Alicia is 7!

We had lots of fun with Alicia's birthday this year. On her actual birthday October 17th it was just the family. We had lots of fun! She got a Barbie, the movie High School Musical, and lots of new clothes and shoes. She decided to have Chicken Cordon Bleu for dinner which is her favorite.

Aunt Chris helped us make these cool party invitations. So on Friday, we had 14 kids at a fun cowgirl party. Aunt Chris stayed and helped (the only way I made it through). We had a relay race, shooting gallery, roped our rootbeer bottles, opened presents, had a cowgirl dinner, played Rattle Snake Rope, a snake version on Hot Potato, then at the end we had a Round-Up (my neighbor hid over 50 bead necklaces in the front yard for them to find). Alicia had so much fun!

Then on Sunday we were able to have the family come for cake and ice cream. Grant, Sandra, Dionne, Phil, Christine, and Elizabeth were able to come. It was a lot of fun. Grandma and Grandpa Cannon Gave her some new boots(which she wears all the time), a notebook and pen, and a new outfit. Grandpa and Granny Halverson gave her lots of nice clothes, a doll, and a knitting machine. Chris and Elizabeth (and Greg) gave her a picture of her in her cowgirl clothes(she took this to school to be displayed all week).

We are so proud of Alicia and can barely believe she is already 7. Time just flies by.
