My Birthday - written by The Magster

My birthday is coming up soon! I'm going to get a lot of presents! My birthday is on Valentine's Day. We are going to Charleston for a sleepover with my friend, Emma, and then when we are done and all up and dressed we are going to go from Charleston to my grandparents' beach house. And it'll be cold, but they have an indoor pool where we can swim.

I'm going to be 8 years old and I've had a stuffed animal named Num Num ever since I was born. My great aunt Judy gave her to me. She is kinda pink, has a heart that is kinda ripped on the top, and two ears that I like to move my fingers up and down on. That's called numming. My Dad made up the name "Num Num" because when I was little and I would get hungry I would make that sound with my mouth and they would know I wanted a bottle. Ok...back to the birthday...

This past weekend I made a cake with my grandma, Nonnie. It was red velvet with chocolate icing and white chocolate dribbles. It tasted DEEELICIOUS. My mom's been eating it ever since. Some things that I want for my birthday are jazz shoes, a fushigi ball, and Mad Libs.
Those are just some of the things I want. I can't list all of them because I gotta go to bed.

The best thing about being 7 was: "First and second grade"
The thing I'm most looking forward to about being 8: "Being 5 years older than Zoe and Tori, until they are 4"

I can't wait for y'all to get to the beach this weekend, Maggie!! The cake you made with Nonnie sounds AMAZING! If Mama doesn't eat it all, stick some in the freezer so I can taste it. What a description or "numming"! I can just see you as a little thing pursing up those lips and making that noise! I love you, and those MUCH younger twins a million!

Oh, wow--I am sooo proud to be mentioned in the birthday post! So glad that Num Num has been so special for Maggie! Addie & Harper have "yonnies" and you can bet that yonnie is the first thing they call for if they get hurt or upset--of course, Banks could not care less if he ever saw his again! Kelly worked so hard after he was born to always have it in his crib, carseat, etc.--but he would much prefer to have a fire truck or car to hold on to!!! Love you--happy birthday to Maggie on the 14th!!!

Happy Birthday, Maggie. I am so glad we saw you at Christmas because now I can imagine you as an 8 year old! You are going to have such a wonderful and special birthday! WOW.
Maggie, your story was wonderfully written! Are you sure you are going to be just 8? I have some 10 years old students that can't write as well as you! You go, girl!!
Hugs to you and little 3 year old hugs to your sisters.
Great Aunt Susan
