And she's 6!

 What a fun 6th birthday Jenna had yesterday!
It started with a special gift from Daddy that he brought home from China.
Gifts from Daddy are so special!
(Yes, this is the tiara she made yesterday...still wearing it!)

 Beautiful silk dresses!
Perfect timing as the Chinese New Year is just around the corner!

 Next we decorated her very pink birthday cake with Hello Kitty.
 Such a girly girl!

 Time for presents!!
A new dance bag for her tap and ballet shoes.

 A pink MP3, preloaded with her favorite kid Bible songs, as well as Blessings and Days of Elijah.

 The boys bought her pink legos.  They were all about "helping" her construct.

 Love this bunch!  Their older cousin Kevin drove down with Grandma and Papa.
They love it when their cousins visit!

 And people wonder why I'm in bed by 9:00 at night!  :)
These goofies crack me up!

 Friends came over later in the evening for cake.
It was fun having all these kids together to celebrate Jenna's birthday.

 It's a hoot watching Jenna try to blow out candles.  She hasn't quite mastered the art of blowing...which makes her and us laugh, and then she really can't blow them out because she can't stop giggling and smiling! 

 Earlier in the day, Grandma, Jenna, Laura, and I went shopping and out for treats.  Then we met all the guys for dinner at Jenna's favorite Chinese restaurant.  The "cookie lady," who owns the restaurant, gave the kids a big plate of fried wontons, and then a big bag of cookies for Jenna to take home.  We laughed and joked all during dinner, and with all the silliness, you know something would get spilled.  (We just don't have to dwell on who it was.  Suffice to say, I was very glad I wore dark colored pants!  Very embarrassing!).  It was a fun day, and so sweet to watch this precious girl enjoy every moment of it!

What fun posts about Jenna's birthday! She's such a smiley girl! What a blessing! I remember all or her tumultuous emotions when you first met her. Just think of how far she's come! God is good! I must say that I agree that those were some of the most handsome servers I've ever seen!
