On August 29th, 2015 we gathered at our house to celebrate the birthday of a very special little girl....
Our little family was small yesterday - missing Haley and Audrey, but we sure did have a good time celebrating 12 years of wonderful! The girls swam...and played with the "big boat" in the pool....even with the big boat though, Hayden didn't want one toe to set foot in that water!
We had all of Avery's favorites - mac and cheese, brisket quesadillas (thank you Chase for putting them all together for us
Her gifts were mostly ones for her room....a mirror, a piggy bank
Hayden helped with opening most of the gifts (Avery was so sweet to let him do that)...he just LOVES opening presents....even if they are for "DIRLS"!
Lord, i thank You for this day with most of our family.....and i thank You for the gift of Avery Grace in all of our lives. She has the most precious heart....she's creative beyond compare...she's sensitive to the needs and feelings of others (and sometimes overly sensitive, just like her mimi has always been. It's a gift and a curse....sometimes feelings are so hurt when they shouldn't be....but wouldn't trade our sensitivity for anything because it allows us both a sense of compassion and empathy), her sense of humor is off the charts - finding humor in the most everyday situations and things....she's beautiful....brown eyes, beautiful wavy brown hair and so many angel kisses on her nose and cheeks you can't count them! She's tiny in stature....but she's BIG on personality....her heart Lord is moldable and i pray so hard that You will write your name on this precious one's heart....that Your hands will guide every step of all the journey's in her life, that she will have a long and beautiful life ahead of her with YOU Lord Jesus as the center of it all. I pray Your protection over her - Your Holy Spirit filling her - and Your Joy running over the edges of her heart. Lord i pray Blessings on our Avery Grace....Thank You for the sweetest little gift we have in Avery Grace Corley.
