|Birthday girl, you are worth a celebration of the highest thanks and joy that the Giver would give us YOU.|
|Birthday breakfast! As fancy as we could dream up (for a school morning especially!) What a treat to celebrate Vivi!|
|She gushes joy and sweetness and silly goofballisms all the time off camera but she's quick to avoid it when the lens is pointed her way so I guess I just have to treasure all that up in my heart since I can't share it with you here.|
The next day we celebrated "Breakfast at Vivian's", her party, with all her fancy friends...
Stuffed crepes and yogurt parfaits (with oatmeal cookie bar crumbled inside... great use for a recipe that wasn't A+ on it's own) and strawberry lemonade scones (they were top notch!). We had a yummy, dress-up fancy time!
|this is when she knew I wanted to get a pic of her with her birthday crepe and her #5 candle. Almost as bad as last year, sweetheart!|
After breakfast, Vivi's best friend from school had to leave because she wasn't feeling well. She was missed! But the party did go on...
|there were at least 4 wardrobe changes.... all of them stunning (don't miss, the dress layered over dress look modeled here.)|
This is her camera look these days. I wish I could show you her smile because it's sparkling, but this is all she gives me. I'll have to try to be sneaky...
And I do hope you know that all hairstyles, jewelry and dress arrangements were done all by herself. I hope that goes without saying! Wouldn't want credit to come to me for any of that!! :)
Her brothers really were there. They just, sadly, didn't get in any photos on my camera. But boy, do these boys love their little sis. A gift to have their protective care shown to our littlest.
