We celebrated our girl's birthday all.weekend.long.  And it has been GREAT!
Happy Birthday sweet girl!  You are our greatest blessing and we love you so much!

We feel so privileged to be her parents and have the opportunity to guide her as she grows.  It amazes me at the little girl she is becoming and the baby she is leaving behind.  It is so bittersweet.  She'll always always always be my baby but she is developing such a fun little girl personality!  She is JOY!  She is talkative!  She is happy and kind and a bit of a tornado!  She is silly!  She is sensitive.  She is noisy and she is shy.  She is our girl and we love her so much!
Enjoy the pictures of all the partying!
Having cupcakes with all of our neighborhood friends!  A yummy mess!
Swimming with Daddy!
Enjoying a little pizza and fruit with Mommy!


  1. Happy Birthday, Little Lady!

  2. Dear miss manalie, can you please be in charge of all my birthday parties. My mom can give you a budget, that you will not adhere to, but the party will be fantastic. I loved every bit of joy's party. My favorite was the juice box that you won't let joy have (it's okay, my mom will sneak them to her when she plays at my house) . Mom's fav was clearly the pizza. Did you see how much that woman ate??. Anyways, happy birthday to my BFF. I love her. And you too.

  3. She is SO precious! Looks like a wonderful birthday celebration. You have the cutest little family! :)


I love reading your kind words...
