SyDneE is SiX!

Birthday pancakes: 5 + 1 = 6 candles!
With her Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Peterson
Taking a ride on her new wheels!
Blowing out the candles!
Look how she has grown!

I had to hurry up and post something before it is Oct. 9th. Today was Sydnee's birthday! We started the morning with some pancakes and candles... She opened her presents from Grandpa and Grandma Garner...I took some birthday goodies to her Kindergarten class....Dad came home early to put her birthday present together - a new bike! We also had parent-teacher conferences tonight so we were back at the school for a bit and ended the big celebration with brownie sundaes! I guess this is going to be the no-cheesy-birthday cake-year! Here are a few things that I love about our six-year old daughter:

*She has a crazy, spontaneous, contagious personality. She can have you crackin' up when you are supposed to be serious, especially if she is in trouble.

*She is mom's best helper - hands down! She is always emptying and loading the dishwasher, cleaning the mirrors and windows, dusting, vacuuming... but don't ask her to clean her room!

*She is very creative and artistic. She loves to draw and color with markers, especially the permanent ones on her lil' sister's body parts. She is also starting to get the scrapbook bug!

*If it is after 7:00 am, she is always happy. Like her mom, she is not a morning person, but any other time of day she is in a happy-go-lucky mood!

*She loves to show others that she loves them. Big hugs for everyone! Sometimes it feels more like a tackle for the little ones, but she is extremely loveable and if they are smaller than her, Sydnee loves to pick them up and give them a hug.

*Sydnee is someone that could be an example on how to live life - to the fullest! She runs fast, plays hard, loves strong, and lives every moment. Sometimes I wish I could forget the adult life and live the life that she lives, no regrets, no worries. I hope that this is a little something that stays with her until she is sixty!

Sydnee, your dad and I love you. I also know that your big brother has a special place in his heart for you, and Ella is just following your every move. She watches and you are a good example to her, most of the time.

Happy Birthday Sydnee!


  1. We love Sydnee so much! She surely has brought our family lots of laughter. We miss her and wish her a happy day!

  2. Whew...those candles on the birthday pancakes had me worried. For a minute, I thought Sydnee was the only person I knew who was 51 years old and under 4 feet tall!!!!! YIKESS!!!!

    Anyway, Hap-Hap-Happy Birthday Syd... and many more to come.

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SYDNEE! And to think I called one day late!!! Darn...sorry we forgot, we will call her this weekend for a late bday wish. Love you Syd!!!

  4. everything about that post is soooo true. I love you Sydnee and your happy spirit. You are so much like Addi with sharing the love. We are so lucky to have children like you. Love you
