All day kindergarten and now she's six? Not sure how much more i can take. :-)
She decided she would have a Build A Bear celebration with five of her best buds from class. Each of our girls has had a Build A Bear party but i have to say, this one was the best by far. Our party host was marvelous! Fun and loud, just like Lily! :-) Make sure and ask for Nick if a Build A Bear party is in your future. Of course, no birthday around here seems to avoid Chuck E Cheese. For some reason the girls always like to go with the rest of Tacoma to Chuck E Cheese on a Saturday night and for some reason, their silly parents oblige to this silly request. Lily ended her birthday week....that's right, she milks it for all it's worth, with a dinner date to Red Robin with the best Daddy in the world.
Lily, you've made life so much fun. You are a crazy nut ball of love. You live life out loud and to the fullest. You have no filter, which is frightening and comical all at once. You are a mean baby of love, yet at the same time, so tender hearted and kind. You keep us on our toes and i can't imagine what life would be like without you. Can't wait to see you on American Idol or Dancing with the Stars one day. Yup....she's already counting down the years. :-)
And i don't care what anyone says.....you look just like me!
I love you so much precious gift!
P.S. If you missed Lily's birth story last year. Here

|Playing games while they were waiting their turn for their animal to be stuffed.|
Nick even sent the girls on scavenger hunts. He was fabulous!
|Happy girlies with their new friends.|
|This is my favorite part....when each friend puts a heart in Lily's animal. So sweet....|
|The party man Nick! Did i mention how amazing he was?|

Boys would never make things this complicated. :-)
|Still hard to believe she is 6!|
|Put the characteristics of what we think it is to be a good friend on their cupcakes.|

Please come back sunshine....i miss you!
|No photo shoot would be complete without Lily yelling: MOM!!!!|
That is my cue to stop taking photos.
|And when i don't stop, this is what i get. I literally could fill an album with this face alone.|
|New big girl bike. She wanted to be cool and get a black bike like Bella|
but couldn't find one that was black with flowers on it. She's a big
foo-foo bruit and i love it!
