Happy Birthday Lily!!!!

My sweet precious Lily is five years old today! I cannot believe my first baby is five years old, where has the time gone? She has blessed our lives in more ways than I could ever recount. She is a lovely person inside and out. Lily is very tender hearted, sweet, and caring. I love how she daily tells me she loves me (all day long, out of the blue), or how she'll come up to me and say "I didn't get a morning kiss Mom". She is a great big sis to Coop and I know she will be such a big helper with our new baby. We love you Lily and thank God every day that you are ours to hold and love.

We had to of course give Lily donuts with candles, just like Coop's birthday. She was so excited she blew them out before I could take a pic.

We gave Lily her present a few days early so she could enjoy it, we are going out of town this weekend. This was her cute expression when she first saw her bike.
Lily loves her new bike. She kisses it every morning before she goes to school. When we gave her the bike she kept saying, "This is the best day ever!"Although Lily loves her bike, she is pretty timid on it. She wants her daddy walking beside her at ALL times! She is getting braver everyday and we are so proud of her.
This pic makes me laugh because it describes my kiddos perfectly. I had Coop start off right beside Lily so I could take a pic of them together riding their new bikes. As you can see I was barely able to catch Coop in the pic because he zooms so fast and his sweet sister is cautiously riding her bike by her dad.

Happy Birthday my sweet princess!

On a sad note, Josh's grandfather passed away early this morning. Please pray for the Harrel family as they are preparing to say goodbye to their loved one.

Hooray! A new purple bike. That is great. I can't believe little Miss Lily is five. Love her Belle costume. She is my favorite Disney princess of all time. She's smart, loyal, loves her family and books! What could be better? Lily makes a beautiful Belle.
