Happy Birthday Mia!

Mia's day began bright and early as usual......7 am. After a bit of snuggling with mom and dad, she and daddy went out for a special date. You see, Mia had requested that for her birthday she would be able to go out with a grown up without any sisters. So, daddy took her for a donut and then to pick out her BRAND new bike! She was so excited!

We then had some lunch while I decorated her cake...Hello Kitty of course! Then it was off to the bowling alley for some fun memories. We had a blast bowling....Carrie only messed up the score keeping board like a million times, ran on all of their somewhat new seats and ran around and around the lockers. Fun stuff! We had a blast!

Then it was home to "Chuck E. Cheese". Mia and Maddie decorated the house with signs and streamers. We had pizza for dinner and played games...UNO and XBOX. Maddie made tickets for everyone and we got to take 2 after each game that we played. At the end of the evening we each got a prize.

She got 3 new Leapster games, a beautiful new dress and shiny shoes, a cute hat, a cheese puzzle (no really, it is shaped like cheese), a gumball machine and of course, her lovely new bike!

It was a super fun day and we are so thankful that we have our little Mia in our family. Such a cheery disposition, always singing and smiling. She is (almost) always willing to help and (usually) does so with a smile.

So, Happy 5th Birthday to my sweet baby girl...I am not sure that I am ready to let her grow up!

Mia Missing Papa and CC

WARNING! This post could cause a tear in your eye.

A few weeks ago, Mia found this picture inside of a book Carol and Riley had brought back from England a few years ago. She carried it around for days and days and would sleep with it, eat with it and for a few Sundays would say, "Mom, can I bring this book to church with me, I just CAN'T leave Papa and CC home by themselves, they would be lonely!"

Oh the sweetness of our Mia!
