Joy’s 8th Birthday

Joy’s birthday is actually on June 1st, but we had Grandparents coming into town for Memorial Day so we celebrated early!

Today was all about whatever Joy wanted!


She had donuts for breakfast – she and Daddy went out and got them.

We all loaded up the van and invaded ToysRUs.  We left her admire all of the toys – and she finally chose two gifts, a large Caillou doll and a Frozen watch.  OK, then. We got her the doll and Grandma bought the watch.  Totally not what I would have gotten her, but she was so happy!

She rode the quarter ride with Caillou and thought that was aweseome!

We all went to McDonald’s where she got exactly what she wanted – cow pies, syrup, and juice or French Fries, Ketchup, and Soda.

When we got home we watched Frozen on the big screen.  She loved it!  Bella acted out each scene.

We had a Frozen cake and ice cream and opened presents from her sisters.

She had a great day and she was so happy!

We love you so much Joy!!  I can’t believe you are eight years old!  How has that much time passed?  Love ya baby girl!!

Birthdays remind me that baby Joy (not Baby, she would tell me) is adopted.  My mind floats over to California, to her Mother and her twin brother.  I hope y’all are well.  I hope Greg’s birthday is a wonderful one. 

We love you Joy Joy!  Happy 8th birthday!! I hope you have a wonderful year!
