Birthday Blessings

Yesterday we celebrated Sister #3's eleventh birthday! On Friday, she and a friend of hers got to go to a Family Fun Center nearby. They had a really good time together. Then that evening we had our grandparents come over for presents and cake and ice cream. This year she decided that she wanted an ice cream cake... so we bought one! (No, we didn't make it ourselves!) It was very delicious, though! :)

This is one of the gifts she got from our grandparents:

... Isn't he so cute?!

Here she is (on left) playing the "ticket version" of Deal or No Deal with her friend at the FFCenter. They ended up with about 1,500 tickets to spend on prizes! Good job, girls! (Sister #2 helped them out a lot with that! ;)

Anyway, it's hard to believe the youngest in our household is now 11 years old! My goodness how time flies. :) She has been one of the biggest blessings to our family and I love her so very much. May the Lord bless you and keep you, dear sister, throughout this next year!

I love you!
