Carmella 6th Birthday

Our little pixie is six!  Carmella's birthday came in the middle of a busy time including a week away, the long Fourth of July weekend and a week of hosting some teens from Virginia.  Whew!  It's no wonder she asked to spend the day just swimming and face painting which was perfect for all of us.

We made a run to our favorite ice cream shop.  

And as an extra surprise our friends brought their pet bunny over for Carmella to play with.   (Carmella loves bunnies and has been asking for a pet bunny for some time.)  

This little girl is such a blessing to our family.  She knows what needs to be done and can carry on often without direction.  

She is an amazing big sister to Addison always purposefully teaching him and never letting him get away with anything.  

She is an equally good little sister to Elisabeth willing to take her lead and learn from her instruction.  Her big heart, determination, sharp wit and gentle yet firm spirit keep us all on our toes.  She lives out the Joie in her name with her very presence and we could not be more blessed to have her as one of us.  

Wishing so much happy birthday precious girl.
