Happy 10th Birthday Lexi!!!!

Happy Birthday to my beautiful Lexi. After infertility issues and never thinking we would have our own child, Lexi was born one month before Alan & my 19th wedding anniversary. We waited a long time to have her, but boy was she worth the wait!!!
3 months
March 2009, 10 years old
Lexi had a private skating party last Sunday. This is on the way to the party.
In the middle of the rink getting ready to sing Happy Birthday to Lexi.
After singing Happy Birthday they did the Hokey Pokey. After that they skated, did more games, ate cupcakes and opened presents.
After the skating party we came home, along with Nana and Poppy, and gave her our gifts.
Happy Birthday to you......
Happy Birthday toooooo you.....
Happy Birthday dear Lexi........
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOOOOOO YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
We love you Lexi!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Happy Birthday Lexi from Nana and Poppy....we waited a VERY long time for you but you definitely were worth the wait!

I know I am her Nana, but she is just as sweet as she is beautiful, what more could you ask for.....well I could ask that I be closer to her so I could see her more often, but that will happen fairly soon now.

Love ya,
Nana and Poppy ♥♥♥
