Josie's Turns 9


Josie turned nine the other day.  Happy Birthday, Josie!

She started her birthday the way that we always do here in Elliotland - an early morningwake-up call and presents opened in front of a sleepy audience.

This year's audience included her father, since Josie's birthday conveniently fell on a weekend and on a day without a super-early hockey game.


Georgia also joined in as a witness....


but sadly, Henry did not.  The lack of that early-morning hockey game meant that Henry could get a rare morning to sleep in and that was what he was doing while Josie was gleefully opening her gifts.

And boy did Josie get some great gifts.  She got a Lego Friends set from Grandma and Grandpa:


She opened many sweet cards from relatives:


She got a ring from Elsie:


And a sparkly tote from The Southerns:


She also got a hockey charm for her charm bracelet from Granny and Grandfather, a beautiful necklace from Our Philly Family and some great hairbands, a picture frame and a photo album from Zach & Ned:


Which was pretty appropriate considering that Gordy and I gave her a polaroid camera:


Josie had a busy birthday - she had both a soccer game and a hockey game, but there was time in between to watch the clock and witness the exact moment that she was born.

Here is a photo of Josephine, still eight years old at 11:32am:


And here is Josephine, a whole year older at at 11:33am:


I can see the difference, can't you?
