Baby's First LEFSE!!!!!!!
|Buttercup lovingly grew out her hair so that she could donate 10 inches to Locks For Love.|
|Yesterday, we went to the salon to get her hair cut.|
|She loves it!!!|
Good job, Buttercup!! All those tangles were worth combing out for awhile for such a worthy cause!!
We are proud of you!
|Happy Birthday, Coco!|
|What a fun day you had coloring with your new coloring pencils and coloring books!|
|You helped Grandma decorate your cake.....|
|...and you picked a purple polka-dot theme!!!|
|You smiled all day....|
|...and thought of a wish before you blew out your candles!!|
|You received a new purple winter jacket...|
|...a Dora journal....|
|....and paper dolls that Grandpa and Grandma helped you punch out of the book.|
|I really tried hard to talk you out of having your "4" birthday. I asked you if you would stay "3" for one more year and then have your "4" birthday next year. But you were adamant about turning 4 and told me that it just had to be this way.|
Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!
We Love You!!
|This girl is ready....|
|...it's the thing to do...|
|...when your sibling closest in age is a boy.....|
...and he is a daily playmate!!
|Go Get-Em Coco!|
She was having so much fun that she requested a football themed birthday party! With a little encouragement from mom, we have since changed the theme for next week's party to purple polka dots!!
.....who from their labors rest,
Who Thee by faith before the world confess,
Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest,
Thou wast their Rock, their Fortress, and their Might;
Thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight.........
.......Oh, Thou, in the darkness drear,
their one true Light.
|St. Francis of Assisi|
Oh, may Thy soldiers, faithful, true and bold,
Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old
And win with them the victor's crown of gold.
|O blest communion, fellowship divine,........|
..........we feebly struggle, they in glory shine;
Yet all are one in Thee, for all are Thine.
