Birthday celebrating with friends and family was oh so fun but the day of her birthday was even sweeter.We started with chocolate chip birthday pancakes and a happy birthday song. She was so excited it made my heart smile just watching. Her big brother sang happy birthday to her on his guitar while I danced and held her at 8:54 ringing in her 2nd year of life with a big emotional swing. We had a blessed morning at church and then headed out to a nearby pumpkin patch and farm for the afternoon.
This girl is loved by many, and so very lucky to have these boys around to protect and care for her.
She had a blast at the little farm too. As soon as we got out of the car she noticed two horses in a nearby field. When we walked over to the fence they quickly trotted over to us to say hello. Gentle and friendly as they were everyone took turns petting them but the birthday girl. She giggled nervously, smiled, and also repeated the words no, no, no, yet she didn't want to walk away. Just when she would begin to warm up again one of them would bray and startle her again. It was a sweet and unexpected little birthday gift.
