In June Ava turned 12!
That means she is already 12 yrs 3 mos!
My goodness, I'm behind!
We celebrated the night before her actual day
because we had big plans for that day!
Not a birthday celebration but a family outing.
(We are actually trying to make our celebrations a little more low key.)
Next post we will share what we did!
This girl is amazing and such a blessing to our family!
The kids are still making cards and gifts for each other!
They take pride in their work and
love doing something special for the birthday person!
Opening presents is the BEST PART!
And she was definitely happy
with what she got!
She wanted the perfume but
she was mostly after the
I may have said open you eyes and look at me...
She was very excited about getting roller blades!
They do a lovely job with the bundt cakes!
I can't believe she is 12!
It's gone by sooooo fast.
Ava came home when she was 5 yrs 8 months.
Her transition was extremely easy!
Sam came home with her.
Both kiddos bonded and adjusted immediately-
it was a blessing!
She's taking this seriously!
Ava has a wonderful sense of humor!
It is so much fun chatting, joking and laughing with her!
She is a bookworm and always has a book in her hands!
Sometimes she forgets her chores because she "needs to read"!
Ava is super smart girl and a whiz at everything academic.
She loves animals and is our resident
dog and cat whisperer!
She has a very kind heart and treats her sibling well...
she can relentlessly tease
her sisters and brothers!
Ava likes to go shopping...
in her sisters closets!
And she loves to
her siblings books!
Happy Birthday dear Ava!
We are blessed to be your parents!
