My Sweet Little FIVE year old!!

Trinity’s model pose. She had fun picking the outfit out with a birthday gift card she was given. The outfit was on her within 30 seconds of arriving home.

Two weeks ago, we celebrated Trinity’s fifth birthday. I can’t believe my baby’s five years old now!  She is growing and maturing beautifully…eager to learn (homeschooling is going SO much better this year!!), eager to help (mostly), an eye for neatness and cleanliness (GREATLY appreciated by her mother!), a graceful dancer, and a music writer (she’s written a song she sings to Malachi when he starts crying and now the whole family uses it…in fact, Katy-Grace purposefully MAKES Malachi cry so that she can sing it to him…) As she gets older, I am enjoying the beauty of a mother-daughter relationship.  Its so fun introducing her into the domestic world, and she thinks she is so big and grown up as she learns and helps. This sweet little girl of mine, has such a sensitive heart to Jesus, and tells me about different things and people she prays for. She wants everyone to “hear about Jesus so they can go to heaven”. And the Bible verses this kid has memorized…I’m the one teaching them to her, and she knows them better than I do!!

The first year we were here in Orlando we were extremely blessed to celebrate her 3rd birthday with TWO sets of cousins, then last year the Nolls were still here to comprise 1/3 of the guest list of her 4th birthday celebration, and this year, we had her party with sweet friends, but no family. We are missing their presence, as they have moved to Virginia now!

Missing the Noll bunch! (One of our last kid-chaos meals 🙂

Trinity LOVED party planning, and since this was a VERY homemade party (gotta love the seminary budget!) we did everything together. Planned the guest list, printed out invitations, made a pinata, made the cake, and went shopping at the dollar store for decorations. A little picture documentation of her celebration..

    Fantastic! What a resourceful and ingenious mother! Uniqueness is often better than store-bought stuff. What a mother! What love!
