8th birthday for a big girl here!

1/11 is a special day at our home.  we have a beautiful girl who celebrates this day of her birth.  this year it is year numero 8 with us.  woop woop!

here's her amazing birthday dinner request:
  • pancakes poured over bacon (i'm not sure what they're called, but i saw it on pinterest and tried it -with otter pop's prodding- and we're hooked!)
  • eggs
  • corn, "on the side"
and, for cake?
  • angel cake!!!
i love this girl.  she's amazing in all sorts of ways.  she's very smart with a good God-centered moral.  she likes to see what others are doing before she chooses her choices.  she cares about others.  she's extremely competitive.  her favorite color is blue.  she likes deer and cheetahs.  she wants to be a mom and grandma when she grows up.  she has a natural talent at ice skating.  she is beautiful and likes to make others laugh.  she adores her siblings, mostly her big sister who she aspires to be like.  she enjoys horseback riding, long walks and talks.  her love language is words of affirmation and quality time (not in that order). 
i thank the lord for blessing me with her 8 years ago and still to this day.  what a treasure!

my amazing photo-eye captured this where it looks like she received a new pair of feet!!!

it's not really the case.  she actually got some new DS games...  you'll have to ignore the background.

jones was all dressed up for the special day.


more spectators...

"happy birthday to you...."

8 lit candles

8 blown out candles.

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
