My girl turned 6!

Our oldest is now six years old! (Six and a half actually but the pictures are from her birthday) She is a sweet yet feisty little thing and we love her so much! We were able to have multiple days of celebration due to a trip to Nebraska the day after her birthday. 

The day of her party was also a Sunday so she chose this dress for church. It was given to us by our friend, Carol, when she returned from Hawaii last Christmas. 

Presents from us: bluetooth speaker - for using with my old ipod; and an ESV children's Bible

She wanted a chocolate cake with pink frosting and sprinkles. We went with box cake and can strawberry frosting and it was delicious! 

Little friends at her "Art Party" They each painted a picture of our tractor (or whatever they wanted) to take home. 

Our friend, "Miss Kris" as we call her, helped the kids know what to paint and good techniques to use. It was fun. 

Lots of little friends were able to come and we had a great time.

Everyone wanted to help open presents.

After most of the friends had gone home, J decided to teach the fine art of holding a chicken to her friend. 
The day of her party was the most movement I had done since my ACL reconstruction the month before. Yes, that is 17 flights of stairs! Topped this distance a few days later while packing and cleaning for our trip to NE.

The first of two Birthday cakes in NE at Aunt Lori's home

2nd Birthday cake with more relatives to share it with. 
Fun celebration at Aunt Lori's house in Scottsbluff. Ice Cream cake and six candles!
We love being able to stay with Aunt Lori, she opens her home to any and all visitors while we are there.
The girl had a great birthday and we are so blessed to have had her in our family these past six years. I pray we will have many more and be able to watch and teach her as she grows to love God and love others.
