He is LIGHT and LIFE and TRUTH! Look to Him for the ALL the answers. He will guide us, if we'll let Him.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Hannah's 7th Birthday

Hannah had a fabulous day for her birthday! Everyone was very thoughtful and worked hard to help her have a special day. (She was very upset that her daddy was going to be out of town for her birthday). She got to talk to Daddy first thing in the morning and right before bed--that made her very happy :0).

Nanny Boo Boo and Poppie showed up early to sing to her and bring her some gifts. They surprised Caleb with a gift, too. She was excited to start her day this way.

All Things Glitter--how fun!
They gave her this sweet blanket and pillow--she's snuggled up in it for her online class.

This is the tool belt and tools they brought for Caleb.
He's loving having tools like Daddy!

Mrs. Sandy and Mackenzie came up to do school with her and brought her a bag full of gifts. Mackenzie made her some special cards, too.

This says "I love U Hannah G. U make me happy. (So sweet!)

Precious friends!

The Rhodes' family--Loretta, Seth, Erin, Micah, and Zachariah (otherwise known as Ridah) called and sang her a whacky, birthday song. She loved it! Then, they showed up halfway through our school day bearing gifts. I forgot to get the camera out....:0(.
Oh, we'll have fun with this!
The balloons were a great hit--Thanks Rhodes' Family! (we took them to church to put on the chair she sat in during class)

Then she got mail! Now that was exciting. A card and $10.00 from Mima & Papaw. A card and $7.00 from A. Ellen and a card and some stickers from her Sunday School teacher, Jessica. A sweet card from Pastor Gwen & Mrs. Cindy from church.
Pastor Gwen & Mrs. Cindy sent the birdy one. Mima & Papaw sent the one with the $10 peeking out.

This was from A. Ellen

From Miss Jessica

A. DeDe, Avery and Landon called and sang to her and they sent her a gift card for a Build-A-Bear. She's saving all the other money she got to put with that when we go to make her bear. She can't wait!!

We made cupcakes and took them to her Prims class at church last night. They sang to her and Mrs. Valerie (her teacher) gave her a ZING Ball.

Yes, Hannah did all the decorating.

We just got messages this morning on the phone from Mima & Papaw and her friend, Abigail. They called to say "happy birthday" and we were not here. Bummer! But, it sure made her smile this morning!!

We went to the park for supper. She and Caleb played while I got supper ready. She wanted a sub sandwich, so we bought one at WalMart and some sour cream and onion chips--her favorite. We ate on a bench at the park.

All in all it was a very special day for her. Thanks to all of you who went the extra mile to make it so special. I can't believe my baby is 7!!! Wow!

I'm knitting her a hat--it's not finished, yet. And.......she has a special surprise coming from her Daddy and me.....hopefully we'll have it soon and I'll post pics!
