Lily turned 4 on August 31, and we celebrated pirate style. She was insistent on a unicorn birthday party and tried her best to convince me she had developed a deep love for unicorns. I suggested a pirate party and the planning began.
We dressed up! Pictured pirates – Yes, that is my mother. Charlie, Nora, Lily, Abi Grace, and Morgan (or MoMo as we affectionately call her).
Charlie and Darby McCoy
Nora ( AKA – Nora Kat or Little Squirrel)
Louis was in charge of the treasure hunt.
The birthday girl – Lily Karen
And of course we had to have a parrot pinata.
Abraham Ewing – our only nephew. We have 8 nieces. Poor little guy!
The birthday cake, which I could have never pulled together without Andrea’s help.
Here is the birthday girl who change my life forever four years ago. Lily made me a mother and was an answer to many prayers. This energetic, loving, happy, sweet girl is a constant source of joy to both me and Louis. She makes us laugh and brings us great pleasure as her parents. We can not imagine life without our “sweet pea!”
