Saturday continues.......and then Hopie was EIGHT YEARS OLD! I can't believe that precious little one is already 8! And growing up to be a little lady! It really seems like a couple of years ago we were finally bringing her home from the hospital, at last! We had her birthday party at Stars and Strikes (bowling and activities center in Dallas, Ga.) and it was definitely a hit for the kids and loud for the adults!! BUT...what Hopie wants...Hopie gets....thanks to Papa! We decided when the grandchildren came along that we would not buy birthday presents for the grandchildren but we would pay for their birthday parties. So whatever they decide to do for their celebration is what we give them as our gift. Happy Birthday Hope! We love you with all our hearts!
