Happy Birthday Olivia!




















Three years ago today...
Olivia Honor - born in a hurry! She didn't give me any breaks in between contractions, but at least labor didn't last long:-) Grama and Auntie Hannah were at her birth, and I was delighted to meet this new little daughter. Since that day she has been nothing but a pleasure! A sparkle is our Olivia, a bit mischievous and sneaky, but always the charmer with her "You're the best momma in the WHOLE world Momma!" or her "You're FUNNY Daddy!"













We make birthdays a special occasion starting with breakfast and gifts in the morning. Daddy got Olivia a back pack, and the brothers and sisters contributed to filling it with treasures.































I


























DID complete O's skirt, and found a few purple accessories to go with it:-)

























Daddy and I took her out to lunch, and this evening we had the strawberry cake she asked for, except that Olivia ate the strawberries and cool whip, but never got down to the cake!
Such is the life of a birthday girl. When you've had enough, I guess you know it was a good one!
Thank you to all the precious family who called to wish O a happy birthday - you made our day that much more special.

Birthdays are so much fun...just another reason I am thankful I am not a Jehovah's Witness :)
