six years old!

Rilyn is six years old today!  She is our precious first born.  She is a leader, sensitive, a people-pleaser, and rule-follower to the core.  She loves Jesus and the Bible and we are praying for her one day soon to accept Him into her heart.  She is responsible, smart, and beautiful.  We love our Rilyn Jalie!!!  Happy 6th Birthday!
We start every birthday off with walking into their room to wake them up holding a donut with candles in it and singing to them!

wake up!

Rilyn is on the top bunk and as I reached the flaming donut up to her face while taking a picture, part of her hair singed in the flames! Oops! We decided 5 candles will be the maximum limit in a donut! 


So after we stunk up her bedroom with burnt hair, she walked into the kitchen to find it all decorated for her!

This face is worth all the effort!
Have to wear your birthday shirt!
She got to open one present before school (from Ella)-a Strawberry Shortcake doll!

Today is the last day of kindergarten too, so we brought cookies up to her class! How fun!

And when we got home, the cocoons her Oma and Papaw got her for her birthday started ‘hatching’. What perfect timing! Rilyn and Cole got to watch butterflies come out of their cocoons! Very neat!

As we celebrate Rilyn’s life today, we also celebrate God’s creation of new life!
