Olivia turns 9!

Can you believe Livy Do (we also like to call her Liver or O-yiv-ia as Ella says) is 9 years old?!?!

She quickly figured out that her actual birthday would fall on Monday, a school day, and decided that it wasn't fair that most of her day would be spent at school, so she decided it only made sense that we should celebrate on Sunday.  So we did :-)

After opening a few birthday presents in her pjs, we headed to the movie theater.  We were all so excited to see Muppets Most Wanted!

We then headed to our usual birthday stop - Dave and Buster's!  The kids spent most of the time at the one game... the claw.  They are OBSESSED with winning jewelry.  They get so excited when they win and wear their treasures so proudly!  Olivia won a huge ring, Caleb won earrings that he kindly gave to me... all in all, I think they walked away with 15 pieces of fine jewelry!

After playing at Dave and Buster's, we headed over to Gramma (Gramma is doing very well cruising around her house with her walker) and Papa's house to open the rest of Olivia's gifts and eat Oreo cake. 

A few weeks ago we bought Olivia a HUGE stuffed puppy and have had it hiding in a closet at Gramma and Papa's house.  Caleb and Ella were with me when we bought it and never spilled the beans to Olivia. Ella was so excited to finally surprise her with it!

This picture is a perfect example of the kids.  Caleb is trying to blow out Olivia's candles, Olivia is giving Caleb her look and Ella is laughing away.

I am pretty sure Olivia had a great early-ish birthday!  On Monday, we took puppy cupcakes to school and she spent the rest of the day playing with her new Lego sets and Barbies!

Happy 9th Birthday Miss Olivia!!!!!!!!!


  1. I love the huge stuffed dog! How lucky Olivia is to get that for a present! The next time I am in Texas I want to go to Dave and Buster's, it looks like lots of fun! I can't believe Olivia is nine already. She is getting so grown up. What a special birthday she had.
    Isn't Jordie cute with the birthday bow on!

  2. What a special, wonderful Birthday for such a special, wonderful girl!!! I wish I could have been more part of the day but it was so sweet she brought over cake and presents so I could be part of the day too!! Happy Happy Birthday Olivia--we love you so much!!!!
