The Pixie's Party ...

Photobucket

Photobucket
Our guests received tutu's and wreaths and wings and wands for their party favors and the boys got Peter Pan hats,compliments of my seamstress Caitlin!


A magical day.Filled with laughter and love.Celebrating not only Miss Zoey but Caitlin's birthday as well.

Pausing to soak in the beauty of family and friends and the blessings of the moment.

The beautiful Ella


Ever mindful of the courage,perseverance and determination of one so very small.4 years packed full of obstacles and roadblocks but none would or could deter this child and her will to survive.



A little long but worth it ...catch Zoey's new word out ..."hi"!


Tonight,on the heels of such a joyous day,we were once again reminded of the fragility of life.Tonight,we pray for wisdom in circumstances for which there really and truly are no answers.Strength for a family facing,quite possibly, the unimaginable.Peace to anxious,worried and helpless hearts.But mostly we pray for our beloved Klein.An amazing boy of 12 who came into our lives 2 years ago and has led us ever since, with his unwavering faith and undeniable forgiveness.We love this boy.More than you could ever know.And find this journey to be so absolutely unfair sometimes.So absolutely unfair.

Omg, I could just Eat. Her. Up!!!!!! The Pixie is a beautiful little hostess, and if she said "hi" to me like that, I'd never leave. :-) Love the tutus, wings and wands! Looks like it was a truly fun party.

And on the flip side of things, my heart goes out to Klein and his family.

Tears of joy filled my eyes watching that video! She is such a joy! I am so glad that she enjoyed her birthday and I am sure that everyone else enjoyed it just as much!

Bethany said...

Aww, I love the video! She is so happy! (How cliche, right? LOL) Hope you guys had a great day, love the party favors!

Elizabeth said...

That video was wonderful -- she is just so stinking cute! Those pigtails, in particular, does killed me!

As for the rest of your post -- I just don't know what to say. I remember a time when Sophie was much younger, when I went to so many funerals of young children. Unbearable, really -- and I've never forgotten them or those beautiful souls. I will say a prayer for your friend, for his family, for you and all that you witness and bear.

Claudia said...

oh, and I forgot: My best belated birthday wishes to Caitlin as well!!

What a fab party!

Cheri said...

Just precious!!!! Wish we could have been there!...Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Tina said...

Tears of joy watching that video,I really have very few words right now except that as I watched Zoey I realised what true joy and happiness is and how far removed I am from my life of 2 1/2 years ago and how very thankful I am for that. I love that little princess of yours, she continues to teach me many invaluable lessons.

Also want to say how very very beautiful she looks in her fairy dress, her face all lit up with happiness.

Mama Mason-Mann said...
