Another birthday for our family. The fall is so full with birthdays! Our little princess had her 6th birthday. Truly, it doesn't seem like she is 6 years old. Some of that is just the natural passing of time where things just seem to go more quickly the more years you have under your belt. The other is that she truly doesn't seem like a 6 year old. Still young in so many ways, not the least of which is her tiny size. More than made up for by her huge smile!
We ate some of her favorite foods. Pancakes for breakfast. Tacos for lunch. All with the red plate! Oh, and gluten free pizza (homemade!) for dinner.
In the evening it was time for opening gifts.
Not sure why this year she didn't want to blow them out. We encouraged. Tried to help. Cheered her on. Yet, she resisted.
Eliana, I thank God for you every day! I'm so glad that He gave you to our family! You bring laughter and love and soooo many hugs! I love watching you learn and grow. You have taught me so many things. Things I didn't realize that I needed to learn. I know that God has a great plan in store for you and for our family too. I love you precious girl!
