We celebrated Janie's 8th birthday on May 9th!!
Yeah I'm a bit late documenting😒
but all is good and she had a great birthday week!
We had her family party on Sunday evening so all the bigs could come
she named each person that was not able to be at her birthday celebration last year haha
they could not come since it was a weeknight and hard to get out of work etc
It was so funny that Janie obvioulsy held a grudge and decided to have her family birthday over the weekend so everyone could come!
my goodness she looks so old in this pic!! Janie has totally been into flamingos since she was one in her animal play....Gardner and Kendyl knew she would love this, she was so excited!!
modeling for Kendyl
Janie chooses Osaka every single birthday:)
the flamingo was packed in a flamingo bag as well...she was in heaven:)
back at the house opening the rest of her goodies!
she plays in the wrapping bag as her entourage puts her tent together...she knows how to be taken care of ha!
Janie chose a mint chocolate chip ice cream cake and ate on that thing for a week, she loved it!
we so love celebrating Janie
she loves a birthday more than any of my kiddos except Gardner, he was ALL about his birthday like Janie:)
Even though we celebrated big a few days before her birthday she told me the night before she wanted breakfast in bed "like we always do on the special plate" hahaha
only Janie QingQing wants a spinach and bacon omelette with a side of left over fried rice for breakfast!!
she blew out her candles then wanted me to carry it downstairs because she did not want to eat alone😀
She chose chocolate covered strawberries to take for her class birthday treat, this has become a yearly tradition now (Costco has the best strawberries by the way:)
I also surprised her and brought her lunch at which she said "I was going to be sad if you did not surprise me with lunch" hahahaha
told you she loves loves loves a birthday!
her face tells it all in how happy she was to get a new bike:)
she has ridden that bike every single day and Madeline has taken that as a good push to get her back on her bike as well!
Sweet Janie we love you so very much! I know we all say we can't imagine our lives without our children but Janie is extra special in how God took us to her. It is a privilege to be her Mom! I get somewhat exasperated at times with her spunk but that spunk is what saw her through her time in China. She is fearfully and wonderfully made....I'm sure God smiles upon that spunk daily and laughs at me that I was naive enough to think I had my life all planned out!
His plans are ALWAYS better than mine!!
We love you Janie Jane and love celebrating YOU!
