Our birthday girl

May 6th, 2005 was one of the best days of my life!
It was the day we found out we had a girl and were blessed to meet our new daughter:
Brooke Ryan.
Today we celebrated her 6th birthday...
(*she had a big birthday party last weekend...more to come on that fun celebration. I promise!)
But for now, here is today's birthday in a nutshell!
Rise and shine. Bright and early.
Birthday girl,
we have a busy day filled with celebrating!
But first things first: presents!

This little girl was so excited about getting new roller blades
(or as she sometimes slips up and calls them "bey blades"
...can you tell she has a big brother?)
She just had to try them out...
in the kitchen...
at 7:00 in the morning!!!
It was also "Muffins with Mom" day at their school.
So we left the house at 7:30am to have muffins in honor of mother's day.
We brought in snacks and treats for Brooke's classroom and later that day Mommy brought her a special birthday lunch from Subway :)
Daddy surprised the kids and picked them up early from school and took them to get ice cream and to go swimming...
Then we went to the restaurant of Brooke's choice:
American Pie Company!
(fully equipped with a pizza buffet and arcade)
After dinner we played outside...
went for a ride on Brayden's new motorbike...
and tested out the blades...
had cake and icecream

and played her new Wii game
(even berlyn got in on the dance)
Which left just enough time to get measured...
and fall fast asleep.
And that's a day in the life of a newly crowned 6 year old.
We love you sweet girl.
Praying your life is one that is full of joy
and your heart is one that is full of Jesus.
Happy happy birthday
to you!
