Happy Number 7 Stella!!

I can not believe that you are 7 today! It seems like just the other day you were a baby in my arms wanting to be rocked and held. You are growing up way to fast, ready to run and spread your wings, it is a challenging thing as a parent to watch but a beautiful thing at the same time. Stella, you can make me want to pull out my hair at moments but I would never change anything about you. Stella, you are strong, smart, caring, understanding, loving, take charge, rule the world kind of girl, I would not want it any other way. I know with each year that passes that you are going to do great things with the life that God has given you. Stella, your smile lights up the room, your tears break our hearts, you laughter fills our hearts with happiness, your helpfulness brings warmth to cold days, your sassy attitude makes us grit our teeth, you bring a special something to our family that makes it complete. I hope you will always remember that in this world you can do anything you want but always remember to be yourself.

"She is clothed in strength and dignity and she laughs with out fear of the future." Proverbs 31:25

I have to say that this verse fits you to the letter. You have a strength and grace about you that at 35 I only dream of having, I hope that never changes. I love you with my whole heart, princess.

Stella's 7th Birthday Party

We had Stella's 7th Birthday party a couple days before her actual birthday. It was at a local art studio that caters to kids. Stella invited a couple of girls from her class at school and her cousins. Stella was so excited to see her friends from school that she had not seen in a couple of weeks. Each child got to paint a purse to take home with them. I think that they all had a good time. Happy Birthday Stella!

Last Day

I can not believe that the last day of Kindergarten is already here! Stella has had a really good year and made so many new friends and learned so much. We are so proud of her and all that she has accomplished this year!
