Yesterday was Erica's 9th birthday!
She took treats of juice boxes and cheese and crackers to school for the students in her classroom. She did get to pick the restaurant that we went out to eat at for supper. Erica picked Taco John's to eat supper at. She loves their potato oles and tacos. She did get to pick out an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. Erica didn't want a traditional cake this year so instead she picked an ice cream cake. She did receive lots of cards in the mail with well wishes from family (She has been stalking the mail for the last week).
I do find it hard to believe that she is already 9 years old. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital. Erica was born the day before a snow storm (what OB doctors say about the barometric pressure change effecting labor probably is true). She is growing up before our eyes. Erica is known for being sneaky, but having a quick smile and a good sense of humor.
Happy 9th Birthday to our Erica! She may have already out grown her baby nickname of "pack of sugar".
