Julia Marie is 7 years old! Rachael made her a fancy butterfly and flowers cake that was very yummy as well as delicious!!
A favorite gift! She loves to play her Just Dance game
Julia loved her cake!
This is the outfit that Julia picked out all by herself to wear to school on her birthday.
She was so proud of herself!
Its hard to believe this young lady was not too long ago this sweet little ladybug!!
It will never cease to amaze me how fast you are growing up. You are becoming a young lady right before our very eyes! Here are some highlights of you at the age of 7... you are enjoying the first grade. This year has not been without its challenging as you learn what it means to be a good friend and to have a good friend. You LOVE to read and are reading at a level above average for your age (about third grade). You don't like to sit still ever, you are always dancing, singing and in general moving. Especially when you play with your brother and your sister. You are an amazing big sister to them, it is rare for you to want to play alone, you try to find a way for everyone to play together. You have started including Matthias in your play with Ava more and more, even when he gets crazy. This makes us so proud of your kind heart. This year you learned to tap dance and are continuing piano lessons and plus you added cherub choir to your list of activities. This from the girl that cried and won't even participate in the Christmas program a few years ago! The thing that brings us the more joy is the way you show your heart for Jesus in how you treat others. You are very aware of everyone around you and are very sensitive to others. Thank you for bringing us so much joy! We love you Julia Marie (our sweet little "Doodle-Bug")
