my girl

yesterday (december 17) my firstborn, briley elisabeth, turned 7 years old. this sweet child never ceases to amaze me with her compassion, joy, imagination, love and much more. thank you God for the wonderful blessing of briley.


the mickey birthday pancakes have become a tradition...


the new birthday coat. she had grow to hate her silver one from last year that, of course, still fits but...
mommy and briley...

i wish i had pics from the fancy business dinner she attended with us last nite (aunt dana let us snap a few with her camera). we called it a bday dinner for her - she was just glad to get out with her parents and not her brothers:)


**on another note- today (december 18) our dossier left St Louis (where it was reviewed) for Washington D.C. since it's the holiday season i am pretty sure things are moving slow up there but hopefully the beginning of January it will be back in St Louis and we will be on the list:)
