On January 17th, this tiny joyful girl turned 5 years old! We celebrated by having ice cream for breakfast...
...and Famous A's chocolate chip pancakes for dinner! (That is Karlie's "I'm so excited it is almost scary" face :)
The following day, Karlie had planned a dress-up party for the girls in her CC class. Nina had given her a vet costume for CHirstmas and she was so excited to wear it!
A ballerina, and princess, and a vet excitedly waiting for their friends to arrive
The kids played together for a while and then we had lunch and CAKE!
We tried to get Karlie to take off her vet hat for the pictures, but she was determined to stay in costume :)
Cutest vet ever!
Emma wanted to hold Susanna every chance she got!
Karis enjoyed the cake...
And so did Abbi...
But the part of the party that was most anticipated was the pinata! Karlie had been asking for one ever since she saw one at a party last summer...
And when it finally broke, there was great excitement and running for the prizes...
Karlie received some very thoughtful gifts from her family and friends:
Karis got pretty excited over some of the art projects also!
While Abbi enjoyed snuggling with Grandma
Sweet Karlie Sue, Oh how we love you!
We pray that you will keep your infectious laughter and boundless energy and use it for God's glory!
