Happy Happy Birthday Elin, Dear!

Wow! A whole year has gone by since we've been blessed with Baby Elin! She has been such a joy in our home. She is sweet, and easy-going. She loves to follow everyone around, and is trying her hardest to keep up with the craziness of the Burkinshaw household. We are so lucky to have her with us! Things Elin has done in her short little life include walking, saying "uh-oh", shaking her head when she doesn't want something, drinking milk, eating almost everything and anything, playing "hide-and-seek", and climbing. She loves to climb the little table and the slide. She can almost get on the couch by herself. Elin is a busy little girl, but that's okay 'cause she fits right in! Well Elin, this is your life!

After a few tumbles off the table, she's a little more cautious when standing.

Easy-going. Aislee is coloring on her with chalk

She's a Burkinshaw, and loves to vacuum!

Happy birthday!

One year older and wiser, too!

Happy birthday to you!
And, Paul and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on the 27th--Ice cream and a movie after the kids were asleep.
