The Princess

"The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed."
Genesis 2:8
Eden's birthday was on Monday, September 29 but since we were at the Fair that day we celebrated it Saturday night. We were going to have our cousins come over but they couldn't come. To try and help Eden forget she wasn't having her cousins over we dressed her up as a princess for her birthday (make-up, outfit and everything! Her outfit was from a friend who had given it to her for her 3rd or 4th birthday) and treated her as such. She turned 5 years old!

The princess and her royal dining table!
Her dinner consisted of tacos, Mexican rice, chips & salsa and more!

The princess and her funfetti cake!

Opening her royal gifts!

Singing "Happy Birthday."

After we sang "Happy Birthday" and ate her cake we watched Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. We were a little hesitant to let her watch it (even though she picked it) because mommy thinks she gets nightmares from it.....so whenever we got to a scary part I would start talking to her and put a blanket around us two so she wouldn't be focused on the movie.


We had our Great Grandma (we call her G.G) over last night for dinner. After dinner we played music for her (she loves hearing her great-grandchildren and granchildren sing or play instruments) and then, as she was about to leave, Alexis and Eden did a dance for her which is below.

Aren't those dresses pretty? They belong to some friends of ours and we have yet to remember to give them back....hopefully we can soon (even though we enjoy them!). The CD Player wasn't skipping on purpose; there must have been a scratch on the CD.

Willingly Jesus',


P.S - On the State Fair Slideshow: The computer gave me problems on uploading it so I can't get it on here for you to see. Sorry!
