happy birthday, lucy!

 Sunday was Lucy's 7th BIRTHDAY!!

She was so excited.

And she decided a while back that she wanted to make gingerbread cookies
instead of a cake.

So that's what we did.

And so the baking began...

Look closely on the side of this pot,
you can see Lucy and Isaiah's sweet little faces.
They were so tickled to stand there and make funny expressions...into a pan.

Being rather controlling, I naturally wanted to just take charge and
DO THIS all myself.
But the softer side of me, which shows up for an appearance once 
in a while...or at least on birthdays,
let Lucy just take the baking reigns and run.

If I'm going to continue on with my baking business,
I will eventually need a little helper.
And it's best to brainwash train them while they're young to do it your way.
What I'm saying is, I really was in control.
She just didn't realize it.

And she was quite good, I must say.

Then she got a call from one of her biggest fans, Brenden.
He called specifically to wish her a happy birthday.
He is so sweet that way.
He adores her beyond measure.
And she feels the same for him.
(Somebody pass me a tissue.)

 She opened presents!

 We got her this doll-head thingy, that was mostly MY idea.
Because it's one of my fondest memories as a budding little hair stylist.
I loved doing hair!
Not that I want Lucy to follow in my footsteps.
She's way too smart for that.
But, you's a good place to learn style.

And any great daddy will help comb out the hair of a new pretend friend.

 Back to the cookies!
It was time to roll out and press those little men!

It was only a matter of time...

My little Chinese Gingerbread man!

Happy 7th Birthday to my littlest girly!

Very fun.

Being in control without them knowing it? I like the way you think, girl! ;)
