Happy 7th Birthday Kirsten!This is Kirsten three years ago, when she was four.This is Kirsten today, seven years old. She still looks the same but she is bigger and has more sass and attitude.
Shopping for her this year was harder than shopping for Jake. If that is possible? Kirsten wanted simple things for her birthday. A diary with a lock and a Webkinz. Simple enough right? We also knew a few other things that she had mentioned wanting the past couple months, like a bathrobe, that we thought we would get her as well.. Yesterday I shopped for six hours looking for these things. All I found was a small toy diary that looked like it would break the first time you tried to unlock it, and no bathrobe. I guess bathrobes are Christmas items from what everyone told me. I went to every single clothing store in Idaho Falls looking for one. As I was in Wal-Mart picking up a few things for her "pie" that she wanted, I ran into a neighbor. I was telling her my dilemma when she suggested since you can't lock the journal, why not get her something she can put it in that locks. That's when the light went on. (If you haven't noticed by now that I lack the creative genes.) We got her a lock box for her journal, money and whatever she wants to put in there. It has a set of keys and also an electronic code. She loved it. As for the bathrobe, I actually came up with the idea of making her one and letting her pick out the fabric. So I found a pattern and that took care of that. Kirsten was thrilled with her presents. Kirsten also wanted a pumpkin pie for her birthday cake. It was as easy as....
We love you Kirsten!
