journaling: We celebrated Sarah’s 5th birthday with a garden party. It was only family and Ms. Becky this year as the friends we invited were not able to come. We had a fabulous time anyway! It was a brunch party, so we served breakfast goodies like blueberry brunch cake, egg sausage casserole, fruit salad, and chocolate walnut bread. We made our own puzzles by drawing pictures on craft sticks and decorated cookies to look like ladybugs with chocolate chips for spots on their wings. Sarah received new My Little Pony and Littlest Pet Shop sets, and her favorite gift was a gold Zhu Zhu Pet Hamster named Nugget. It was a fun morning celebrating the special day that Sarah joined our family!

journaling: It was a quick little trip to Staples for something, probably photo paper of some kind, that Daddy tagged along on during his last visit with us in Colorado Springs. He snapped this picture with his camera and gave it to me later. This is the type of moment I remember most of him- the quiet, every day ones with him there when he was needed, even if it was just as a companion on a 10 minute shopping trip. It’s been 4 years since he went on to Heaven, and I still miss his gentle presence in our lives.

journaling: Sarah, you are one special little girl. Each day with you is an adventure. You are sweet and sassy and know just what you like. Anything cute and cuddly is an instant hit with you. You saw this shirt with the penguins on it at Target and there was no convincing you to pick anything else. You were so happy to see it in your stocking on Christmas morning.

journaling: Brenna finally lost her third tooth on January 12th, 2011. It had been wiggly for a very long time and she finally pulled it out at school. She now has a big hole in her mouth and the cutest little lisp when she talks. The other front top tooth is also loose and will probably come out soon too. She was anxiously awaiting the visit of the tooth fairy that night.
