3 Year Old Ballerina

 Our sweet Hannah Joy is 3!!!  This girl LOVES her birthday! She had been looking forward to her birthday for quite awhile, always saying she would do this or that or wanted something "after I'm 3!"  She had very specific ideas about her party...what gifts she wanted to give her cousins, where to take pictures, what to wear, the theme, what to eat, etc...!  Maybe she will be a party planner someday!  I know she had a ton of fun at her ballerina party!

 All the cousins (minus baby Silas)...they have a blast together! All the girls have tutus on!

 The night ended so sweetly with Hannah and her favorite people...grandparents.  Papa Jack recapped the moments in these pics in this way...3rd birthday; getting a picture with grandparents on couch; Hannah, filled with joy, turns and hugs Rick, “I love you PaPa.”  Then sees Marla, “I love you Grandma.”  Then sees Leslie, “Oh, I love you Maggie.”  And with out preconceived plan, seems to suddenly see me, “Oh, I love you PapaJack.”  All as spontaneous as only a 3 year old can.  Then she realizes and points to each of us in turn, 1, 2, 3, 4 and does it again, 1, 2, 3, 4, confirming that we are the four that she loves and we are all there with her and she is filled with joy. 

 We love our sweetheart so so much.  She really does bring so much joy into our lives.  Happy Birthday Hannah Joy! You are a special little girl.
