Happy Birthday Olive!

Olive turned 9 yesterday!

We had the best weekend celebrating her with family and friends.  Stay tuned for a full pastel party recap or two later this week.

9 Favorite Things About Olive:

1. I love that Olive loves to craft.  She wants to do arts and crafts all the time and is always eager to learn something new.  She's headed to art camp this Summer hoping to learn some new things.  My mom taught her how to crochet.  She's mastering her first stitch and eager to learn the others.

2. Dad loves that Olive loves to read and that she has started to love coffee.

3. Fletcher loves to play with Olive.  They have great adventures and usually have the best time playing together.

4. Leo loves that Olive is always looking out for him.  She will sit and snuggle him and make sure he's taken care of.  She's a sweet big sis.  She regularly says she wishes she could freeze time to keep Leo little.

5. She loves all the cinnamon, caramel or spice flavors.  Snickerdoodles, pumpkin, PSLs, carrot cake, ginger snaps and any pumpkin treat is her favorite.  Fall flavors are the best flavors in her book.

6. She gets chattier with age.  She loves to talk, has good stories and has a great imagination.

7. Self care tasks are her favorite - DIY manicures and pedicures, fun hair tools, spa days and massages are her dream.

8. She tells everyone she wants to be a teacher when she grows up.  She loves to read, loves school and loves to learn so I wouldn't be surprised if this comes true.  Her teachers often call her a leader, the perfect student and the hardest worker.  She won the Goal Setter award at the end of the year.

9. Olive filled her birthday wish list with Barbies and Squishmallows.  She warned us that this might be her last year asking for toys and it made me extra sentimental.  She was thrilled to get new Barbies, a Barbie RV and lots of fun Barbie babies.

We love you, Olive!
