Her birthday breakfast request of pancakes got a candle.
How is it possible that our youngest is now seven?  When I look at Savannah, I think she must be very close to what I was like since I, too, was the youngest.

A glowing watermelon cake
I was glad she picked a watermelon cake, as I have been wanting to do that one for awhile.  I was thinking, "This will be quick and easy, right?"  Well, I believe the marshmallows must have been old, as they refused to melt in a nice puddle of goo.  Instead, they became a blob - literally!  I mixed in the rice crispies as best I could with the spoon, but then ended up having to finish kneading them in by hand.

Finally, the last bag has a clue of where to find her gifts
About two years ago I played a game for Shiloh's birthday of him having to guess from 10 boxes which one his present was in.  For every box that was incorrect, he had to stick a piece of gum in his mouth.  Savannah requested it for her birthday this year (except we did gift bags), and she ended up going through every bag.  I'm not sure if you can tell from the above picture, but her cheeks are bulging from all of the gum!

Mini Appetites?
We had a "mini" theme for her party consisting of miniature food: pizza, cake, donuts, cookies, carrots sticks, sundaes, and drinks.  I was so thankful for Shae-Lynn's help in making everything.

Our six children are truly a blessing from the Lord, and we delight in each one.
