My not-so-little girl is turning 9 today! Happy Birthday, sweet Rebecca! Here's a Prima layout I made with pictures of her from a couple years ago. She's still my little fairy princess!
Every year I make handmade cards for my girls on their birthdays. Inside the cards I write a long letter to them sharing my warm feelings about them, about who they are, who they have become, and I tell them how wonderful I think they are at their new age. After they look at the birthday card and I read the note to them, I tuck it safely away in a box to be saved for them when they are older. Someday -- maybe when they are 18 and going off to college -- I will hand them the box full of these cards that I've made for them every year since they were babies. Here's the card I made for Rebecca this year:
*SIGH* I just wish she would slow down with this whole growing up thing!
