Adina's Birthday

Friday, November 7, 2014

I'm finally here to share Adina's sixth birthday pics.  Woohoo!  I promise that I've got lots of paper-crafted things coming your way next week.  So, if that's more your style, it won't hurt my feelings, in the least, if you keep right on moving through your reader.  Now, for those of you who are sticking around, Daddy brought her home a little bouquet of flowers the night before her big day and made her favorite, pumpkin pancake breakfast to fill us all up the next morning.
While he was cooking, and Adina was busy in Ezekiel's room, I made up her bed with a pretty, new, birthday duvet.  She loved it!
Then, we dug out our winter coats, hats, and mittens and packed up for a chilly day seeing our furry friends at the Kansas City Zoo, as per Adina's request.
We ran into lots of people we knew, including my church youth leader from years ago and her family.  Adina latched right on and just talked the day away.  She's such a social, little lady.
After spending the day in Africa, munching on treats the docents gave us at the entrance, and swinging high on the Sky Safari, where we actually lost one of Kaden's shoes (Oops!), we were all ready to warm up back at home over Adina's favorite dinner of homemade macaroni and cheese and peas.  We threw in BBQ pork chops and a tossed salad, too, but not before digging into a few more gifts.  She's been getting them all week and even got a couple more, in the mail, just yesterday.
Pumpkin cupcakes, topped with yesterday's ballerina tutus, rounded out a fun day.  Happy birthday, my beautiful girl!  Love you lots and lots!
Thanks so much for checking in on us!  Have a blessed weekend, friends!
