We have loved watching Arielle mature these past 15 years into a gracious lioness of God! Today is HER day.
Stacia and Bre stayed up late to decorate she was SO excited to show Arielle the streamers!
We bought a pinata and filled with goodies...both healthy and unhealthy....to share with the neighborhood children. We'd planned to do it today - but it was raining....maybe Saturday.
Stacia was happy to go hunting for birthday flowers.
Arielle had hoped we'd go to Hachinohe Children's Botanical Garden (or whatever that name is) but it was raining and so we opted for an inside outing. The girls hadn't been to the Misawa Aviation and Science Museum and the kids always love that....so off we went.
Next stop was the base bowling ally....
Barbie Design Center (Jared got her some art stuff too)
Krista got her books
Nolan got her a weapon
We got her a Japanese doll, a photo of her and her sisters and will find some roller blades.
One of Michael's famous creations
Jared got home from work and Arielle opened his gift of art supplies. She'd like me to find her some art lessons...any ideas?
Yuuki is not amused to find Nolan in her chair.
Games, jewelry making, packing....
Living all of life before the face of God...
