Anna Grace turns 5

Thanks Kalli, Whitney and Michelle. The banner was perfect!

Anna Grace turned 5 August 2 (same birthday as her Maw Maw Ann). She had a very fun birthday party! Seeing the joy on her face was worth all the work. We had planned on having a puppy dog tea "pawty" but changed plans at the last minute. While surfing the internet, I ran across a rainbow birthday cake. At that point, I knew that would be the perfect party...a Rainbow party!! I asked Anna Grace if she wanted a tea party or a rainbow party and while waving her hands in the air in a arched motion, she said , "rainbow!" So, we planned a rainbow party for her and included some of her favorite things: tea party, play dough, miniature golf, and a rainbow art project using glue. It was a success.

It touched my heart seeing how much fun she had. I mainly invited family to the party. Anna Grace seems to thrive more in a small group, so I tried to keep the guest list smaller than normal. Anna Grace was full of life that day. She was running and laughing and just having a blast. Of course, she enjoyed showing off "Rainbow"-a Havanese puppy that she got for her birthday.

Rainbows mean so much to our family right now (to find out why see my first blog). We are clinging to the promises of our Savior. We are trusting him and his Word. Lord, I know you promise to never leave us nor forsake us. Thank you for holding, leading and loving us. We are trusting that with you "nothing shall be impossible" (Luke 1:37). No matter where our journey leads us, you are there and your light is guiding our way. I love you Lord!

Ok, time for some pics!
