Happy Birthday Miss B

It's birthday time again, actually I'm a little late for this one. My oldest grand daughter just had a birthday, her party was last week. There was some concern that the hurricaine would cancel it but we never lost power so the party was on.

Since there has been nothing but guys in this home, it has been a real treat having another little lady to share some girl time with.

Our girl time has included making cookies and cupcakes, setting up tea parties, gardening and making flower arrangements. We even went to the ballet once, it was a performance of the Nutcracker, a  treat for me, I had never been. Sons never interested in the ballet, we did get to see a Monster Truck Show though.

She is the big sister to three other siblings. She loves to read, and is looking forward to school starting again. She helps me cook dinner when they come over and she knows just what the baby needs when she fusses. I told her she is in training for future baby sitting in a few more years. She also loves board games and tries to get one in whenever she comes to visit. Monopoly is her favorite game.

Birthday celebrations are so much fun, this was a big one, she was ten. Going in the fifth grade, turning out to be quite the lady. Thanking the Lord for this little blessing and wishing her a happy birthday she sure is a delight.
