Was it really 9 years ago this little munchkin came into our family?! Yes, and it's been a beautiful 9 years. Evelyn is a beauty and a joy. She is so full of talents and gifts and each day I feel like we are learning something new and wonderful about her.
She wanted her hair straightened for her bday. It's hard to tell she's a child from the back since she stands at almost 5'4"!
Evelyn was very pleased to have received a sister for her doll, Sandy. Phoebe will be loved.
Hannah and Will helping with the presents.
Phoebe received a warm welcome into the family.
Lucky for us, our community was having a Fall Fest so we got balloons, played games, had a train ride and Evelyn got her face painted!
Henry was pleased with his Spider Man balloon
Hannah got a dog on a leash
William got a long dog with a ball inside
The following Saturday, we had a little party with some of Evelyn's friends. It was hard not to invite ALL of her friends, but we had to keep it simple!
Enjoying bday pizza.
Playing "Who am I?"
Doing some beading
Bracelets are serious business!
We had some painting as well.
Happy Birthday to our sweet Evelyn Joy!
