My Best Seven Years — Happy Birthday Tanner!

July 7, 2010

Tomorrow, Tanner will be 7 years old. Impossible. Though the last year has been rough, I still wouldn’t trade it for the world. Any year spent with my family is a year worth living.

We’re planning on swimming in the morning and getting home in time for E. (John’s Mom) and Charlotte (her best friend and honorary Aunt) to come, bearing gifts and well wishes. Then, Tanner wants to make homemade pizza and make another attempt at firefly catching. We’ll invite a few neighbors over for cupcakes and to join in on the fun.

Her birthday party is on Saturday night… it’s a rock star party. I’ve been up late at night cutting out cardboard guitars for the girls to decorate.

Send her a birthday message, if you think of it. It would make her day to get lots of messages.

  1. Happy Birthday Tanner!!! We are so happy that your real birthday present (Domino) has joined your family!! We hope you have a super day, and that you get plenty of really loud musical instruments to play at home – maybe drums for Jake, and a huge electric guitar for you!! Your mom and dad will love it ( and they’ll love us for suggesting it! ).

    Enjoy your special day,

    With love,

    The Worrells
