Happy 6th Birthday sweet girl! Shaelee, you are pure sunshine and joy, and I am so glad that I skipped work and played all day with you and the family.
After Church, Shaelee wanted to go out for Chinese food. Just as we were finishing up,her best buddy called. She grinned from ear to ear, because now, she was 6 too. Thank you Sienna for your very special birthday wish!
I am not sure how it happened, but at lunch, Shaelee decided to get her ears pierced. I have always said, when they ask, we will do it. But the littles haven't asked. Only Claire, when she was 11. But Shaelee wanted to do it, and Emily thought she might like pierced ears too! Are you kidding, on my one day off, here we all were, off to the mall. There was serious fear, but pretty is pretty, and Shaelee wanted those sparkly pink earrings. Emily wanted "diamond" earrings. Same earrings different colors.
When I asked who was going first, Emily pointed to Shaelee, because she was scared(let the little sister test it out). So there was the birthday girl, on Claire's lap, hugging a teddy with tears rolling down her face. I told her, you don't have to do this sweetie, but she wanted her ears pierced, and she wasn't going home without the bling. Next up was Emily, who hid her eyes and was equally as scared. But, she wasn't going to let her little sister show her up, and she gamely sat on Claire's lap for her turn at a little sparkle as well.
They said it didn't hurt much, but they had themselves so worked up, they had me in tears. But once it was done, they were admiring themselves in every mirror that they could find. They also can't wait to show Lexi that they too, have some seriously pretty earrings.
From there, we went to the park. What a beautiful day! I was hoping for Christmas pictures, but I don't think I got one. I did get some cute pics of the fabulous 5 playing oh so nicely together. A stop for a little ice cream, and we were home to celebrate a very special birthday.
Claire, thank you for making the cake!
Shaelee, we love you so much. You are such a special girl, and we are so blessed that 2 years ago, you became our daughter. Your personality sparkles like those new earrings, and you remind me everyday that you are are a very special gift from God. Happy 6th Birthday Shaelee! We love you!
PS KHAY they grow up so fast...
