Hanna will turn 10 Tuesday and my was it a mix of emotions putting those double digits on her cake today. Some of my thoughts were: I can't believe how fast these 10 years have gone, how quickly she has gone from little girl to my "friend and companion"--especially within the last few months, how 10 is the halfway point to 20, and if the first 10 have passed so quickly so will the next 10. The years just pass in the blink of an eye and I try so very hard each day to remember this. That is one thing that helps me remain positive weeks like this one!
Hanna loved her cake, and presents too:-). She was "tickled pink" to get more crafty decor for her awesome new room. I will post about each of these crafts as she completes them--they are some really cool ones!
She had fun playing, laughing and being with family. Hanna is very family oriented and always has been. She will choose being at home and with family over anything--and I do mean anything. This is such a comforting feeling and makes me feel so loved by her, and delighted that she enjoys our home and family so much.
Joe had a blast running, climbing, goofing off and just being Joe. He was happy too, the whole evening and thoroughly enjoyed playing with grandparents, aunts and his uncle.
Jack was happy Jack--for the most part:-). Even with the terrible time he's having teething right now, he still has such a sweet and happy disposition. He is such a "beautiful" little boy!! I didn't get too many good pictures of him though--only one. He was on the go the whole time and it was impossible to get a good shot of him. I did get this really sweet, cute one of him and Jamie going down the slide--I love it!
Here are a few more pictures of us together. It was a fun, special time--a memory made that will be a happy, lasting time for our family. Hanna, I love you so much, and am so very thankful for you each and every day!
