Miemie Is Six!

She's had a Birthday shout hurray!
Our MieMie girl is six!

Brynlee was so excited to have her first "friend" birthday party on the Saturday before her real birthday. She wanted a Halloween costume party with lots of games...

and a pinata!

Brynlee and her friends were so sweet to include the boys in their games. Nash and Ridge loved playing Ghost Ghost Goblin with them. When Brynlee opened the gifts and everyone sat down, Nash thought it was time to play again. He kept saying ghost and touching everyone on the head. They were all so sweet with him and thought he was pretty funny!

Bryn had so much fun at the party she wished it didn't have to end! She loved playing games and laughing with her friends. They were so silly and crazy and great little monster mash dancers!
Right after her party we had the ward trunk-r-treat, the chili cookoff and the yw cake auction. It felt like a marathon birthday party! Bryn loved every minute of it and was still so excited when we finally put her to bed that she couldn't sleep. She kept getting out of bed to come and talk to me about all of the fun she had. It was a fantastic day!

She was excited to get to go to school on her birthday for the first time!

Nash and Ridge are always happy to celebrate too! They love Miemie!

It's amazing that Brynlee is 6! In a way she seems much older to me because

a) it feels like I have known her forever

b)she so responsible

c)she is very smart

d)she isn't just the sister, but the other mother to her brothers

Just to illustrate: A couple of weeks ago the kids and I went to Nash's doctor appointment. The doctor started asking me some questions about Nash and before I could reply Brynlee was answering them. She told the Dr all about how Nash has been doing, the colds he's had, that he got new tubes in his ears, that he eats lots of yogurt, and that he still snores a little at night. The doctor just looked at her and said, "You sure know a lot about your brother." She said, "Ummhum, that's because he shares my room with me."

I love the way her mind works! She doesn't miss a beat! She certainly keeps me on my toes. We so blessed to have her in our family!

Some of Brynlee's favorites are:

What do you want to be when you grow up? A mom
