Rachel is 10!

It has been a bit since I have posted! One reason is that we were focused on Rachel's birthday! She is a Valentine Child, born at 6 a.m. on Feb. 14th! She was our Valentine present from God.

We had a little family party on her actual birthday. You can see below the happy girl opening her new cookbook, new journal, and lights for her dance mirrors. :)

Her big party was this past Saturday at Eternity Dance Studio, her dance studio. The owner/head teacher taught a Hip Hop class with some classic Hip Hop moves, popping and locking and break dancing. Even the boys had a great time! They had a freestyle circle and played a Dance Freeze game too. After cake and ice cream and presents they all went back into the room to dance to some "Toby Mac", everyone's favorite. What a fun party!!

Here you can see my attempt at a "Hip Hop" cake!

Here's the whole crew! What a fun day!

Happy happy belated birthday, Rachel!

B. sent her a card for Valentine's Day. After she mailed it I asked her if she wished Rachel happy birthday. She said "Yes." Then she wondered if she had but that she meant to. I felt so bad - B. thought about her and really hoped she had a happy birthday. If it did not make into the card - she sure meant for it too. Hugs, Robin
