Happy 5th Birthday, Camille!

Turning 5 is a very big deal.  Camille has been the most patient young lady.  She went to preschool this year and witnessed every single one of her classmates turn 5 before her.  As she left the house very early this AM for her day at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, she had the most enormous smile on her face.  This little girl had won the biggest lottery of all.  At last she was five!  Camille had a very busy year.

She wore make-up.
She gained the poise of a ballerina.
She held hands with famous people…err characters.

She rode turtles…and visited the zoo several times.
She had a Smurfin’ Halloween.
She made new friends.

She did a LOT of arts and crafts.
She hung out with princesses.
She showed off her wacky side.
…and her other wacky side.
She was a fantastic big sister to her “best buddy”.
She embraced living closer to her cousins.
She lovingly welcomed her newest cousin.
She completed an entire year of preschool in spite of being almost completely deaf for 3 months.
She danced like no one was watching.
She loved with all her heart.
She embarked on adventure after adventure.
We love you so much, Camille.  You are the princess of our tower.
You are beautiful inside and out!
Happy 5th Birthday!
