Mikayla’s SIX!!!

I cannot believe that I am the mother of a six year old!  She is such a sweet big girl.  I love her so much!

We got a little bonus on her birthday.  The night before, we had an ice storm, so school was cancelled.  Originally, Mikayla was upset because she thought she wasn’t going to get to wear the birthday crown at school.  When I assured her that this was better, because now, she was going to have and EXTRA day to celebrate, who mood quickly changed.  Smile


It was so nice to have a relaxed morning and fix Mikayla one of her favorite breakfasts…cinnamon rolls!  Since we had time, I added in some eggs and bacon, too!  Later that day, when the weather warmed up and the ice melted, we met with Mikayla’s best friend, Matthew at an indoor jumping place.   That evening, when Jeremy came home, we went out to eat Mexican, on of Mikayla’s favorites!  She can put down some cheese dip! It turned out to be such a nice day spent with my big six year old.  I just can’t believe that she has grown up so fast!

On Saturday, our family and some close friends came over to celebrate her birthday.  Mikayla, Matthew and Gavin were absolutely wild that night.  You could tell that Mikayla was super excited for her third day in a row of birthday celebrations! (Isn’t that how it should always be?!?!)


Apparantly, it does take three children to open the presents. Smile


My in-laws got Mikayla this LSU shirt – her daddy has completely brainwashed her into being obsessed with this football team.  She makes her daddy so happy!


I love the look of pure joy that Mikayla gets sometimes.  She got a little penguin that makes sounds when you give it a bottle – she was absolutely thrilled with this (as you can see). IMG_2416

Mikayla blowing out her candle.  I’ve decided that I really like doing cupcakes for birthdays.  I know we won’t always do this, but whenever I can encourage it, I will.  It is so easy!

I hope Mikayla had as much fun celebrating her birthday as I did.  I just love sharing these moments with my children.  Smile
