I asked my Hanna what she wanted to do for her birthday this year. We have always had big parties. Last year was her last big party after she turned 8. So this year I told her she could pick four friends and do something small. She chose to go to Build-A-Bear Workshop with her four friends and two sisters.
I always hope my children will pick good kids to be friends with like it says in the Gospel Standards. Hanna has picked good friends which is comforting to me. It is nice that they all have the same values and beliefs that Hanna is being raised with. As I drove I listened to what they were talking about and it was so cute listening to a bunch of 8 & 9 year old girls talk. I heard "I wish John McCain won" "yeah me too". I thought that was so funny because I am not political at all I vote because I have to and these cute girls totally were into the election. Then they were telling each other silly scary stories. Then I would hear "was that a true story". They are still so innocent but grown up at the same time. I am thankful for friends that are raising their kids the same way I am and have good standards set for their children. It really is a blessing to me.

Happy Birthday my Hanna Baby. I love you to the moon and back forever and ever. You are part of what I live for.
This is my sweet stuff. I love watching my children enjoy life and have fun. I always want to be a part of that and will try to give them all I can for the rest of my existence.
