So my oldest child turned 17 this week. 17!!!! SEVENTEEN!!! How in the world did she get that old? I am certainly way to young to have a 17 year old! But considering our 19th wedding anniversary is tomorrow, I guess it works, but man alive, where did the time go?
She is an absolutely amazing young woman who I admire so much. She didn't want a cake for her birthday, she wanted an ice cream buffet, so we got eggnog, gingerbread, pumpkin, hot chocolate and grape sherbet ice cream for her "cake" to celebrate. She has a scoop of each in her bowl with a candle on top.
She got these cute new boots and coat. She is such a hard worker, so kind, considerate and major talented--she sings, plays the piano and French horn and is so smart. She blesses my life everyday, and I admire her strength and courage. Sure love you Miss A! What a blessing you are in my life!
