My oldest daughter is 10 today! She’s such a big girl already—man, how time flies! We celebrated on Saturday for both the cancers (Peter has birthday tomorrow) with plenty of good food, fun play for the kids and I took CC and Cherise out to the big market to get CC a birthday dress. We found a nice cotton one that she really liked and at a place where they didn’t try to over-price the item based on us being foreigners. Her new favorite color is blue and I think it suits her quite nicely.
My dear daughter, I pray this year will just get better and better for you as you grow to love the Lord and others. I appreciate so much about you, but especially your willingness to help, sweet cuddles and words of love and appreciation. This is something I’ve seen you grow in so much this last year and I know Jesus will help you to grow even more. You’re a sweet little mother to the young boys and I don’t know what I’d do without you! Keep making progress in your school; I’m so proud of you! I love you!
The spread: CC asked for some of her favorite dips, including eggplant with mayonnaise, eggplant in tomato and onion sauce and a cheese dip. There were chips, toast, crackers, veggies and of course cake and ice cream afterwards. I have more pictures of her birthday gifts which are on Jo’s cam, so I’ll get those ready asap.
My birthday girl! Isn’t she beautiful?
Dressing up is a major part of the fun 😀
