6 Blessed Years!

Our St. Patrick's Day Eve birthday girl, Ariel, is turning 6 tomorrow.  Where has the time gone?  Our sweet spunky monkey, our biggest baby (who weighed in at 9 pounds 9 ounces) is now a Kindergartener with a joy that is truly contagious.  She's always willing to lend a hand.  She LOVES to talk.  She has the cutest giggles!  She is also good at bossing and screeching.  Here's a look at her last 6 years and how much she's changed and grown....

6 YEARS OLD (actually minus one day - the pic was taken the day before she turned 6)

**As a side note, I admit that I am not the perfect cake decorator lady, as most of my cakes are fairly simple (box mix and baked in a plain 9x13 pan with maybe a touch of color added to the canned frosting) or even store-bought, but the smile on Ariel's face says it all...  it's not about how fancy your mom makes your cake.  It's all about being loved and I think we can all agree, the love and joy is just radiating from her in these pictures. 

(Pictures will follow soon from her circus-themed cousin party and family party!!)

Happy birthday, Ariel!!  
Your smile and joy come directly from the heart of God and remind me on a daily basis that I am loved by Him!
May God continue to shower you with His graces 
and love over the next year!  
We love you sweetie!!!!!
