Well I am attempting to play a bit of "catch-up" here on my blog, so I will be going back in time to talk about some of the happenings around the Simpson household. Don't worry though, I won't be going back to when I completely dropped the ball on blogging and documenting! I am only going back a couple of weeks. :)
So our little "Lexie Lou-who" turned 11 years old on December 18. I can hardly believe that she is getting so big! She celebrated in our standard way, dinner with close family and friends. Her dinner always consists of pork loin, mashed potatoes, and gravy. She got to open her gifts and of course the family gift in the infamous "red birthday box". (This is a tradition that started about 4 years ago and just stuck.)
Lexie requested lemon bars this year instead of a birthday cake, so since that is Marissa's specialty, she made them for her. We let Marissa present the lemon bars with the candles since she was the one that made them.
Earlier that day, I took Lexie to get her nails done. I had been in to get mine done the previous day and she was with me. My nail guy, Vince said to bring her back the next day, (he knew we were in a hurry that day). He said they would do hers for free for her birthday. She was SO excited! She felt pretty special, and she got a pretty blue color, with white flowers on the ring fingers.
They grow up so fast! It is so amazing to watch and even more amazing to experience. I love this child. She has so much spunk! I wrote this post to her in late June. That still sums up this girl for now. I am so super excited to see what this 11th year has in store for her. Love you, Lex! :) xoxo
