Today at 6:23 p.m. EST you turned six years old.
To be honest, the day could have ended better.
Thankfully, there are pictures that tell the story of a good day.
A story of balloons, sunshine, pancakes, pink cake and a little girl who received every gift her little heart could have ever dreamed of.
Hopefully these pictures will overshadow the grumpy ugliness and tears that ended the day. And next year you will look back at this year as your best birthday ever and you will go to sleep in anticipation on December 13, 2011 wondering how in the world your seventh birthday could ever outdo your sixth.
Until then, I love you, my beautiful, strong willed and spirited little daughter.
