~ Nine ~

Earlier this month, Little Lamb turned...NINE!  My baby.  My little one.  NINE!! 

She's sweet and smart.  Lovable and witty.  She's a very spirited child...WE LOVE OUR LITTLE LAMB!!!  She is truly - one of a kind.
Her Birthday Extravaganza included her favorite cake...German Chocolate.
The day began with Mass...to give thanks for life.

Then, Grandpa & Grandma (p) took her to lunch and a birthday gift finding spree at her favorite craft store...completing the fun-filled outing with a visit to an ice cream shop. 
Happy, happy, happy.

Treasure Map...
Little Lamb is blessed to have both sets of grandparents...so we continued the celebration by enjoying the afternoon with Grandma & Grandpa (m).

Treasure Hunt for B-day gifts...
Hand-made, fresh and warm, tortillas were enjoyed...mmmmmm.  So good.  No one makes them like grandma!  We all agree, hers are the best!

Birthday girl gets to sit at the head of the table...German Chocolate Cake - hand-made with love.

No time was wasted to "dig" right in and enjoy the birthday treasures...

Home, working on gift

For the past several years our Little Lamb has asked to visit a local pumpkin patch...it's actually a farm.  It's her tradition...Corn maze, panning for gems, hay rides, farm animals, pumpkins galore and much more!  We have visited this pumpkin patch/farm ever since Conductor & Butterfly were in Kindergarten...
