Lucy woke up early Wednesday morning, cheering her way down the hall..."It's my birthday!"
While they are planning a combined birthday party for all 3 siblings this weekend (their birthdays are all 6 weeks apart), Grandma Peggy and Gramaw Terry decided to go down to spend her special day with the birthday girl.
Papaw Kim always says Lucy's eyes just sparkle!
And those big expressive eyes have never sparkled any brighter than they did on her birthday!
One of my gifts to Lucy was a little girls' makeup set from the company where I get my big girl makeup, Limelight.
Blush and a brush, lipstick, and a pretty purse complete with pom poms!
Daddy Kyler and Mommy Kara got her a real vanity and mirror for her birthday...perfect for putting on makeup!
Lucy also had to spruce up her grandmas for the big day. Girlfriend LOVES her makeup!
Big brother Abram was at school, but little brother Daniel was always in the mix. Any time there's a camera around, he loves to be goofy!
Lucy always wants to use my big camera to take my photo too. She's really getting pretty good, even though that camera/lens weighs almost as much as she does.
And there ALWAYS has to be a "silly" picture too!
Lucy iced her cake...chocolate with white icing, her favorite combination.
Oh...don't forget the sprinkles!
Daniel is not missing out on the icing action!
One of Grandma Peggy's gifts was a trip to the nail salon for Lucy's very first professional manicure and pedicure.
So many choices......
But she was quite decisive (love me a decisive girl!)...bright red for her fingernails and dark purple for her toes.
Lucy was in girlie heaven!
"Does she want flowers?" the nail tech asked. Why...OF COURSE!!!
Beautiful mommy and daughter right there!
Final drying before leaving the salon...
Cake time...with the fancy nails!
One of the few times all day when Lucy wasn't grinning ear-to-ear...I think she was concentrating on her secret birthday wish...
We did get to see Abram after school for a few minutes. He was anxious to try out his new paper airplane design...
A milestone for being 5...Lucy is now allowed to have gum! Bubble gum, to be exact...2 pieces maximum every day.
She's been looking forward to this for SO long!
A wonderful day spent with our precious granddaughter Lucy!
We do adore...
...our sparkling birthday girl.
