Happy Birthday, Brilyn!!!!!

Today is Brilyn's Birthday!
She is 5 Years Old.
Can you believe it?
It seems she has grown up 
waaaaaay toooo fast!
We celebrated her birthday
with family on Sunday!
She got presents!
She loves presents!
She tried guessing what this one
was for about a week.
And nope..... it was not a refrigerator! LOL
It was a gymnastics mat, 
which Brilyn will be needing
because she started gymnastics 
this year!
And I'm sure Brilyn will be amazing.
She always is!
Brilyn is a delightful 
little girl. She's bright, beautiful
and has a smile that melts 
my heart!

Hot Air Balloon Inspiration

Last time I went to see 
Grace and Olivia they were 
wanting a hot air balloon
for their dolls.
Soooooo.... we created this!
(This is Grace's. Olivia made one, too, but 
took hers apart to play with the bouncy ball)
It is simply one BIG ball, four wooden 
dowels a bucket and some duct tape.
But it provided hours of fun!
I was actually surprised at how
much play value it had.
The girls.... and their little 
friend Isaac, played with it 
almost all day!
And I think their little dolls
were very HAPPY!

Grace's Choir Concert

 Grace joined the Children's Choir
at the church she attends this year.
 She just participated in her 
first concert:
Praise Like Fireworks
 She is a first grader and you have to 
be in second grade to try out for 
solos and speaking parts....
but she got to sing in the choir.
Can you see her there between the
girl in the PINK and the girl in the BLUE?
 Here is an UN-obstructed view!
The performance was spectacular and it
had a very good message.
We should be so full of praises for 
our God that we can't keep them
contained.... like a firework the never
fizzles out.
Olivia, Grace and Ryan
(Ryan is their choir director)
