Happy Birthday Mouse!

Exactly 12 years ago today (at 1:19 pm to be precise) I gave birth to the sweetest little blonde baby girl - Nikki Marie! I can't believe so much time has gone by. I also can't believe how much she's already experienced in her short 12 years & how she handles everything with absolute grace!

We are snowed in, so we won't be going to a movie and dinner; we'll have to do that once we dig out or the snow melts. However, her party was this past Sunday (Valetine's Day) at Lazer Kraze. She had a great time and spent the day with amazing friends!

Alexis was able to join Nikki for her party and that was very special. It also gave Bryan and I some extra time with Troy & Andrea (Alexis' mom & dad) who we love dearly. In case I'm losing you: Alexis was diagnosed about 3 weeks ago with T1. Troy is one of my husband's closest friends and, as it happens, our family doctor. He's also the one who diagnosed my Nikki almost 7 years ago.

It was a great party for many different reasons!

However, the party didn't end at Lazer Kraze, we continued it at our house: sleepover! Nikki's only gift request this year was The Beatles' Rock Band. Yep, she's a Beatles' fan! I find that hysterical, but no complaining because its music I can actually enjoy with her!

We will add this birthday to our list of blessings! Happy Birthday Miss Mouse - you make us so very proud!

12! They grow up fast, huh?

Sounds like a good time was had by all. Lots of activities to do in those pictures, I'll bet blood sugars were rockin for both girls!

Happy Birthday!
