Today I am wishing my first born daughter a Happy 24th Birthday! Looking back over the years, she has come a long way from the chubby, blonde, blue eyed hell raiser I gave birth to. She started out like this:
and went on to be a loving big sister to Alissa:
and then turned to a she devil child. This was the mud pelting incident of her sister. You notice that she was really sorry for doing it ... don't you?
Things did get better after what I'm sure was a long sit in the naughty chair.
And then she welcomed another sister. This time she was older and much wiser.
During high school (#4):
Graduated with honors.
I am very proud of the young woman you have become. I am also glad that you are still searching and trying to fulfill your dreams. But I am the most proud of your greatest accomplishment to date:
Happy Birthday and I Love You!!!
