{winds of love and birthday wishes}

the day started out early to the local supermarket to buy 22 balloons. the brightest, most lovely ones they had. when all bazillion of her friends came that morning for breakfast in the park, i had a marker ready to write a birthday wish for {winds of love} handy.

the release of these bright things brought great joy to my eyes. {we had a camera situation and i cannot locate the pics unfortunately} they were lovely, the kids all lined up, watching with wonder and amazement these things floating higher and higher with the words: happy day, presents and other various 7 year old wishes written on the balloons for her.

we then loaded up the kids and food and headed to the mountains for seclusion, wood chips and towering pines perfectly shading every last ounce of playground equipment. it was truly a marvelous time.....

here she is, 7 years old candy necklace and all....


the hood worn all day imitating the disney fluesy miss vanessa {dang them} but the beautiful curls, lovely eyes and excitement took me back 7 years ago {really?}. it was one of the most touching days of my life. her birth was trauma free, the nurse even got emotional. no pain, no screaming from me, so simple and easy that we could feel the magnitude of her little spirit entering the room. it was such a pivotal experience for me, i do love every last spec of her.

one of the great highlights of her day was being able to break the news of an upcoming wedding over dinner. she had the privilege of announcing the forth coming marriage of these two lovelies that flew all the way from the great white north...



{i am still working on character names for these two......}

happy birthday sis, you make my life!

Can I tell you how much I love her title. I wonder what adoring little, I mean big boy came up with that term of endearment. What a wonderful time my little party attender had. I can't wait to hear the wedding details.

Heidi, is that Cam getting married? I can't believe Grayce is 7! I met her when she was 2 1/2 and she said wuuiik (work) and puiiple (purple) with her cute little speech impediment!
