Alice turned nine the other day. She woke up to a room filled with white balloons, post it notes all over the house full of things that we loved about her, a surprise visit at school during lunch, a dinner date with her mom and dad, cake and presents. Poor little Laura tried her hardest to not to rain on Alice's parade, but not being able to blow out the candles was almost too much for her to take.

Well....maybe next year.

There are so many families out there that have great, beautiful, creative family pictures. We're not one of them. I don't like spending money, but I'm thinking that sometime in 2012 we need to fork over the $$$ for a decent picture.

So while this won't be on the Christmas card, stayed tuned in for 2012. That will give me plenty of time to get my act together. I hope.
