Seven is a piece of Heaven!

SO our Miss Melia turned seven a little while ago! She wanted a penguin family birthday so thats what we did! The girls wore their penguin jammies as we all have some and the boys dressed as instructed by Melia (black and white). Then we tried to get a picture of all three of us in our penguin jammies but Talia was a little bouncy for that...

Ah well Melia and I are in focus anyway =)

She requested poke cake as well and I permitted her to twist my arm into it.

Umbrellas have everything to do with penguins. You just don't get it.

Melia's big accomplishment in April was loosing a tooth!! She has been waiting and waiting as all her friends loose teeth again and again but I told her years ago that if she followed me in her teeth pattern she would be lucky to get her baby teeth out at all  - let alone at the right age! But when we went to the dentist Earl noticed she had a loose tooth and that girl went to work! She had that baby out as soon as possible! 

Possibly a bit excited??!!

I have a seven year old. I don't think Im ready. Fortunately she is a very sweet girl who is happy to help and brings great joy and creativity to our family. She loves to make up games with her brother and sister and they have great adventures together. She is loving reading and the new things she learns from books and school in general. She is enjoying the opportunity to make new friends and spend time with the ones she already has. She loves the primary songs she is learning and practices often at home whenever she is conscious. Her love of the gospel is an inspiration to me and she is loving being the scripture boss to remind us all to read scriptures together as a family. It is a privilege to have her in the family! Love you Melia!!
