Six years old

On Saturday, Eliza turned six!  
That week at school she was the spotlight which was fun for her.  
Birthday morning she opened her present!

We're hoping it helps her not be such a chicken on her bike.

Then we went to the mall for EAR PIERCING!  It is something she has been wanting for a couple of months.  She was so brave, not one tear.

For dinner we let her pick the place but secretly invited both grandparents so it was a sort of surprise party for her.  

Then we went back to grandma and grandpa's for cake, ice cream, and a few more presents.

The Madagascar 3 DVD came with a "Marty wig."  It totally looked like the picture.  

Eliza is such a joy in my life and our family.  Every day she makes me smile and makes me proud.  She is smart, beautiful, loving, innocent, a good helper, and a wonderful big sister.  I love her so much!

Halloween 2012

I swear Halloween lasted for two weeks this year.  It's fun but it's nice to turn the lights off and ignore the late trick-or-treaters when it's all finally over.  Which we do.

This year we had a beautiful ballerina and a silly Plex the Robot.
