Well, she's gone and done it again.  She's grown up a little more.  Lily is precious to us.  Since she was born, her birthdays have always been celebrated with so many loving friends and family members, even if it means she celebrates four times.  This year, she basically celebrated twice (but got so many gifts it was like a second Christmas!).  On her actual birthday, she woke up to decorations, watched a movie, opened a few gifts, had yummy fudge frosted chocolate moosetracks extreme ice cream cake, had her pick of boxed mac n cheese for her birthday dinner, and went to bed a happy and loved girl, knowing that she would be celebrated a few days later on an even larger scale.

A few days came and we headed down to Utah Valley.  She got to pick out her present at Toys R Us and she picked a Tinkerbell toy kettle that opens up to reveal a house for Tinkerbell.  Then we went to Chuck E. Cheese and had pizza and played games with many of her cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and other family members.  It was pretty impressive to see how "rich" Lily was with the tickets her Uncle Matt, Aunty April, and Carrie (April's Sister in law) won and donated to her.  We're talking 1600 tickets to spend for Lily- and she picked out some Barbie Mermaid babies that have hair that changes color in the water.  She also was showered with love and gifts- many of which kept her plenty busy while Steve and I went on our anniversary vacation to Park City.  I'm so happy for my darling 5 year old, Lily!  She brings such joy to us.
