal people.
6. She loves projects.  For example: she has sewn herself a skirt and knitte several hats, and is currently crocheting a scarf and sewing a bathrobe.

7. Her favorite foods are: meatloaf, pork chops, chicken tacos, and pizza.
8. She loves to sing.
9. She is the most perpetually cheerful person I know.

Happy birthday, Vicki!!!


  1. She must be fabulous..she is your child and a Harry Potter fan! Happy Birthday, Vicki..with an 'i' :)

  2. Yay, Happy Birthday, Vicki! I still remember the morning you called me to tell me you had gone into labor, Ross. What a wonderful day!

  3. Happy birthday, Vicki!! Wish I could get to know your girls, Alli. They sound amazing.

    (Is it weird that whenever I see carrots on a cake now it takes me a minute to figure out what's wrong with the cake, then I realize I'm looking for a naked baby? Is it just me??)

  4. She is so adorable! And I CANNOT believe she's 9. CRAZY!

  5. Happy Birthday Vicki!! She is so great. What a great thing to not care at all what people think. I wish I could bestow that gift on my girls...well on all girls really.

  6. Happy Birthday Vicki! I hope you still don't care what people think about you when you're a teenager, but that is the greatest attitude EVER. :)

  7. Happy Birthday, Vicks!

    Has she knitte any hats for me?

  8. Hey, don't make fun of my typos!

    And I bet she'd take orders if you asked nicely :)
