Happy Birthday B!

Today is my middle dd 12Th b-day! So this blog is all about her. I did a birthday blog for her big sister K, and she wants one too. I have no problem with this as I feel she is a wonderful young lady and love to spout her merits (like any mom would-LOL).

The twelve years have sped by and I am not sure where they went. She has been head strong from the get go. Heck, she was two weeks overdue as a baby. She started out as a quiet child but soon learned that if you want to be heard in our crazy house, you have to speak up! Now she talks, and talks, and talks, and . . . well you get the picture. Since she is a Libra she is naturally creative and artsy.
Here is a picture of her being crafty at the Creation Museum, back in March. Don't you love that smile? (soon it will be paid for)

Every year when we have our one and only snow day, B runs outside and makes a snow man, no matter what! Sometimes it is little more than a pile of dirty white covered rocks, but hey, she revels in the moment.

I had posted last week that 3 little kittens were left on our doorstep. Bre took it upon herself to care for them, she even got up every two hours to feed them. I am sad to report that it turned out that they were only 4 weeks old and had Coxcydia. Two of the little kitties didn't make it. Bre did a lot of growing up this past week and I am soooooo proud of her. We still have the runt and am glad to say that she has responded to the medican and B's attention, most likely she will make it. So today on her b-day, we told her she may keep the little white bundle of fur for her own. What a lucky kitty.

Not a great picture but here is b and her new friend on the back deck working on school.

Finely, Miss B has a thing for boots. She had this old pair of brown boots with blue corn flowers on them about 5 years ago. Oh how she loved those boots. She wore them day and night. She even wore them a year longer than they actually fit! Sad day in this house when we finely had to put them up. Then her feet went through this ginormous growth spurt and our now the same size as mine. So we have had a hard time finding another pair to replace them. Most women's boots have heels way to high to be appropriate for a young girl. But today . . . of all days . . . on her birthday . . . .

We found them! The perfect pair of B boots. I had taken her to our local consignment shop to look for stuff for Halloween. When I saw these, they just screamed B's name - LOL They are so her when she is wearing them.

My middle dd is growing up fast and we are enjoying every precious moment of it! Can hardly wait to see what she will be when she is all grown up. One thing we know for sure is that we have given her the tools, and spiritual foundation to be successful in life, period.

Blessings, Beth Ann (proud mom of 5)

Aww, happy birthday Beth Ann's daughter! :D

I can't even imagine having a 12-year-old. But I know time does fly!

You sound like such a great mom - good for you and God bless.
