Happy Birthday our beautiful 7 year old...

This past Wednesday our little girl celebrated her 7 year old birthday. She wanted a princess party (which thankfully she has wanted for the past several years...I'm all for reusing party stuff). She picked a "spring cake" with flowers and butterflies and it was delicious - thank you Betty Crocker.

She was allowed to open one present in the morning (without Daddy being around) and that one was from Grandmom...it was perfect. It was markers and stickers - what more could she ask for? Except having Grandmom there...but the good news is that she is coming soon for a visit.

Daddy came home as early as he could and then it was a present free for all. She loved them all. At the end of the evening we enjoyed cake and ice cream...yes, it was a great day! Happy Birthday our beautiful little girl...

I am reminded that blessings come in all forms...even raindrops
