Yesterday my baby turned 10. 10!!! And we had a wonderful day, start to finish.
I love my daughters birthdays. Such a happy day for me, reminding me of how blessed I am to be their mama.
I surprised Abigail with a new dress to wear to school on her big day.
With sweet little birds on it. Perfect Abigail dress.
And the very unusual weather called for crazy high temps so up in a bun her hair went.
A few before school pictures of my little girl. She's always willing.
I am quite convinced that Abigail will be twirling in her wedding dress someday.
She's a twirler.
I love the spring in our backyard. The grass so green and the tree leaves so welcoming after a long winter.
I picked up Abigail early from school. The heat was unbearable yesterday, so we came home and I read books to her. (and got her a Belle balloon... right now her favorite princess)
We listened to songs like this and this and this and this while I cooked... and danced around the kitchen.
She wrote in her diary (because you just HAVE to write in your diary ON your birthday)
Daddy came home and the "party" started.
She had her all time favorite dinner, chicken pot pie
And then we headed to the patio for cake and opening presents.
Abigail's face. She adores her sister.
Isn't there something you just love to capture with each of your children? For me, with Abigail, it's her faces. Of silliness, of delight, of love.
Be still my heart.
A minnie mouse pandora charm (and eyes that sparkle when she opens presents)
The face of a ten year old opening an American Girl doll box.
I don't care how overpriced they are, some things (like the joy on her face) are worth it.
I think I should sell this one to American Girl.
Minnie Mouse and a Hawaiian theme? What could be better for a trip this summer to the Polynesian? That little girl needed jammies!
Anna picked out a fun girl too.
Time to officially turn 10! And eat cake!
We have a little girl party coming next weekend (and grandparents party too). I am looking forward to more celebrating with this not so little, little girl of mine. Oh I love her so.
