It was a three day event...


It started on Friday...

and ended on Sunday.


This three day extravaganza included...


yummy food...


funny family...

a cute little puppy...


and one very beautiful princess...

Yep, it was my sweet Maggie's (aka Princess Ariel's) birthday and we needed to celebrate!


So celebrate we did!


It all started Friday night when we loaded up the gang and headed out for some Chinese food! Y'all, this was the first time that all of us had gone out to eat since Maggie and Lucy came home, almost 2 years ago, and...


we got to include some really wonderful...



really sweet...



kinda crazy...


and always fun family!

The festivities continued on into Saturday when we got to play and swim and picnic by the pool...

and ended on Sunday with an ice cream cake and...

a very cute little puppy to play with...

Beautiful Maggie...

your journey has not always been easy...
sometimes, it has been down right hard...
scary hard...
as your story began long before we met you.

However, I know that the tragedy that began your life...

is known to the One who loves you with such a love...
My sweet one, He has claimed you as His own and with that, He has claimed your pain and your suffering and will continue to heal your broken heart and in that beautiful healing...
we are all healed...
and while we may not yet know exactly (or even approximately) how old you are...
we do know how well you love and how well you are loved.



And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:2
After all that you have been through, you are rich in love my precious one...

He protected that beautiful heart, that joyful spirit...
and that is the best gift of all.



Happy birthday my beautiful Maggie!
