Happy 6th Birthday Clara!

Clara officially turned 6 on December 15th.  We had already celebrated her birthday with friends and family, ballerina style, so Michael took the day off of work and we spent the day celebrating just the five of us.

Oh, my sweet Clara...  There aren't words to describe how precious she is to us and how much we love her.

She is currently taking a ballet and hip hop class and absolutely loves it.  She has loved to dance since she's been able to stand. ;)  She is also involved in a Girls Scouts Daisy troop and her exact words as we got ready for the meeting one day was, "I don't want to miss a minute!" ;)  She has the sweetest troop leaders and is making new friends.  She is thriving in kindergarten and we are loving the My Father's World curriculum.  She has requested to play soccer this spring and t-ball this summer, so we have those adventures to look forward to.  She can also color for hours, loves crafting, and loves playing outside.

Clara is extremely sweet, caring and thoughtful.  God knew what he was doing when He made her a big sister.  She is an incredible "Sissy" to Davey and almost always happily plays with him.  She is the best little mama to Emma, always thinking of her, helping take care of her and playing with her.  Her eyes get really big when she tells us about something that interests her.  That's my favorite.  She loves to pick out her own clothes and loves layering a skirt over her pants.  She also loves accessorizing with jewelry and headbands.  She has a deep faith in God and asked Jesus into her heart this fall while praying with Michael and me.  I love listening to her sweet prayers.

I decorated her door after she went to sleep the night before her birthday. :)

Happy birthday to my sweet 6 year old!

After breakfast we met some friends at the library for story time.  Author Tom Roberts was there telling stories and reading some of his books.

It's always fun to get to see one of your besties on your birthday!

Clara and Davey's dreams came true when we went to Build-A-Bear for the first time!  They're getting their animals stuffed here.

Oh happy day!

Clara wanted to eat at Red Robin. :)

Clara got to open her present when we got home!  She was definitely excited that it was bigger than she is!

We made Clara an ice cream cake at her request. :)

Happy 6th birthday sweet girl!
