Our sweet birthday girl, in pictures

Sunday, October 18, 2009

We had such a great time celebrating Grace's birthday. She was so sweet and excited. She kept saying, "I five. I five." What a little cutie-pie. She is truly a gift from God--His grace, abundantly poured out upon us!!
Here's our little sweetie, stirring up the batter for her cupcakes.
On the morning of her birthday, Daddy went out to buy doughnuts. Grace sure liked the pink frosting. The actual doughnut...well, no. She had a couple of bites anyway!

Sweet brother Adam, bought Grace some gum. This was the ONLY thing that she requested for her birthday.

Jadon thought that Grace needed a sword for all of that serious combat that she's been engaged in!

Grandma and Grandpa sent Grace a beautiful princess dress. She loves it! Opa, Oma and Grammy came up for the day. Here is Grace and Opa.

We invited a few friends over to decorate their own cupcakes. Fun, fun, fun!

Grace loves the park, so we all walked over for a little swinging time.

Fun on the teeter-totter.

Dad and Jade have to get in on the fun!
On the day after Grace's birthday, we met three friends and their moms for a sweet time of playing and fellowship at a local "tot gym." Here are Grace and Rachel, about to take the plunge!

Sweet Sophia. Don't you just LOVE those cheeks!

Grace had a fabulous time!

Addie, Grace and Rachel going out for a drive. This was, by far, their favorite activity of the day.

These three girls had a blast together.

Addie, and her momma. Just beautiful.

We were so blessed to spend this special day with our precious little girl. I'm thinking today of all of the little ones who have never had anyone celebrate their birthdays. So many special little gifts, waiting to be discovered! Jesus has not forgotten them. May He hold them tightly in His arms, and may many more find their forever families this year, so that next year they can spend their birthdays within the families who love them.
