Sadly, Daddy is the only one who bagged a bird (only because I wasn't there to shoot it first- seriously, there's been precedent. Ask him about the last time we went dove hunting :)
Look how happy my sweet girl is:
Jackson: How about we get lots of gifts because God has given us many gifts...
Outsmarted by a 9 year old. Won't be the last time I'm afraid!

Ashton: We talked about Moses, bu they didn't teach me about the name of God. I know it though.
Me: You do know it?
Ashton: Yeah, it's Yahoo.
Me: (giggling hysterically) I think you mean Yahweh!
Love her, and it was fairly close for a 7 year old :)

Poor middle child really does get the shaft a lot so it does my heart good to do something special for her. Besides, she's very appreciative:
Didn't it come out beautiful? The best addition was her own desk since she's always doing art when she's supposed to be sleeping :)
Everyone loves her new room. Some people even sneak out of their own beds giving their moms who can't find them a heart attack while they sleep peacefully in new turquoise sheets :)

When I pitched the idea to her she was so excited. So we began some fun planning. The colors obviously had to be pink and turquoise since that's what she's all about these days.
I even got to pull my Old Country Rose wedding china out of hiding:
I bought the tulle and the centerpiece, but everything else my Grandmother had in her never ending collection of antiques. It was fun going through all her stuff and planning everything.
This was the most fun part. While digging through Grandmother's china hutch I found all these old flowers Donnie made for my wedding. They actually held bird seed that people flung at us :)
I put them in her vases and they looked great. It was neat to put such a sentimental decoration out at my girl's party :)
At their place each girl found water with floating flowers and a goodie bag. Donnie made them each a Coke top necklace with their initials in them. They were so cute. I wish I had taken a picture, but you can see them daily on Ashton!
Mia hitched a ride because it wouldn't be the perfect party without her:
I heart this shot of all these beauties. I thank God for these lovely inside and out girls who are such a blessing to my girl's life. My fervent prayer is that she will always have such godly, sweet friends who lift her up- hopefully, she'll still have these exact same ones!
What a fun day. I wish Girl's birthday came along more than once a year! Anyone notice besides throwing an awesome tea party I also dodged the sleepover bullet? Yeah, I rock!
