Her First Decade

You're TEN my sweet Halee-belle!

I just can't hardly wrap my mind around the fact that you are really TEN years old already.

You are the sweetest gift to me.

You have the biggest servant's heart and it blesses you to bless others__ So much so that you gave each of your friends some of your own money so that they could get something at the mall today when we all went to celebrate your birthday.

I offered to take you to the Cheesecake Factory and you asked if we could go to the food court instead__ you crack me up.

I told you you could have anything you wanted to eat and all you wanted was a slice of pineapple pizza and a Root beer. We so rarely have it, but you absolutely ADORE soda. I have a feeling when you move out on your own you might drink it everyday. :)

One of the things I love the most about you is that you wear your emotions on your sleeve. When you're happy, you're SUPER happy! And when you're sad, you weep. You're full of compassion and when someone gets hurt or feels sad, you care for them from the depths of you.

You are the kindest of sisters.

You tell me often that when you grow up you want to be a "godly wife and mother." I love that.

You're ten and you love horses and dresses that are good for twirling and American Girl dolls. You love listening to music (the same songs over and over again, just like your Mama.) You would ask Siri questions all day long if I let you. You adore dancing and you long to take gymnastics. Your favorite color is blue and you love Chai Tea lattes.

{THANK YOU SOO MUCH to all the grandparents and friends who helped Hal get the Lea doll for her birthday! I wish you all could have been there to see Hal's joy when she got to pick it out.)

You asked me to make you a video of your birthday and I was more than happy to oblige. You picked the song and the day's events and we all had a blast.

Baby girl, the truth is I adore you more than words could say. I've loved my first ten years with you but I'm totally looking forward to watching you grow into one amazing, godly woman who changes the world for the glory of God.

Love you to the moon and back Halee-belle!
