Getting dressed in her fancy birthday get-up (thanks Uncle John & Aunt Heather!):
When's the party starting?
Bella is here!
Sweet cousins (bffs):
Failed family shot:
Megan came, dressed in her rock star tutu!
Cousin Luke arrived!
Bella, in usual style, made lots of faces.
The cake arrived; Elijah knew what that meant.
I'm the most excited (either about my daughter being one or about eating the delicious strawberry cake, I can't remember).
Haven takes a swipe:
"What IS this stuff???"
Bella gives me the evil eye for giving Haven the first piece.
The cake was a big hit, but this is what happened when we took it away: Mombo loves her little grandgirls!
Sweet, sweet, sweet baby girl!!! I love those little lips!
Luke is having a great time with Uncle Eric~:-)
Hooray, a poofy dress!
A hat for the beach, which Elijah immediately swiped. "It's my hunting hat, Momma!"
Do you see his gun? He's going hunting.
Haven loves her Grampa ("Poppa")!
Bella tries to make a new friend, but probably just gave Jason the evil eye.
Haven loves her Grammie ("Mammy") too!
Look! Now I'm big enough to reach the piano keys!
Happy Birthday Girl!
We are so thankful God gave us dear Haven! She has been such a cheerful, easygoing, little delight to me this past year. I pray that God will make her love Him, continue to give her a cheerful disposition, and make her a place of refuge to others.
Thanks to the Kirby's, Dodds, Graves, McKinleys, and Mombo for coming to help us celebrate the end of Haven Elizabeth's first year!
