Happy 5th Birthday, Izzy!


Saying "happy birthday" to Izzy is extra special having once questioned whether or not she'd experience 5 years old. She's our cancer survivor and we'll forever think of the black day that was March 9, 2007 when we celebrate her life.

She came down the stairs as a new 5 year old, completely dressed with no blankie in sight (big girl stuff, you know) and grinning from ear to ear. That grin only stopped once the whole day and that was to blow out her candles. With a holiday party at pre-school (in which she traded with a boy to get her own gift back again :), her favorite dinner, swimming with Abbie, and a b-day bash with the Strattons, she knew she was the woman of the day! You really can't get much sweeter or more loving than this girly-girl!


Mmmm....cake....good!

I can't believe she's 5 already! I remember playing with her at my first Walker reunion when she was just a baby! :) You have such an adorable family. We love you so much, and pray for you often! (Colby and Rachel)

How fun. Is Izzy's favorite dinner NOT Cory's favorite dinner? (just based on his expression in that picture:)
