Finally FIVE and getting used to this stuff!

This post Should have been posted 2 months ago....wrote it...just never posted it! 

You have got to be kidding me....look at all that hair! 

Remember her birthday last year?

Doesnt even look like her!  Just a few days before this her eyes were basically swollen shut!  This is on the uphill!

This year couldnt have been more different!  Faye wanted to go swimming! 

Then we came home opened some presents!

And ate some ice cream cake! Fayes request!

This girl is amazing!  She is doing so well!  We feel very grateful.  Last year on her birthday we were willing to do whatever for her, because we didnt know how the next year was going to go!  I remember really having those thoughts, what if she doesnt make it to her next birthday?  But the reality of it, is that some kids wont make it to their 5th birthday!  We couldnt feel more blessed, and grateful for this beautiful girl!
