Happy 5th Birthday Grace!

Grace turned 5 years old yesterday and she was so excited! K had gotten her a calendar from Chik-Fil-A a few weeks ago as a little gift while he was traveling. She has been into the date and days and month and thought she would enjoy her own calendar to write on and cross off days. Which of course she loves! And it seems like ever since last year when she turned 4 she has been really excited to turn 5 and now she is.  She requested a chocolate cake with strawberry frosting. We tried our best to make it strawberry-ish but they didn't have that in a can and so we added some imitation strawberry flavoring. It was alright, a mix between vanilla and strawberry but definitely pink. She got to help bake it and decorate it, which she was thrilled about it.
We got her new purple sparkly shoes, which she opened in the morning so she could wear out that day.
 Later that night opening her other presents. We also got her a princess canopy for over her bed, in pink of course.
 Grandma came over for dinner and cake. Grace colored that whole purse on one side purple, naturally.
 Reading her card from Memaw and Pepaw. She can read so good!!
 Daddy and our big girl with her Jessie Doll.
 My sweet birthday girl, we tried to convince you not to turn 4, but you kept telling us to ask God. We know He has big plans for you and your loving heart.
 The princess canopy all hung up over your bed to sleep in. What 5 year old doesn't want a special princess secret hiding place?
 We love you Grace, you light up our lives with your generous spirit, your so kind, loving and obedient. You look out for your brother and sister and are their best friends. Your eager to help and learn. I love how you like to learn silly songs and listen to the Frozen soundtrack over and over. I'm so proud of the sweet girl your growing up to be, your such a good example.
Happy Birthday Grace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
