Allie is 10!!!

Well it is hard to believe that this little baby has now entered double digits!

 For her birthday we decided to invite a few good friends to Cici's for dinner, jumping at Elevations (the new trampoline park in town), and have the girls come back to the house for a sleepover! Her wish list for this years birthday was and Ipod, a Thunder Jersey, and money! She got everything she wanted!
Allie wanted Ms.Sue's Brownies instead of a cake this year!
Jumping fun!
Pink Chocolate pancakes for breakfast!
Allie, Nia, and Kamry
The next day Allie was itching to spend some of her birthday money so we headed off the the outlet mall to buy a pair of converse she had been eyeing for quite sometime! I was a little concerned because she had only had a few hours of sleep but she reassured me she wasn't tired. However after driving 2 miles I turned over and saw this:

One of the reasons she asked for money is she wanted to open a bank account! So we went to the bank later that afternoon and opened her one. She said her goal is to save $1,000 by the time she is 18!
To be honest, I cannot believe she is 10 years old! And with our new move she will be entering middle school in 5th grade! I am so thankful that God has blessed me with such a sensitive, kind, and funny girl. She loves God and with the "memorize and meditate" challenge (We try to memorize a verse a week and talk about it. We write it on the message board on the back of our front door and on the mirror in her room), we are doing this year it has been great to experience God's word together. She has asked that I leave "Don't worry about anything, pray about everything." on her mirror. This is something that we both struggle with and now we have created this accountability system where if one of us sees the other one experiencing "what-ifs", anxiety, or just worrying about something we say "What is the verse?"
I also love that Allie lives life as a musical!! This child sings all the time!!!
I love that she gets herself up at 5:45 a.m. because she wants to take a 30 minute hot bath every morning. She is a great kid with a great heart! For this birthday I prayed that she may always find her worth in being a child of God and that she always seek him!
