Happy Birthday, Evangeline!

Dear Friends,

We made a big banner,

Put streamers so high,
Blew up lots of balloons


And made a raw "pie"~

Cleaned up the house

From morning till e'en,

To have a big party 

For Evangeline!

Happy seventh birthday to our wonderfully, bubbly, silly saying Evangeline Rosebud Graham!



We were grateful to have a Pileated Woodpecker pay us a visit on Evangeline's special day~


  1. What a happy face! Happy, Happy Birthday! May you have many, many more!

    Now, I have to know.. what is a raw pie?? Interesting!

  2. Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, happy birthday sweet Evangeline, happy birthday to you! And many more! Are you eating raw? I've become interested in that too. Have you seen the Halleluiah Acres website? Lots of recipes there.

  3. Happiest of days to dear Evangeline!
    Looks like a wonderful birthday party! Wish I could have been there!
    (How special to have a Pileated visit on your birthday!)
    Blessings to all the Graham family!

  4. Happy Birthday little Miss Evangeline. I Love that little stove...very nice present for such a sweet young lady :)

  5. Happy Birthday you happy Sweetiee CUTIEEEE PIE!!
    Lots of Love and Hugs and Blessings

  6. Happy Birthday!

    I have seen one of those wood peckers near our place once in the 6 years we've been here, such an interesting bird. I hear if every now and then but that is all.

    Such a lovely birthday.

    Love Erika

  7. She sure looks happy...LOL! Happy birthday to Evangeline:-)

  8. Beautiful pictures! Looks like she had a great day :)

  9. What a sweet party for such a sweet girl! A very happy birthday to Evangeline!!! Love Heather & Anna

  10. OK (I am praying for discretion right now...) this is the part where I say "I love you" again...

    I love you!

    I love the way you celebrate your children. It is exactly what parents ought to do, and honestly, I cannot say I know of parents that do it better than you and Ken.

  11. And, of course, Happy Birthday to Evangeline Rosebud! Blessings abundant to her!

  12. Happy Birthday Evangeline!

  15. Happy Happy birthday Evangeline..sorry it's a bit late in the saying. Am curious about the raw pie, is it fruity? Love and hugs from the UK. Dev x

    Happy Birthday, Evangeline.

  17. Dear Marqueta (and Evangeline),

    I am sorry to be so tardy in replying to this birthday post!

    Evangeline, Happy Belated Birthday! If we could be there, we would sing to you! May you have many more delightful birthdays ahead!
