We brought her home on Christmas Day, and life hasn't been the same since! From the time she was old enough to put it together, if anyone would ask her when her birthday was, she'd reply "the day before Jesus' birthday". Some people think it's a bummer to have a birthday so close to Christmas, but she'll tell you just the opposite. We've always made today special, just for her...no Christmas presents here on Christmas Eve!
Today, we had breakfast at IHop with our neighbors who have become close friends to celebrate. It's always her choice, and she really wanted that chocolate pancake with the whip cream happy face on it. She ate it the same way she has since she was little...dug out the middle, some things just don't change! She left with some wonderful gifts and a full belly.
Happy Birthday, Sweetpea!!
