A birthday girl
I loved that you wanted to have a "B" birthday this year. Boots, a Bible, a Bliss stuffed dog, a bike, and a Butterfinger bar. I'm glad all your birthday wishes came true. :) I can hardly believe 9 years has passed since I held that little curly black-haired slippery girl in my arms for the first time. I will never forget calling Opa just minutes before midnight to tell him his grandaughter had just been born on his birthday. I enjoy listening to you and Opa on the phone every year wishing each other a Happy Birthday. Everybody always tells me how much you look like me. I have to say, when I found my third grade school pictures in the attic recently, I have to agree! I also have to laugh when I see you protecting the frogs from your tormenting brothers. I remember doing the same thing when I was your age. I love that your most treasured birthday gift this year was your Bible from Aunt Marlita and Uncle Juan. It is so nice to walk by your room and seeing you reading from God's word. I hope you will always seek Him first in your life. I love you Liesel Charlotte. Happy Birthday!
