We made #2 pancakes for her with whip cream which was not on yet in this pictures. She actually had chocolate milk (chockie as she calls it) this morning.
Peter and I stayed up late last night finishing these cupcakes. She did not really get a cake last year due to the fact we moved on her birthday so I wanted to make a cake (or cupcakes) that would be special for her. Peter figured out Abby's hair- way to go dad! She loved them and so did the boys.
Blowing out the candles. She did one and Jon felt he should do the other because he is just helpful that way.
On another note, today marks the one year mark of our departure from Las Vegas. The year has whizzed by. We have been happy here in Texas. We miss our friends in Las Vegas but have made new friends here. We would love our house to sell in Vegas, I really did not think it would take a year. Our final year in Las Vegas was filled with Arabella's birth and many other great blessings and the challenge of Peter's unemployment. We learned so much over that year. As I am looking back one more year it is wonderful to see how the Lord has blessed and directed our lives again. His love for me and my family is so clear to see in so many things. My heart is full of gratitude for the many blessings in my life: job, house, great children, wonderful husband, church calling, gospel, Savior, living prophet, scriptures, family, friends, challenges and trials. I wonder what the next year has waiting- I know it will be perfect.
