Molly chose a luau theme for her birthday party this year.

She looked so cute in her batik sarong, and pink lei.
What a beautiful island girl!

Nine candles on the cake this year! They grow up so quickly, don't they?

Sometimes I feel a little ache in my heart, when I realize that her thumbs are stuck into her pockets, instead of her mouth.

A more mature look , for sure! I sigh, and bemoan the fact that she's growing up too fast.

Then, in the blink of an eye...........she's a child again.

She's fond of glasses, but her eyesight is 20/20. What's a girl to do?

Well, you save your allowance, and buy yourself a pair of sassy pink rims with plain glass.
Who knew?

She's a wonderful nine year old, with a magnetic personality, that everyone flocks to.

Have a wonderful weekend,


Many thanks to Beverly for hosting PINK SATURDAY. Visit her at How Sweet The Sound for links to more pink posts.

Aaawww how sweet. Children has that. One day you see them so small and just babies and then the next . . . they're grown up. So what's any parent to do but just cherish the moments! Oh I don't have kids yet but I see them through my nephews and nieces :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

I think Molly is delightful! And, she's matured just since I've been reading your blog. She has the sweetest smile and always, always looks happy! Happy birthday, Molly!

Oh Kay!
She is absolutely beautiful. My 12 year old grand daughter just had a luau birthday party, done in red, white and blue (her favorite colors). We even put up a limbo game for them to limbo, in between jumps in the pool. I bought them grass skirts at Big Lots, and leighs, oh it was a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing your beautiful 9year old. I enjoyed visiting your BLOG. Please stop by mine and drop a line. Wednesday was my post about Destiny and it shows her new hair cut and her cake. I have had so much fun participating in PS. It is my first and I have had a blast. "Country Hugs" from Country Wings in Phoenix, Sherry

SHE is adorable!
Clear lenses in pink frames! Who would think of that!!!!
If she had to wear em, she probably wouldn't like them!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Kay. I've missed you.

Your little luau lady is a true beauty. I have a ten year old grandson, and I know how they hold our hearts.

So so cute your daughter is!!! Just love her pink glasses and I can see why so many "flock" to her! Charming!

Jillian said...

Wow, I just loved seeing Molly in all of her pictures and your wonderful narration. I have one baby daughter and just today she sat up by I am starting to understand when they hit those "milestones"...and I don't want her to grow up too fast!

Sweet girl.

Isn't this the perfect pink Saturday post? Molly is such a beauty and a bright personality, you can tell that even from the photos! Yes you are sooo right. It is all going to fast, one day they are babies, the other day they are using your make up. I want to emphasize though that every age of a darling daugher has its lovely sides. So enjoy, and have a lovely pink saturday!
