Happy birthday Janee!

Sadly, this will be a short post. I am bad at capturing timeless moments on my camera. In fact, she's lucky I got any at all. She wanted cheesecakes which if you've ever tried to make my mom's recipe, you know it is tricky. So I left it to the expert and made Jannalee make them for me. I did make the crusts though. Boy were they delicious, thanks Jan. Unfortunately, Janee had a really bad case of strep throat so we had to save them for her. She also was lucky enough to have her birthday fall on Father's day which she thought was really cool. No pictures of that because I was STRICTLY forbidden to get ANYTHING for Dave. I did make a really nice dinner though if I do say so myself. I had to take care of Greg that day too since Bek was in Utah. That's ok though, he's one of my favorite dads too.




Some of her presents were tickets to see Wicked with her mom and Gramma, a Nintendo DS (secretly handed down from her brother) and some fun games. She also has a cute necklace waiting to be made by her aunt Rebecca. I gave her a pack of classic books that I think every little girl should have, Gramma Proffitt gave her the book Heidi and tapes with Gramma reading it to her. Gramma Dunyon gave her an adorable dress for church which she loves. She is getting harder to buy dresses for since I want to put her in ruffles and lace and she isn't really going for that anymore.

It's really sad. Anyway, my baby girl is 9 and I love her more and more each year. Selfishly, I am glad I only have one girl but if I could give her anything just for her, it would be a load of fabulous sisters just like my own. I don't know what I would do without them. Luckily, she has some pretty fabulous cousins which I hope will serve the same purpose. Love you Janes!

It's hard to imagine how fast the time has gone. I remember when she was blessed and holding her and now seeing her so grown up just reminds me to hold on to the precious moments. Happy Birthday, Janee!

Oh heavens! I feel so NOT photogenic but thanks. Maybe its just because I'm with Janee. :)
