My Rhinestone Cowgirl is 6!!!

This past Saturday, Claire turned 6 years old!! It was such a fun and happy day...and hard for mama too =)!! She is growing so fast and becoming quite the young lady!!! Claire has had such a huge year and is such a blessing to us!!! There is no other girl like her and we are so lucky that she is ours!!!!!!! God blessed us on November 28th, 2003...I cannot wait to see what He has in store for her in the years to come!!! 6 quick things about Claire: 1. She is the best big sister! She is such a natural with babies, I hear that is a good thing! 2. She loves school and keeps us all in check in our manners, speaking, etc around here=) 3. Claire's favorite color is purple, but pink is now a close second (her words, not mine =)) 4. Has the memory of an elephant and NEVER forgets a thing.... 5. Loves to sing and dance!!! 6. Loves to throw a party as much as her Mama...nothing makes me prouder =)!!!!!!

Now on to the PARTY!!!! Claire requested a cowgirl party this year -so we had a "Rhinestone Cowgirl Birthday"!! Aaron brought over one of his horses and the kids rode it in our back yard! We broke out our boots (Claire got her very first pair from Nonna and Poppy!) and had us a cow girl party!! Claire is actually wearing an out fit Mom made for my little sister Claire when she was her age, it was AWESOME!! I always make an ornament for each of Claire's parties to match her theme for people to take home. This year was a fun blue ball ornament with a black cowboy hat! I have to also tell you that the cops showed up! We have a neighbor that well, we are not incredibly fond of and that is a post in itself, and apparently she was upset with all the cars parked (everywhere but in front of any driveways but our own) and called the cops!!! It was crazy, but you know what they say about a party....luckily the cop was more annoyed that he had to make the call and gave us no trouble! It was so much fun and Aunt Tara took tons of pictures for me..........
