We celebrated Miranda's birthday last night with a family dinner
and affirmation around the fire after devouring the Oreo ice cream cake she requested.
Do you see that Birthday Care Bear next to the Birthday Beanie Baby?
Well, Miranda got that Birthday Care Bear on her 1st birthday 26 years ago.
And we make sure to include that Birthday Care Bear every single year
when celebrating Miranda's birthday.
When it was Emolyn's turn to affirm her Aunt Miranda,
she said "you're awesome and nice, and your voice is pretty and you're pretty."
Isn't that the sweetest ever!
Oh and guess what ~
that young man sitting next to my daughter happens to be her boyfriend.
And we could not be more thrilled!
And that purple crocheted hat that Emolyn is wearing ~
I made that when I was in high school ~ over 35 years ago! I know!
