We are living hard between March and May around here.
Why you ask?
Well, Em's birthday is in March and Lizzie's is not until May!
For almost an entire 2 months, Em is older than Lizzie and that just will not do y'all!
No, no, no!
May cannot come fast enough for our Lizzie May and when that glorious day arrives and we have our virtual twins again, all is right with the world...
well, until September arrives and Em informs Lizzie that she is now 7 1/2.
But for now, we are good and this year as every year, Lizzie asked to have a pool party at JuJu's house...
and JuJu was more than happy to oblige.
This year, however, we also made a trip down to my brother's farm
What an awesome place this is!
Complete with horses
and purple track hoes...
and as always, the kids had a great time.
We ended the day with more swimming
and ice cream cake
and what was the best thing about Lizzie's birthday - according to Lizzie?
The devotional book we gave her!
Jesus Calling for Kids by Sarah Young!!
I really cannot believe that my sweet Lizzie is 7 years old!
This child may be little in statue but she is large in spirit
and compassion for others
and I cannot imagine our lives without her.
She has grown me and taught me so much about love and life, true strength and courage...
and she is only 7
Sweet, awesome Lizzie, we love you baby girl!
Happy, Happy Birthday and remember that when you are 39 and Em is 40...
you will appreciate being 2 whole months younger!
