Today, my Princess turns FIVE. A whole hand. When did this happen??

She loves giving hugs and good loving. She LOVES to watch TV, especially PJ Masks. She loves doing her chores so she can watch said TV. (Thanks Annah Mary, this has been a GAME CHANGER at our house).  She loves her sister even though they fight like sisters. A lot. In the car. She loves her Mama. Really, she loves everyone. That's one of the things I love most about her. She is kind and genuine to most all (except her sister at times).

She will eat donuts for every meal if you let her. Every.single.meal. Which we don't do. She's not a big meat eater but she will eat 3 packs of yogurt in one sitting. She loves her chocolate milk too and I hope it stays that way.

She LOVES school (except the whole sitting still thing). She is on GO all the time. I mean, ALL THE TIME. But when that head hits the pillow, OUT. Thankfully.  And she loves sleep and needs lots of it. Like her Daddy.

She can't wait to read and is allllll about AR tests. Which her sister is NOT so I'm thankful I have one kid that enjoys it. She would let you read every book in the house every night if we could. Every single book. Plus, she procrastinates bedtime like any good 5 year old does. Right??

She's so happy and loving and we are super blessed to be her parents. She was our answer to many prayers and completes our family. I can't wait to see what big plans God has in store for her.

Happy birthday baby girl!

Always, always, always silly!

1st Day of School

Today is a big day! It's the 1st day of school!!!  I think it's one of my favorite days of the year (because as a working mom, we don't really get much of a summer break, however, I will be super excited when May rolls around). This year is extra special as both of my girls will be at the same school, finally.

Here we are starting kindergarten and 4th grade. I'm not sure when that happened but I am really starting to love this age.

Big Sister gets up on her own and showers and mostly gets ready on her own. Little Sister is usually my hard one to get out of the bed. However, this awesome mom had made cinnamon cake last night so she jumped right out of bed at those words.

In the craziness of the day, I only got a few pics before we left home. No pics with the teachers yet, but I'll get them later. 

I can't wait to hear allllll about it this afternoon. I am sure one will talk my ear off more than the other.

Hoping all of our friends have a great year too.  My only hope for my girls is that they try their best and show love like Jesus.
