Miss Marinne is 9!

Has she changed at all? (Marinne's first day of kindergarten )

Marinne turned 9 on the 15th. The Friday before, we had a friend party which included 13 girls! We went swimming at Steven's then came home for pizza and manicures. The girls even got to dip their hands in parafin wax (hence the bags over their hands). Thanks to Melanie, Amy, and Kami for helping! I couldn't have handled the chaos alone! Marinne's friends thoroughly spoiled her with gifts and money to spend at the mall. I can't believe I am old enough to have a 9 year old! We love you Marinne!

Your kids are looking so grown up! Blake looks like a real boy, instead of a little kid. I hope you're having fun with all of the parties. The spa treatments look like fun. I'm sure we'll be having a few of those in years to come.

P.S. You'd better not be naming your babus Pat.

I hope I didn't start a rumor w/ the Pat thing... I was just referring to the current gender ambiguity. :)
