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.

addie's sixth birthday

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.

  1. Huh…I don’t know where she gets that “spirited” stuff.

    Happy birthday to my future daughter-in-law!

  2. They won’t remember the grumpy. Only the mommies might remember the grumpy.

  3. Happy becoming a momma day to you, Casey.

    and a super happy day to Addie too :)

  4. Happy birthday, Addie!

  5. It’s not a birthday if they don’t have a meltdown! haha. my mother calls it “post event letdown” when they freak out at the end.

  6. Casey, she’s becoming such a big girl. She’s beautiful and strong willed and high spirited.

    I love these pictures and you.

    Happy Birthday, Addie
    Happy Birth Day, Casey

  7. Happy Birthday to your sweet girl!! It looks like such a FUN day!!

  8. Happy, happy birthday Addie! Love your pictures. It looks like only wonderful ones have Dec. 14th birthdays! (It’s my nephew’s birthday, too!)

  9. Happy birthday, Addie! :)

  10. Addie is gorgeous! Happy birthday to her and happy giving birth day to you!

  11. SIX! How’d that happen? Happy birthday!!

  12. Awww happy birthday Addie!

  13. What a beautiful girl! Happy birthday, Addie!

  14. Happy Birthday to Addie!! Love the picture where she’s hugging that DS for dear life. Girl knows what to ask for, man. She’s going to want an iPad next year; that, or a car.

  15. Those pictures are AWESOME. Love the balloons.

  16. Happy belated birthday, Addie!

  17. How much do I love those pictures of Addie? THISMUCH.

  18. Yeah, we have days like that too, and to be honest, I’m more than a little worried about Christmas Day because there are things her little brother is getting that she isn’t, and while rationally that’s the way things should be, she often has trouble dealing with the fact that some things just aren’t hers.

    That, plus all the excitement and anticipation and the partying means one overtired girl who could very well destroy Christmas if she set her mind to it.

  19. I’m sure she’ll remember only the good.

    Mine turned 9 on December 13th…and I was the one who cried on his birthday ;)

  20. Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl. :)

  21. Hey Casey,
    I had this epiphany about you that you may have already realized yourself but I thought I’d tell you about it anyway. Remember when you changed your diet because of gluten. Maybe that is the reason you couldn’t get pregnant. It is one of the symptoms of cleiacs disease. I know you said you don’t have celiac but more of a sensitivity BUT maybe that was what made all the difference! I hope so, then getting pregnant wont be a big deal next time…if there is a next time:)

  22. Sometimes a really good day can be hard on a girl. I know how she feels.

    Happy birthday, beautiful Addie.

  23. She is gorgeous.

    And no, she won’t remember the grumpy – just that it was awesome.

  24. My grandmother used to say “it’s not how you feel, it’s how you look”. This looks like a girl who had a great day… so she did!
    The end.

  25. Happy Birthday Addie. Those are fun pictures! :)

  26. I’m days late on this, but happy birthday, Addie – it’s amazing how much she’s grown, even if I’ve only seen her through photos.

  27. Happy (Belated) Birthday Addie! Sorry I missed it.

    The pictures are beautiful! Addie, you’re a very lucky little girl! Wishing you all the best!

  28. I’m days late on this, but happy birthday, Addie – it’s amazing how much she’s grown, even if I’ve only seen her through photos.

  30. These are the most beautiful pictures. You truly captured the joy of the day. Amazing and a memory you’ll always have. {Hugs to you!}
