Christiana's 14th Birthday

Today is our oldest daughter, Christiana's, 14th birthday. I can't believe it's been 14 years already. Where has the time gone? I am so proud of her and all her accomplishments over this last year. She is a joy to be around and the life of the party. She is beautiful inside and out and I hope she realizes how blessed our family is to have her in it. I pray that God will bless her all the days of her life and that she will continually seek His face.

Today we decorated the dining room for her with streamers, signs and balloons. She chooses all her favorite meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner and then tonight we have cake, ice cream and presents. The little kids like going to get her a little something from the dollar store and they all make homemade birthday cards for her. We try to make her feel special all day so that she realizes how special she really is to our family.

In case you're wondering, before the day was over we all had the stomach bug. I was the last one to catch it around midnight last night. It is a 12 hour bug so everyone is better but weak because it completely wipes you out. Christiana got sick last night so she is not spending her birthday sick, just weak. She is enjoying all her birthday meals, just in smaller portions.

So, Happy Birthday Christiana. I Love You So Much.

  1. Those 12 hour bugs can sure be rough. Glad you're all feeling better. So glad that Christiana felt better for her birthday. She is such a sweetheart. Can't wait to see all of you at the end of the month.
