Happy 11th Birthday to . . .

. . . Gracie!

It’s hard to believe that my baby girl is 11 years old today!  She’s been growing and changing so much over this past year.  I’m very proud of the young lady that she is becoming.

She’s a great student who excels in math and loves doing brain puzzlers.  She is musically talented and enjoys playing both the piano and the violin (and she says she can’t possibly pick a favorite).

She loves retro, 70’s, things (like the shirts she’s wearing in both of the above pictures).  She hopes to one day drive a VW Beetle, or maybe a van like this one:

She is mostly a homebody, but there are some special places that she loves to go (including Disney World) --- one such place is the beach.  Often, she even gets to spend her birthday at the beach (this year is one of those  times!)

Tonight we’ll be celebrating with her supper of choice – lasagna!

I love you and am so proud of you!
Looking forward to another great year!
Love, Mom

Wow! Heidi-she has gotten so big. What a fun time!! Victoria loved retro 70's at her age!! I posted some pics from Victoria's graduation announcement on my blog. Did Ashley graduate this year, too? Is she heading off to college next year?

Happy Birthday to Gracie! I didn't realize that she and Emily were quite so close in age--Emily turned 11 last month.
