Happy Birthday Hannah!

Thursday September 8 was Hannah's birthday. She turned 5 this year! Wow! How did she get to be so old? She is such a sweetheart and a little bummed that she is not going to kindergarten this year but I am enjoying one more year of her at home.

Good Morning Mary Sunshine! Hannah is definitely not a morning person and we obliged her by letting her sleep in as much as we can. This morning she woke up and came out to see me and sweetly told me "Today is my birthday!" She even let me take a first thing in the morning birthday picture of her.

Later that afternoon she got to open her presents. This one was probably the most exciting to her (until Rapunzel arrived the next day thanks to a very kind and generous person). This is her bag of goldfish. She wanted a kitten. One that would stay in the house all the time and never poop on the floor. Goldfish are much better. And cheaper. Welcome to the Jones household goldfish. I have named them Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Moe and Tiny. (Although as I type this on Sunday night we are down to 3 goldfish. Alas, such is the life of a 25 cent goldfish).

How old are you Hannah? How many goldfish did you get?

Hannah was born the same day as her cousin Liam. They were born 15 minutes apart and are much like twins...separated at birth. They are inseperable when they are together. We had a combined birthday party for them at my brother's house. His wife Terresa made their birthday cake. She is so talented when it comes to making the cakes and always makes the cutest ones! This one is a crayon cake with crayon candles. I LOVE that it says "COUSINS" instead of "CRAYONS". So sweet!

Here is Hannah with Liam. They are so cute together and had a great birthday party together. Thank you to everyone who came and who showered my little girl with love and gifts.
Here's to you, Hannah girl! Love you!!!
