she's 6!

 She turned 6 on Saturday and we were there to celebrate with her!

It made me happy that she took the time to read
 the card we gave her...every word!!

A pretty princess cake...just what our "princess" ordered!

The party was at Chuckie Cheese...a favorite with our Tenn girls.
Everyone had fun...Little E loved the rides for the little ones!

Big Sister likes the games for the bigger kids.

The birthday girl liked it all!

Her sweet little cousin on her Mom's side of the family
loves her a lot and just wanted to be where she was!

One gift was too big to take to the party,
 so her aunt gave it to her at home.
Our daughter and her hubby found a pattern for an easel
 on line that was too big for a little girl, so they designed
 and built this one just for our Riley.
It has a chalkboard with a tray to hold her chalk,
 paint (which was homemade, too!), brushes, markers, etc.
In the next picture, you can see the roll of freezer paper
 on the back that can be pulled over the chalkboard
 for painting and such.

She loved it! Little E helped break it in!

She is a sweet girl with lots of personality!
She keeps her Mom and Dad on their toes
and keeps us all laughing with her quick wit and her
funny antics. She loves her big sister and is a sweet play mate 
to her little cousins. 
She is a delightful gift from God to our family! :-)
