In November 2011 I climbed aboard the gratitude train and posted a Facebook status each day in regards to what I was thankful for. I so enjoyed doing it that I decided to bring our family blog back with a little twist... to devote the year of 2012 to gratitude. This will be my platform with which to journal our thankfulness throughout the year along with just documenting the daily fun that is our family! Hope you'll join me for the journey!

Six Years Ago Today...

I gave birth to this beautiful 6 year old little girl...





I'm so proud to be this sweet girl's mommy... she brings such joy and laughter to our family! So in honor of her 6th birthday, here are 6 things that I LOVE about Campbell...

1. She is a leader not a follower. She never makes a decision based on someone else. She knows what she likes/wants and usually follows her own heart in life!

2. She is diligent in all she does. Whether it's cleaning her room, doing school work, helping with chores, or helping a friend she works with all her ability until the job is done! Each year her school has a "Let It Shine" ceremony which honors each child for a Christ-like trait that they possess. This week Campbell was honored with Diligence & Hard Work (whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord... Colossians 3:23). I guess this is why her teacher has nicknamed her the "queen of focus"!

3. She has a heart of service. She loves helping others. Whether it's helping a friend, letting someone take a turn before her, giving money to the poor... she almost always puts others before herself!

4. She is just plain FUNNY! She has a very quick wit and says things or does things that make us laugh all the time! I am often told I should write a book of "Campbell" stories...

5. She has a unique sense of style. She loves clothes and she particularly loves mixing and matching pieces to different outfits to make new outfits! Although I love this about her, it is probably the biggest area of disagreement I have with my younger child... especially at 9:30 every Sunday when she's getting dressed for church!

6. She is still my snugglebug! She loves to snuggle with whomever is available... mommy, daddy, Will or even Miller! She loves to get down on the floor and snuggle with him in the mornings...

Honestly, I could go on and on with things I love about my sweet girl, but I must go now to take her Raising Cane's chicken and cupcakes for her birthday lunch at school!

Happy, Happy Birthday my sweet 6 year old girl! Thank you for the joy and happiness that you add to our family! We LOVE You!(Campbell's first photo as a 6 year old before school this morning)
