~Happy Birthday Grace!~

Today is Grace's 9th birthday! I've been saying, "Where did the time go? It seems like yesterday she was a baby...She grew up so fast!" You know, all the things Mothers say! And of course, using up a little kleenex. I hope I'm not the only crybaby around here. ;0)



We didn't have a digital camera when Grace was born but I can share a couple of pictures from a few years ago....

Here she is at 3 years old, meeting Benjamin for the first time. She was so happy to have a little brother!



4 years old.



6 years old.



Here she is today...9 years old! If you ask her, she's practically an adult now! She is such a little lady. She loves horses, reading, writing stories, painting, playing outside, nature and going to yardsales. Wonder where she got that from? ;0)



We have a fun day planned. Right now we are watching Sarah, Plain and Tall. She got a new table for her room where she is going to set up all her art/drawing supplies. We will make a birthday cake together this afternoon.

I'll be back tomorrow with lots of pictures.

Happy Birthday, Grace!

She looks so lovely in her birthday picture. Very grown up and sweetness just radiates from her face.

Have a happy birthday Grace!

Happy Birthday to Grace! I love that name as it's my grandaughter's middle name!
Sarah Plain and Tall is one of my favorite movies. Don't I remember that it was once a Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie? Great story..
Looking forward to your pictures!!
hugs!!

Happy birthday to your daughter. She appears quite mature for her young age. The picture shows a quiet, assured young lady. Have fun with the cake!

Happy Birthday Grace! Or, as they say here in Japan, お誕生日おめでとうございます! (Otanjobi omedeto gozaimas!)

Your beautiful name, Grace, is also a girl's name here. You pronounce it ”Megumi" and the character looks like this



The bottom bit of the character is the character for "heart" (心)

A lovely character for a lovely name!

Happy Birthday Grace!!! She has certainly become a beautiful little miss and although I know you hate the thought of your "baby" being gone, you'll enjoy watching her grow into her teens then adulthood. Did I just depress you? lol Hope she's having a wonderful day and can't wait to see pictures:-) Hugs xox
