happy birthday pearl.

A slightly belated, but very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my favorite three-year-old in the whole wide world!!!

Haylee Grace, you are a girl after my own heart. We have quite a few things in common, but it is our affinity for all things cake (having a particular affection for frosting) and dancing that I love the most. You have the uncanny ability to spot cake a mile away, and you are one of the select few who share my passion for dancing. I pray you always dance like no one's watching. It is one of the greatest joys in life.

May this new year in your life be marked with new discoveries and countless opportunities for laughter. You have brought unspeakable joy into my life and I am exceedingly proud to be your Aunt Chie-chie. To say you're a blessing is a gross understatement, at best.

I love you more than all the frosted cake in the universe! Happy Birthday Hay-hay!

Haylee Grace is by far one of the greatest joys of my life - Happy Birthday from Paw-paw! By the way, the photo of Ms. Pearl at the bottom of the page is absolutely priceless! However, I am just trying to figure out the face - did she just wake up?
