Miss Frances is eight. It has a good ring to it! She woke to opening her presents....lots of soccer jerseys....got to go to Powells to spend a gift card...and then our nanny took her to Toys R Us to spend her bday money. My kids have never been in Toys R Us....report back was they were slightly overwhelmed. When I got home, we went to the Nike Employee Store and got new shoes, dinner -with a big burger - and we ended the night with a Timbers Game. One. Happy. Eight. Year. Old. It is impossible to not smile when you are around Frances. She is - simply put - FANTASTIC.
