Milestone: Gigi Turns 5 !!!

In 6 days our sweet, little granddaughter Gigi will be 5 years old!
It seems like it was only yesterday when she was barely 6 pounds.

She's a cutie, there's no denying it!! (you can call me prejudice and that's ok!) 
 Pictured above, 4 generations of "Johnsen women"from L to R:  
Yaya, mommy, Gigi (6 months old), GreatGrandma

It's hard to believe this little princess will be starting school!!!  
She has brought such JOY to our lives!!

Gigi is so loving and sweet, with the cutest smile and a dimple on her right cheek! She warms our hearts and we love being able to spend lots of time together!

She loves books and loves to be read to.  She loves camping. She loves being a big sister to her brother, Brody (2) and her baby sister, Hallee, almost 1. She loves to help in the kitchen. 

She loves to ride in Yaya's car and loves to go with Papa to get Yaya's car washed.  She loves to be tickled and she loves her back scratched (just like her mommy!).
She loves animals and loves going to the Wild Animal Park, 
oops, I mean the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park!

She loves to "make a plan" especially for spending the night at Yaya and Papa's house!

She loves to play dress up and loves princesses. 
Her favorite princess is Cinderella, so Yaya made her a Cinderella dress.  
I think we've watched Disney's "Cinderella" more than a hundred times; 
and it never gets old watching it with her!

And, guess where this special little princess is going tomorrow, in honor of her birthday, 
for the very first time!?!?!

(Shhhhh!  It's a surprise for our birthday girl!)  
So happy we get to experience the special day with her and her family!!

Yaya and Papa love you; we love you more--to the moon and back!!
