We had a party for her, my mom, and my nephew Colton, who all have a birthday during the same week, on Saturday night. These first pictures are from that gathering:
Amanda made such a cute cake for Colton and Dominique, and a more sophisticated one for Mom.
Suzy’s sister and family have been in the Ukraine as missionaries since May of this year, and are now home to renew visas. So, Ollie, her brother-in-law, was able to be with us for the party, which was really nice!
Israel and Moriah. Boy, is it hard to get a picture of them together at the ages they are at! Israel is 10 months and Moriah is 6 months old.
These next few pictures are from today, her actual birthday. We decided a little while ago that we would take her to get her ears pierced for her birthday. So here we are! I have been talking it up for the last month and she was SOOOO excited!
She covered her other ear!
But a lollipop made it all better in no time flat!
And ice cream helped even further!
Now she has forgotten the pain and is SO excited to be a “princess” with earrings!
Grandma Carol went with us to the mall to have it done and treat us to ice cream / Starbucks.
Joshua got to enjoy the birthday festivities too!
