Post Birthday Pics

We started the day with a "Lia" breakfast made by the kids for the birthday girl: waffles and eggs (she could eat a dozen if we let her).

Then we met Daddy at Chick-Fil-A for lunch. After downing 7 chicken nuggets (plus fries) at dinner one night, we thought, "Hey, she must like chicken." And she seemed to enjoy it at lunch as well...

Lauren and Alex enjoyed some "cuddle time" in the booth. Actually, they didn't have a choice as we squeezed all 7 of us into a booth made for 4 :)

Lia LOVED opening her presents. She oohed and ahhed over everything. Wish I'd had the forsight to video it.

This gift from Nana looks like it's much needed after Lia's bath.

Mirror, mirror in my hand...who's the fairest in the land? (By her little stance there, I think she thinks she is!)
Who knew plastic jewelry could be so much fun? Well, OK, I did. Looks like we might enjoy cruising the jewelry aisles at Target together soon.

It was so much fun to be with her on her birthday and watch her light up at the attention. When we sang Happy Birthday to her, her face just glowed.
Again, she may have been the one receiving the presents, but we have been given the best gift of all.


  1. What a great birthday for such a sweet and special little girl. She is a present in itself as all of our grandchildren are. We are so blest and love them all. Thanks for bringing Lia into our lives. So glad to know you had a funfilled birthday with lots of love given to you. Love, Nana and Granddaddy (Mom and Dad)

  2. What's could be better than a birthday celebrated with waffles and Chick-fil-A? Glad it was such a nice day for all of you!
    Lia's smile at her gifts is priceless!

  3. Jada says, Happy birthday, Lia!! She also says she likes her hairbrush and mirror...
    Miss you guys,
