Celebrating Nine Years!

My sweet girl had a very busy day!

We spent the day by having lunch at one of Addie's favorite restaurants, then I took her shopping at one of her favorite toy stores - and let her look around until she was content with her choices. 

After shopping, we went to pick up Addie's Birthday cake and another cake to share with everyone else.
That was one of Addie's favorite parts of the day!

We had a little bit of downtime while waiting for Julien to arrive home from work, so we made the most of it.

We camped out in Addie's tent

and played dress up with Rudy.

Addie climbed up into the chair and asked for a picture.
She was so excited to be celebrating her big day!

Addie was so appreciative of her gifts and loved them all,

but she adored having Julien light the candles on her cake

she has definitely gotten the hang of blowing out the candles on her cake, but

with so many candles, she needed an extra hand from Julien!

After presents and cake, we went out to dinner at another of Addie's favorite restaurants, but this time with her Julien and Bailey. 

Julien didn't even mind holding Addie's baby so she could eat her dinner.
He would do anything to make her happy!

and finally, 
per Julien's request, Bailey took this picture of Addie and Julien's hands.
So.  Sweet.

I just found your blog because I noticed you've visited one of my blogs recently, (Bringing home baby C). I'm so glad I came over here to discover your family and love for God and strength to get through trials in Him. Your beautiful daughter looks like a ray of sunshine in these pictures!! I just felt like I should tell you that you are doing an amazing job as a momma, and God sees you and your heart and loves you so much!!! I don't usually comment on blogs like that, but it feels like I needed to share that truth with you. :)
