Birthday Celebration part 1: Pinkitzle....and Chinese

Gracie celebrated her first of 3 birthday celebrations on her actual birthday, April 17th!  The day started with her waking up to presents...her favorite was the bike that I happened to get at a yard sale the day before for super cheap!


We then went to church, then met the rest of my family and Nana and Gigi (Steven's mom and Grandma) at a Chinese restaurant.....Gracie's favorite food of all time!   After lunch we went to the cutest cupcake/candy shop called Pinkitzle ( which means tickled pink in German)  Soooo super cute!

Happy Birthday to My Sweet Gracie!


I can't believe that Gracie is 5 years old today!  Steven is so sad to miss her special day, but we got to skype with him for about an hour tonight.  He got up at 4:30 am, so he would be sure to see her!  What a sweet Daddy!

Gracie, the Lord blessed us by giving us such a sweet and gentle spirit in a beautiful girl.  Your Daddy and I love your heart, how you love to obey your parents and do the right thing, how you are sweet, kind, and patient with your little sister Emma, and how you love to share with her.  We are so thankful that you love Abby so much, you enjoy making her laugh and smile, and how you help Mommy so much with the baby, especially with Daddy being gone.


Gracie we love you so truely are our miracle girl....We didn't think we would be able to have children, and the Lord blessed us by giving us you, 5 years ago.  Your Daddy and I are so excited to see what the next year holds, and I know your Daddy misses you so much, and can't wait to see you!

Sprinkler our clothes

The girls had a blast playing in the sprinkler yesterday.....of course my dad and brother encouraged them to jump right in the water, without changing their clothes....the joys of living with grandparents!
