Up & Away!

A week later, it's still hard for me to believe I'm a mother of a 7 year old lil lady! This year Rylee's only request was to have her close friends over for an 'at home' birthday party. I decided that was a simple enough request. Aunt Missy helped with our totally cute hot air balloon theme. The night turned out to be a huge success! We made necklaces, played an intense game of twister, had a hilarious potato sack race, pinned the tail on Mr. Donkey, ate delicious cupcakes, and enjoyed the chaos! Happy birthday Rylee!

Seven already?

Its still so hard for me to believe my beautiful baby girl is already 7. She's finishing up her first grade year and learning to read like a champ. Rylee has recently decided to quit gymnastics and switch to cheer. She cheers for a local team that I used to when I was a teenager. Rylee is spunky, sweet, smart, honest, such a good friend, a peacemaker, terrific helper, awesome older cousin, loves to cuddle, still has a very tender place in her heart for her grandparents, loves horses, very obedient... I could go on forever! I took Rylee in for a few pics of her in her only year of being 7. I love how these pictures show off her two teeth missing and her love for working the camera :) Your mama loves you and thinks you're pretty special Rylee Kate!!
