It’s time for Ramsey’s five year stats and a questionnaire…so let’s get started!
First up, she’s 39 pounds and 43 inches tall. She’s in the 45th percentile for weight and the 60th percentile for height. She’s always been on the tall, skinny side.
Now the fun part….Ramsey’s favorites!
food: mac n’ cheese
dessert: cinnamon rolls
drink: orange juice
drink: pink Icee
person: Cousin Kiley
thing to do: go skating
tv show: Dora & Friends in the City
What do you want to be when you grow up? A teacher so I can put kids in time out.
Have you ever met those people who don’t know what to do with their arms in pictures? Yeah, this girl is definitely not that person. She always has a plan.
Until next year….

She sprang out of bed around 7 singing “Happy Birthday to ME!” Then promptly grabbed her new scooter and buzzed around the house while continuing to serenade herself. Yep, that pretty much describes life with Ramsey.
We had bacon and pancakes with candles atop for breakfast.
Oh Heavens chile, these two were some kinda cute that morning…
We dropped off Miss B and headed to school where I had a fellow teacher snap a pic of us…
Then we walked into my classroom and look what our school friends did---a card and money were hanging from the ceiling. It was so fun! She loved it!
That afternoon, Daddy D came to school during my plan time, we went to Ramsey’s classroom for a birthday celebration. Oh Lordy, Rams was cheesin’ it.
The kids sang to her while her teacher played the harp. She got to build a felt board cake, which she was so excited about…
She grabbed a goody from the birthday bag…
Then they read a birthday book…
Continuing Ramsey’s life theme of thinking outside the box, she turned down birthday cake, cupcakes, cookies, and cookie cake for push-ups, which we shopped for the night before.
Her teacher only does popsicle things outside so the class got a bonus recess out of the deal.
I can’t tell you how happy she was about leaving early with her dad. They picked up Brady and made a park pit stop.
She picked pizza and wings for dinner…to which we happily obliged.
Her Hurt grandparents came over and she opened presents ah-plenty.
Brady got a few things, too…
We had some more sugar---just what we needed…
We ended the day playing outside.
She said it was her best birthday ever.

Ramsey’s birthday fun continued Sunday morning when she decided to sport a cheerleading uniform for the day. I’m mean why not?
She loves the new scooter---we’re hoping it helps with her lack of balance and coordination. Ha!
My brother brought the other two-thirds of his kids and my dad came, too, for lunch and cake.
Daddy D hung a tree swing, which is super fun for all.
My nephew Mason….
Continuing our celebration of Ramsey’s favorites, we had mac n’ cheese, Doritos, and burgers for lunch.
All three girls baked a birthday cake that morning—lemon cake with lemon frosting. Yum.
My niece, Zoe, took all of these pictures. I’m impressed!
My nephew told us how all he ever wanted was a pie in the face. We made his wish come true.
Well, darn if we only had three birthday candles. We improvised with giant matches. Ha! No worries, I bought some real ones this evening for her actual birthday day celebration.
We kicked my family out and got all gussied up for cousin Halley’s Frozen party. Ramsey and Halley were born on the same day—just one year apart. We were so excited! My kids look a little frozen in this picture---ha! They were actually just totally into all the fun going on around them.
There was karaoke---and would you believe this quiet little angel got on stage?!?
They also had a fingernail painting station….
and lots and lots of eating…we all went into a sugar coma shortly after this.
I did an awful job taking pictures at the party---I didn’t even get one of the birthday girl! Geez. Guess I should bring Zoe with us next time.
Well, that concludes Ramsey’s pre-weekend birthday celebration.
