Seven!!!!!!!

Happy 7th Birthday to our beautiful girls! I cannot believe it has been seven years. It truly boggles my mind. Where has the time gone???

To celebrate we went on an overnight trip to Chicago and hit the American Girl Store. We also had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, saw a surprise performance of the Pinkalicious Musical, and went to the top of the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower - who knew?). Thank you to our wonderful family and friends who sent cards and birthday money to help make Holland and Eden's birthday wishes come true. It was all worth it to see their faces light up and to hear their squeals of excitement. It was so adorable to see Eden talking to her doll, showing her how to drive her power chair, and to see the look of pure joy on her face when people told her "Your doll looks just like you!" It made my heart so happy to hear Holland say with complete excitement, "This is the BEST day of MY LIFE!!!"

Holland reminded me today that I needed to put pictures on the blog and told me that I should write "This is the day that Holland and Eden got their very first American Girl Dolls." So here it is!

This is the day that Holland and Eden got their very first American Girl Dolls!

Happy Birthday to all! The dolls are great!

Maybe Holland and Eden can convince Eliza to trade in her cars and Pokemon figures for an American Girl doll? If not, I'm getting one for myself:)

Hi Billie! I'm the person who rushed up to you at The American Girl Doll store amazed to run into you in a town neither one of us are from. It was especially cool to introduce my former micro-preemie, Lily, to Holland and Eden. Your family was all very sweet and I really enjoyed meeting you. We also went up in the Willis Tower and gingerly stepped out onto the Skydeck. Hurray for Chicago adventures!
