The Birthday Girl and Cousins

     Had to say that my oldest girl is now hoo for me but she is growing up and that is what these kiddos seem to do best. Rachel Ann is a blessing to me. She surprised me from the get-go! I had it all planned out that we would have all boys, no pink for me, I had grown up with 3 older sisters and always wanted a younger brother....ha ha. God knew better, didn't He?
     She has kept me on my toes and given me a run for my money with her loving to take off at break-neck speed if I'd let her out of the stroller for a moment, has always had the ability to make some really funny faces to make me laugh and has just been an all-around-sweetheart!
     Rachel can make a mean biscuit from scratch in a jiffy, doctors up a bowl of popcorn beyond belief and does the dishes like a pro. She can draw things so they look like what she intended (she didn't get THAT from me!), wants to sew her own vintage wardrobe and wear penny loafers! She even shares her b-day chocolates with everyone...she is a gem and a keeper for sure! And on top of all that she has a heart for Jesus.... Yes, indeed, I am blessed to be her mother and friend!
                                  Happy 14th Birthday Rachel Ann( a day late).....Love you!
