My baby girl turned six!!!
It was hard for me to allow this birthday. ;)
The shirt she is wearing sums her up perfectly, it says, "Though she be but little, she is fierce!" So very true. :) She is an adorable force to be reckoned with!
Opening presents from the brothers. :) She was so thoughtful and sweet and thankful for every little thing. Also her grandpa brought over the doll, since named Jack, and she is in love with her baby. Such a little mommy.
For her dinner she picked a spinach salad with strawberries, crumbly cheese, and candied pecans, and noodles in a home made creamy mushroom sauce with little shrimps. What six year old picks such things? Ha ha!
For her birthday treat, chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. And I am not kidding! She chose chocolate ice-cream topped with a mint patty and chocolate chips. Oh and mint leaves on top. So fancy! ;)
She is crazy for the chocolate!
This year was a big deal as far as birthdays go. It was her golden birthday. :) She turned six on the sixth. So we threw her a golden birthday party. She was so excited, for months before hand! Her auntie is good at decorating and had some golden supplies on hand, so she came over and helped decorate. She did an amazing job and the party was fantastic!
The weather ended up taking a turn for the worst so I had to squeeze a whole heck of a lot of people into my house! Also some how I didn't buy enough of the masks for our craft project and so my sweet mom ran to the store on short notice to grab some more. I have the most wonderful people in my life. :)
I wish I had thought to take some pictures of Leiella in her golden dress before the party started. With her hair all curled up. She was something else!!! Super fancy! :) This is the only picture I can post, for privacy reasons. You conveniently can't tell who this kid is because of the awesome mask he made, unless you know him, in that case he is unmistakable, unforgettable and uniquely him. :) They have been best friends since they were little itty-bitty babies!
So there you have it. A golden birthday. A baby girl a year older. It's so hard for me to wrap my brain around my youngest being six! This has all been so exciting and although it's hard to say good bye to the littler years, I love seeing what she is becoming and I'm thrilled to see what is yet to come! Although I wouldn't mind if it all slowed down a little bit!
