A List Maker's Life: Transformation

Sunday, June 6, 2010


Last Thursday I could hardly imagine a celebration.  Yet, we have a very special 6 year old to celebrate.  
I pulled up my idea books, recipes.com, and my big girl smile in an effort to make this birthday just as special for our Gavin as the five before. 

{Transformers Party}

It was actually completely enjoyable to put my energy into a party.  Even more delightful, all the joy we saw in our big G as his grandparents, aunts, uncles, and siblings focused on him.
{Hot Wheels Party}

We had a delicious pizza party with The Papa, chocolate cheese{cup}cakes per request, presents on a new patio, balloons & streamers, new toys to construct, and happy times with our family.  I even put the finishing touches on the Beach Bear birthday treats Gavin will share at school tomorrow.
{Kindergarten Birthday Treat}

This birthday was just the transformation we needed to lift our spirits and put today back into perspective.

    Katie, so glad you were given a bright spot to focus on during this time in your journey.
    I think maternal (and paternal!) insticts are such a gift from God...it gives us the ability to give love to all of our children, at the same time!
