LL's 9th Year

LL turned 9 at the beginning of February.  Here's a look back at her 9th year:

She turned EIGHT years old!

LL and Matt went to their 4th Father/Daughter Dance together!

She had her 8-year well-visit and is a happy, healthy girl!

We had LL's birthday party at Tiny Bubbles!

LL saved her money for months and we took a girl's trip to Atlanta to visit the American Girl doll store!

We did one of our favorite activities during Spring Break - went to pick Strawberries!

This girl loves to be outside!

First swim of the year!

LL got dressed up all pretty for Easter!

LL's 8 year old pictures from our family session were beautiful!


We kicked off summer with a trip to her favorite place - the BEACH!

Both kids have one thing on their minds when summer comes around - as much pool time as possible!

We celebrated Memorial Day at Grammy and Pop's house!

LL loved our trip to Calloway Gardens with Grammy and Pop!

Both kids were in Heaven when we got a pool for our house!

We took a fun day trip to Jax with our best friends!

Another thing LL loves in the summer is spending time at the water park at Wild Adventures with friends!

We tried to pack in as much fun summer stuff as we could!

LL loves the 4th of July!  Fireworks, swimming, and friends!

LL loved going to VBS with Cooper in our new building!

LL ended the summer the same way she started it - another trip to the beach (and she wouldn't have it any other way!).

LL got an awesome "back to school" haircut!

She moved up to the Elementary School and started 3rd Grade!

LL loved all the hype around the Solar Eclipse!

Even though she's a huge animal fan, we said goodbye to our chickens and found them a new home!

One of the biggest deals this year was that LL finally learned how to ride a bike without training wheels!

We took our annual trip to the Pumpkin Patch!

She loved going to the Air Show with Cooper and Ben!

LL was the cutest Moana ever for Halloween!

LL loves babies, so she has been smitten when Anna Reed comes to town!

All of the kids had a blast together over Thanksgiving.

LL and Cooper did a great job picking out our Christmas Tree!

LL loves all of our fun Christmas activities!

She got an award at school for Honor Roll!

She was a happy camper when we went back to Snow Mountain this year!

And, of course, Christmas is always the best!

I can not even begin to tell you how happy she was when we got an amazingly awesome snow in January!

She went to Avenger's Live for the first time and absolutely loved it!

We are so thankful and blessed with a happy, healthy girl who had such a great year!  I have a feeling that being 9 will be even better!
