How can she be 10? 10! My baby, my angel, our Lily is 10. Wowzers!
We started celebrating on Saturday with nearly 60 of Lily's closest friends. Our house is under 2,000 sq ft. :)
We swam, we bounced, we ate. I like to think a good time was had by all!
We invited Lily's friends, most she has known since she was less than a year old and some new ones as well. We had family, our friends who are like family and well... a house full! Approx 30 kids and their wranglers. It was a great time. Next time we have a party we will be in a much bigger and frankly boring house. One where people aren't crammed next to each other forcing conversation upon each other :) I like our small house and know I will really miss it when we move come November.
My laptop is on her way to hospice and the amount of time it took to upload just this one photo tells me that this will be the only photo I upload. But I am uploading to flickr so cuise on over there if you must see the party of all parties where the mom hardly took any photos. Hey I was busy.
Lily's actual day was Tuesday the 28th and she had a half day at school, when she got home we all went swimming and later had more cake.
I could write all about these past 10 years, but I have done that a lot. I could share my hurt each birthday, but I don't want to. I just want to say Lily is an angel. She is a gift. She is the best teacher I will ever know. We are blessed to get to share each day with her and I am beyond the moon being given the opportunity to being her mama.
If can't see God in the beauty that is Lily, than you need to change the way you see.
Happy Birthday Lily! Praying for many, many, MANY more happy days with you!
