Happy 11th Birthday Hannah-Banana!!


Happy Birthday my Hannah Banana!!  Yesterday, we celebrated Hannah at school....






Mrs. Armstrong prayed the most beautiful prayer - thanking the Lord for the celebration of Hannah's life, her friends and her family.




While enjoying their birthday cookie - the class played a hangman game - birthday style!!


We took a little trip down memory lane looking at pictures of the class when they were in preschool. (And I thought to myself  - the pictures that I'm taking today will evoke the same emotions at high school graduation.) Crazy.




She went and visited her past teachers .....


and her best buddy in a different grade....


and the front office staff.....


so much love all around!!!


and this morning, Hannah awoke to a streamer covered bedroom door - she had fun bursting through!


awwwww --- - tears....






Banana and her cousin buddy - Austin...


there was a little girl... who had a little curl.... right in the middle of her forehead...






Happy Birthday my sweet Hannah!! You grow more beautiful every single day - INSIDE and out!!  We love you and are so proud of you!!

Love those sweet pictures. All those cute curls. She was and is a beautiful girl. All of life is anticipation and memories. That seems to be what it is made up. Love the memories that you can enjoy all over again. And YES grand chidren definitely are the icing on the cake of life. Hannah I love you to pieces. I still remember that day when you were about 4 days old and I held you and rocked you while mommey took a shower and that began a huge love affair that is still going strong. I could just feel the love for you being planted in my heart. It was such a special night and one I will never forget.
