A Birthday Girl!

Well, the day I have been dreading came and went. I laughed, I cried and I cherished the day! We had a wonderful combined birthday party for Bentley and Avery on Saturday and over all the girls had a fun time. I also had a blast doing a very pink and purple cupcake party.
Just a glimpse of the fun decorations
Here she is: the sweet little birthday girl in her cute shirt
Just one of her favorite new toys
I bought this large cupcake with the hopes of taking her picture next to it every birthday and watch how small the cupcake gets. We'll see if I remember. I tried and tried to get her to smile but I think she thought I was acting very strange all day. I had a hard time looking at her without tearing up.
There's the happy girl!
Here is her giant cupcake that I made just for her with her name on it.
It took her a little while to dig in. She would take a little bite and then watch all of us. I think she was in shock that this large cupcake was right in front of her face and she was just allowed to eat it without anyone stopping her.
She got the hang of it and had help from her uncle shoving the B in her mouth
She soon got through the frosting and a girl after my own heart...chowed down the chocolate!
We got a pull string pinata and she had fun pulling the strings. She isn't wearing any clothes because this was after the cake and she had to be stripped down and washed head to toe!
This was on Sunday morning...her actual birthday. She loves crepes so I made a cute little one out of it. Don't mind the lovely hair she just woke up:)
A bitter-sweet picture. My last cupcake-day for my dear sweet baby girl. I literally couldn't stop crying that morning and all through church. My third cupcake-day era has come to an end but as Jarron keeps reminding me every time he sees me crying he says another is right around the corner. I just can't say enough how much this sweet little spirit has added to our home and I just love her to death and thank Heavenly Father for trusting me to raise this precious angel. Another year has already begun and I hope it brings greater joy than the last.
Happy Birthday Bentley! Mommy loves you!

I'm so glad you are getting another little angel soon. I think you would be a mess without one! Fun b-day!

That looked like so much fun. Sorry we didn't make it, the kids were gone and I wasn't feeling well. I'm glad things went so well.
