Happy Birthday Gracie!!!

My Sweet Gracie Mae! She is 6 years old today. We have been through a lot together. She was with me in OT school, when Chris and I get married (a BIG change for her), when Madeline was born and when we got Gabbie. Together she and I have moved 3 times. She was also in a bad car wreck with me in OT school. She was ejected from the vehicle, but was okay! Needless to say, she doesn't like to car ride anymore! She is such a good girl.

Retired

We have officially put away the Baby Einstein play center. She loved it for two years,8 months!!!
