to the COOLEST
uncool 14 year old I know.
You are ANYTHING but “typical”.
You continue to amaze me with your beauty
(within and without)–
you are every parent’s dream daughter.
With much love, Rachel…
I’m thankful you’re “ours” for just a bit longer…
you’re the first of three very “special reasons”
I wish the years would go by more slowly :).
You make it hard to “hold you loosely”.
And a BIG, FAT SMOOCH to Ryan–
the most INCREDIBLE two-year-old on the planet!
They grow up so fast, don’t they? I wish it wouldn’t zip by.
Congratulations on raising un-cool, cool kids. They’re the best!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’m still laughing about the “Disease of the Apes”! Too funny.
A wonderful birthday GIFT – which can be opened and repopend for as ong as blogger allows! Thats a present ‘forever’
Happy B-Day! 14 is a great age. Of course, I think every age thus far has been a great age.
That is the best b-day cake I have ever seen. Will you make my cake?
Neat pic! Did you make that cool cake? Happy birthday to Rachel.
That looks like one yummy cake. Happy Birthday!!
She is a beauty! Thanks to the shout out to baby Ryan. I have to be reminded often of how time passes us by and to slow down to cherish the moments. Did I say cherish. I sent Nicholas’ 1st day of school picture this morning to a friend of mine and he replied back “cherish the moment”. I know you said I was a softy, but those aren’t my words. Kidding aside, life is good. Life is better with God’s precious gift of children.
Happy Birthday To Rachel –
I hope her 14th year is memorable!
Thanks Mom, for such a sweet note! I love you lots! (Thanks also for the cake, card and $!)
Thanks everyone for the posts about my birthday! I had a great one!
That is what I call a CAKE!!
Weee-llll…if you have to know the truth, no, this isn’t the cake Rachel got. I tried to take a pic of the one I made for her (it was chocochocolate with lavender buttercream icing) but our camera wasn’t cooperative. In my mind’s eye it was just as pretty, but in reality……not quite!
