Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

A First Birthday

I know Ivy is not one, but she had a birthday celebration for the first time in her life.  Imagine being 8 years old and no one ever acknowledging your birthday.  It is so hard to comprehend that in our current society, but that is what Ivy has told us.  But, Sunday, Ivy celebrated her first birthday while celebrating 8 years of life.  Our dear friends from Illinois happen to be in town to share in the joy of Ivy.

Waiting for us to say "Go".

Mike's mom has bought each of the girls one of these cute dolls from Magic Cabin.  The neat thing is that they all came with a different dress so they can tell them apart.

Seth, enjoying his new "Rapunzel Hair".

Notice Moxie's wounded eye?  Our friends' dog got a little annoyed with her puppy-like behavior and let her know it.  Thus the cut below her eye.  Poor baby!

Ivy just fell in love with this doll cake.  She picked Strawberry cake with buttercream icing.  The yellow dress with pink flowers was her choice.


It was a great day.  Ivy was very happy.

Happy Birthday, Ivy! You and Haleigh share the same birthday and both of you celebrated for the first time. It looks like the party was a success! I love the doll!

Anita

Happy, Happy Birthday Ivy! My heart just hurts for her and all the other children who have never been told how special they are...especially on their birthdays and how much they are loved. Now, she has this first birthday memory to build on with her family!! Your post just confirms to me what I had already been thinking about for Kaleb's birthday in April especially since they are from the same orphanage. :)

Happy Birthday, dear Ivy! I know this birthday was truly special. It warms my heart greatly to see her celebrate her birthday with her forever family. What a gem she is!

Deb, Russ, Lily, Lucy and Lainey

Happy Birthday Ivy. You are so happy!!!
