Gracie leaps into 6!!!

     Six years ago, we didn't know what we had in store for us when our little girl was born.  Gracie is a riot and the amount of personality that she embodies is completely out of this world.  You never know what is going to come out of Gracie's mouth, but that's what is so awesome about her.  She's a what you see, is what you get kind of person.  If she isn't on board with what you have planned, she has no problem making up her own plans.  She loves fiercely and can't go a couple of hours without smothering her baby brother and sister with hugs and kisses.  She is very conscientious of her appearance and goes to great lengths in dressing herself.  Which often means she has to pick her clothes out the night before because, if not, it can turn into a one hour morning scream fest between her and I.  She is one smart cookie and I'm constantly amazed by how well she can read for her age. I see a future book nerd and I can't began to tell you how much I love that.  Her teachers praise her and her friends seem to adore her.  Her favorite things consist of helping me in the kitchen, climbing trees with Ethan, rocking it on her drums, and playing with her Barbies.  She is my right hand girl and will one day be a wonderful mother.  Sometimes I crave those moments when she lets her guard down and releases her goofy self.  We love when she dances like a hooligan and giggles like a hyena.  She is one crazy chic and even though the moments when she turns me into Cruella Deville, are a little too common, she is still the best Gracie that I know.  She is growing into one heck of a girl and whether it is because of me or in spite me, I'm beyond proud.   We love you, Gracie Goose!

     Gracie choose to spend her birthday at Build A Bear and invited her gal pal, Serena to come along.  They each got to build and dress a bear, eat lunch at the mall, devour ice cream from Dairy Queen and finished the day off with presents and cake.  Gracie had a blast and I'm sure she will always remember her special day!

School Day Birthday

I may have been drinking a little too much wine the night that I made this cake. 
She just has really short legs.  We don't judge her for that.

Excuse my loud and overbearing voice. The boys just mumble.
