Phoebe's Surprise!

Today is Phoebe's 8th birthday and I surprised her this morning with a Mom and daughter morning out. I took her to the mall (where she thought we were going to Build-a-Bear) and took her to get her ears pierced! She was soooooo excited! She has been begging me to let her get them pierced for over a year now and I just kept acting like I was never going to let it happen. She really never thought I was going to take her, because I had been telling her that when she could keep her room organized then I would take her to get her ears pierced. Her eyes were soo excited when I told her what we were going to do; I think she didn't really believe me at first. She kept saying, "Is this a dream?" and a permanent grin was glued on her face. I love how happy she is. She keeps saying "thank you, thank you, thank you, a million thank you's!"

So cute. We have been talking about this at our house for a whole year. Only a about 7 weeks left for Ali. She has been saying that we will get a babysitter for the boys and she will have a special day out with Brad and I and she will get her ears pierced and we will go to dinner. Brad has the 8 yr old rule and he keeps thinking about just one day taking her to "run errands" and get them early. But we will wait til Sept. Yeah, Happy Birthday Phoebe!!!

Addyson has been terrified to turn 8 because Dave and I have been telling her she could get her ears pierced when she turns 8 and she thought that she had to do it! Pheobe looks great with earrings!
