Happy Birthday



I can't believe Savanah's 8th birthday has come and gone already! She is growing up so quickly, too quickly.
Savanah had a few of her closest friends over for a fairy themed party. Each girl recieved wings and got dusted by the Good Queen Fairy when they arrived. (courtesy of, none other than myself, with a can of glitter spray)

The girls made fairy wands, fairy crowns, ate pizza, played "Fairy Freeze", opened presents, and ate cake and ice cream.




Love these pictures...especially the second with her eyes closed. She really thought her wish through!


We love our birthday girl so much!
It seems like just yesterday Beau and I were experiencing those first feelings of becoming a parent, when they placed her in our arms. I knew from the second I saw her that our lives would be never be the same . Discovering being a parent, with her as our first, has been one of the best journey's of our lives!

We love you Savanah!
We hope your day was as bright as you make our lives feel!
Although you got the presents, we still feel like we got the best birthday gift of all...the gift of your sweet smiling face in our lives every day!
Happy Birthday!

Wow, that looks like so much fun. I wish my friends still had fairy parties to go to. I bet you had just as much fun as her at this party "Queen Fairy God Mother" ;)

What a wonderful birthday. She will have some of the best memories you are truly a wonder. I love the fairy theme. It is so true that our children are the best gifts we have ever been given.

Oh Sav, it looks like you had such a fun birthday! Those pictures were so sweet Bon. What a fun birthday theme. I love the crafts that they made to go along with their cute fairy wings. I want to be invited next time, so that I can be dusted by the good fairy queen!

Well I think "fairies" was perfect...she looks like an angel in the picture of her blowing out the candles with her eyes closed and those chubby cheeks.

Lots of fun times ahead!

okay, the headband/crown is adorable - I may have to copy that! I can't imagine having an 8 year old. What a wonderful time for her - I can't wait to see her baptism picks - they always look so heavenly in their white dresses

Bonnie, that Savanah really is the sweetest. I wish she and Truman could just stay eight (or six . . . )

Sounds like a fun party. To go to--not to be in charge of. :)
