Sweet Adelaide

My little Adelaide turned 5 last Friday. When the older kids turn a new age it feels like they should be getting older, but with Addie and Gibson it kills me every time. Why can’t they just stay my little babies?


I don’t you can get much cuter! My little girl who wanted a Minnie Birthday. I was thrilled to find the polka dot dress down here.

We had a great day. We woke up early, Autry and CLaire stayed home from school, we had Minnie Mouse pancakes, and then went to the park. Addie was so thrilled that was her birthday. Being the third child and the quietest she doesn’t get to be the complete center of attention very often, so it is so much fun to make the day all about her.

Randy’s afternoon students wanted to throw a surprise party for her in the afternoon so we had a blast doing that. I think Addie was a little overwhelmed by it but it was a lot of fun.

After the party we came home to get read for the second party of the day. We invited friends over to celebrate Addie again. It was a full day but a good day.

The day ended with Autry reading a book to his sister. What a good life we have!

I am so thankful for this little girl that the Lord has given us. She is so sweet and sensitive. She loves her family very much and surprises me all the time by how smart she is. She has taught herself how to write and is now teaching herself to read. She is by far the quietest member of our family, and doesn’t like talking to people outside of her family. However, sometimes she will surprise us with what she will pipe up and say. She loves to crawl up on our laps and cuddle and is always good for an abundance of hugs and kisses.

I can’t wait to see how the Lord uses her sweet, sensitive spirit for him. We pray that the Lord will work in her heart and help her to know and love him deeply.
