This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Another Day, Another Birthday!

On the 27th of July, Livia turned FIVE! Since Virginia's birthday and party were the day before, we stayed up late finishing Livia's present. I had bought some barbies from ebay and didn't notice that the listing failed to say "came from a smoke free home." Ugh. So I washed them and their clothes, and had to comb out and re-set their hair. I had only gotten 4 dolls finished before that night, so Troy became official barbie untangle-er while I got to style the hair and hot water set them.

Liv seemed pretty happy I think.

Then Breakfast! Leftover Cake (we added candles and sang to her, of course)

We traveled to Silver Pring to Brookside Gardens to visit the Butterfly house. It was wonderful! Everyone really liked seeing a million butterflies all around us, eating, resting, fluttering...

We then cooled off a little (it was HOT in the butterfly house) with a stroll throught he gardens. The rose garden smelled INCREDIBLE!

Lunch was at P.F. Chang's since Liv had always wanted to eat at the horse restaurant. :) It was a first for the whole fam. We out candles in her banana springroll and mango icecream too. We always carry candles and matches around on their birthday so we can sing all throughout the day.

I think it was a good day.
