A Happy Birthday~ {Evie and I, 5 & 50}

I still remember the day I first saw EvieClaire's face 
and loved her at that moment,
I saw her birthday was mine 
and knew in an instant I was looking at my daughter
waiting in China.

Today I took a few minutes to shoot some photos of us 
and I'm not even going to apologize for how many I'm sharing.
I just couldn't pick and as they progress, you see her personality shine~
 Evie is tiny in size but super big in personality
{makes us laugh all day long}~ 
 She has the biggest heart and mouth
{kind of bossy but usually knows what she's talking about~
 She loves making a mess and not really cleaning it up
{but she will, if coaxed}~
 Has THE best laugh in the family
{and will make you laugh just hearing it}~
EvieClaire, God sure blessed the world when He made you
and I'm SO SO thankful He chose us to be birthday girls together.
You are pretty much the life of the party
and we can't imagine life without you!!!

5 and 50 are pretty awesome together!
