Eva's birthday and family anniversary is the same day, September 12th. It is amazing to me that she has been in our lives now for exactly 5 years. Since everyone is going in different directions on her actual birthday due to soccer, karate, and school, we quietly celebrated at home today. It was kind of last minute when I realized no one would be around on Monday. Although she ended up with a store-bought cake, she was quite the happy girl to be celebrating a day early.
Eva has wanted a tool set for a few years. I bucked against it, "Not my girly girl". I have finally consented. A girl needs her tools!
The pink cape does not quite match the orange tools, but it will have to do for now.
She needed a little Pinkalicious to complete the day, a gift from Grandmaa
Eva's smile just brightens up a whole room. Of all my children, she has the biggest, happiest grin. She makes me laugh with her silly ways and quick-witted replies. She's sweet, clever, sneaky, and eager for an adventure. When she first came home, she was all sweet and dainty. Over time, her two brothers have had an impact on her. She's quick to get into a wrestling match with Jack. She's even been known to take a swing at him when I'm not in the room. It seems she is always ready for a game of soccer and enjoys going to see big brothers play the game. She still loves to eat. I mean really eat. A lot. After a large bowl of cake and ice cream she asked for M & M's. I denied her...until after dinner when she asks again.
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
