Lucky #7 !!!!

Cadence's 7th birthday was lucky indeed!  For starters, it's been going on for well over a week now!

The birthday kicked off with a girls' party at an indoor SMART playground.

A week later, we 'celebrated' with Santa and the Goodbrands.

And then the cousins came for playtime, pasta and the last of the cake!

This is how Cadence spent her last hour as a 6 year old.

And finally ... the REAL birthday arrived!
Aside from a birthday croissant, the prequel to her present, a birthday pencil, sharing the b day with her teacher, a girls' lunch and being tossed into the pit ... it was a regular Monday!

Today, the three of us celebrated 7 as a family.  We are in awe at how quickly time is passing by.  Our baby girl is growing into quite the little lady!

Cadence we are beyond proud of you!  You have brought more light and sunshine into our lives than we ever dreamed possible.  You are a dream come true for us.  We hope that all of YOUR hopes and dreams come true one day!  We love you peanut ... to the moon and back a million times and more!
