Family Day {5}

I can hardly believe it but here we are we are celebrating the awesome milestone of Li'l Empress joining our family five years ago today!

Five.Years.

Wow.

Here's a look back at the joyful! exuberant! "little fiery one!" that is our girl...

Getting to know her Daddy.
Charming her Daddy is more like it!

Such! a! BIG! personality!

Soaking in all the last rays of summer...

Such a little fashionista.
(It would just be wrong to call her a ham here...)

Proud to participate in her
first "Eagles Spirit Day" as a new Kindergartner.

And today. 6 years old. Thriving in her first grade class.
Learning how to be an excellent big sister.
And still charming her Daddy with her beautiful smile.

Happy Five Year Family Day, Li'l Empress.
You are a treasure and a gift to our whole family.
Your sunshiny spirit and joyful manner brightens everyone's day
and we love that you LIVE! BIG! and LOVE! BIG!
with your whole heart.
We are so thankful God brought you to this home,
to this family, FOREVER!
We LOVE you!

Good morning my friend - yes I've been absent - dealing with the ongoing family things (he says with a sigh) - one day perhaps
people will come to their senses - or more correctly I pray!

Great first day of school - our's was last Thursday for all of them - and it went wonderfully! The kids are learning something about the need to be on schedule however - alas - the bus comes at 7:05! Still we too are off an running.

Your guys look outstanding - a fine young man on the cusp of adulthood - so much change in the last few months - be proud! Actually - ALL of them look GREAT - I'm not all that surprised - but I am extremely happy with you!

hugs - aus and co.
