A Very Special Birthday!

Today my daughter turns 14 years old. It has been an incredibly wonderful journey watching her grow from a giggly, happy, baby to an awesome young lady.

A few reflections of years gone by....

My daughter is excellent at self-photos and they often turn out better than anyone else's! Here she was drawing with chalk in our backyard in Alberta. She was about 10 years old.

This was taken 2 years ago...we were fishing at a local pond and she fell in. It was quite chilly that particular day but she stuck it out ~ wet and all.

This beautiful photo was taken by my 4 year old niece two summers ago! With this kind of talent in the family I should just hang up my cameras right now!

Happy Birthday ~ Love your family

Thank you for your kind words, ladies. Julie, it's a great name for a girl, isn't it?! I don't mind being old and ugly because I have beautiful children ~ oh wait, in the middle of teenage angst! What am I thinking???? Ha ha ha, my kids are awesome.

Happy Birthday Kristen!! As her proud aunt, of course I think she is beautiful, but she really IS beautiful, both inside and out!!

I, too, love her name. I still remember hearing it on the day she was born (which, strangely, I remember that day so well), and I was still pregnant with Gray. I loved the combination of Kristen Emily...so pretty and full of promise.

Hope she had a nice day...

She does do a great job and what a pretty girl! Usually, my finger is in the way or my husband is picking my nose when I try to do self-portaits. :-)

Thanks, Mum. However, I would like to clear a few things up!! The little cousin was 5 at the time, and in the first picture I was closer to 6, or 7!! Anyways, thanks again! I smell spring outside today...
