Clara's 7th Birthday

Our sweet Clara turned SEVEN December 15th!  We spent the day celebrating our girl with some of her favorite things!

Clara is such a light.  She has the most beautiful heart.  She is a wonderful big "Sissy" to Davey and Emma.  She loves to play with them and is always making sure everyone is safe and taken care of.  Clara has an incredible imagination and is always coloring or crafting.  I love how her eyes get so big when she's telling me about something.  She is a friend to everyone she meets.  She's doing great with school and especially excels in Math.  She's loving ballet and Girl Scouts.  She also had fun trying soccer and T-ball out last summer/fall.  Clara loves playing outside.  She also loves to wear dresses and skirts.  Another favorite of hers is helping me in the kitchen.  She's the cutest little baker.  She has a heart for the Lord and loves learning about Bible stories.

Every year (starting at age 3), I ask the kiddos a list of questions on their birthday.  Here are Clara's answers on her special day this year.

She requested a donut cake for her birthday! :)

Happy, happy!

Clara's Trolls themed parties with her friends and family were the next day.

We got our little baker a Christmas cookbook and some baking supplies.

She also got a coloring book and sticker mosaic book for her little artist heart.

And of course, trolls!!

Last, but not least, a body pillow was on her wishlist.

Oh my gosh, I just love her!!!

Ready to head to lunch!

Clara requested we eat at Red Robin.

Silliness while we wait for food.

Clara got a special birthday sundae!

Next stop, Chuck E. Cheese!

Look at Davey's little arm sticking out.  Clara was sitting on his lap for this "ride."

Oh, yeah!

And finally, we stopped by the Western Mall for their fantastic light show.  My kiddos are the ones in the middle dancing to the music. :)  So fun!

We swung by Cherry Berry quick on the way home.  Such a great day celebrating our sweet, beautiful girl!

December's Little Moments

I couldn't love her more!!  Look at my sweet baby hold my finger while she drinks her strawberry grape smoothie. 💕

The Murrays came over to play!  Emma and Allie are the sweetest little friends!

Shopping for furniture for our new home!

Head stands!

These two were all bundled and ready to play in the snow!

My precious first baby.  I went to check on her before I went to sleep and she had her bear tucked in next to her.  Please stay little forever...

morning snuggles

🎶 Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters... 🎵

Ladies night Christmas party at Monica's!  So fun!

Precious little girl playing princesses.

Bedtime stories.  She is so sweet!

Clara made lots of Christmas treats with her Girl Scout troop.  She loves Girl Scouts and she loves baking and decorating, so she was one happy camper!

I love when I get one-on-one time with my girl!

We got home and remembered we meant to take a picture with all of Clara's treats.  So fun!

Daddy telling Emma to "stick to the wall."  Oh the giggles!!!
