Sugar and Spice and Everything....Pink!









I know every mother says this or something like it every year, but even so, it must be said....


HOW IS IT POSSIBLE MY BABY IS SIX????


But it's true! Our Sweet Miss Emily is six years old today. And what a beautiful six she is! I am so glad she was born six whole years ago. What a treat she is! Anyone who knows her knows she has had a personality and a half since before she could speak. She knows her mind...and so does everyone else! She is so bright and smart. She is very sweet and kind...I still remember her toddling away from me at just over a year to comfort a much-older child at the park who had fallen and hurt himself. She had real concern on her tiny face and pushed past the child's mother to try to hug him!


Here she is this morning at the breakfast table. Now Grammy (my Mama), if you're reading this, take a deep breath....this is not normal breakfast here! The child has never had sugar cereal before today. Not to say she doesn't eat sugar but we haven't ever bought sugar cereal before now. She got to pick her own birthday breakfast at the store and this is what she picked. O.k. that being said....here's The Birthday Girl!

I made her a little "tiara" (this is no Holly Doodle tiara, mind you, but Emily swooned over it!) and she got to open one gift....






What is it?












It's a beautiful "Cupcake" pendant from Reminisce Heirlooms! Tabetha, you outdid yourself! It's just darling!





And it even comes in a little cupcake paper! TOO CUTE!!!



























Emily loved it,
of course!






And now for the sugar....look away, Grammy!!!!




Teeny-tiny cupcakes since it IS a school morning...and her Grandma Dack is her teacher this year!

















































Happy Birthday, My Sweet Girl!
