Happy Birthday to my Sweet Girl....

My sweet girl,

I want you to remember on your special day,
you are so loved.

While I hate how quickly the years go by,
I am pleased to see what a beautiful young lady
you are growing into with each passing year.

Starting at the begining...
We waited several years for your arrival into our family.
You have been a blessing since the day you were born.   

Always surrounded by love.....

You were always such a happy baby, smiling with your round sunshine face!

Such an easy going baby, you could go anywhere
and still be happy
(as long as you were attached to my hip)! 
(You always were a momma's girl!)

I always loved to dress you little calico sundresses....
my country baby.
Now it's all about the t-shirts and jeans!

Always smiling, even when you were dragged around for
hours on end to your sister's soccer games,
year after year...

You were usually alright with it as long as there was a playground to run around on.

You loved to be with daddy was no exception,
 except that you always cried for the poor fish, lol.

You were always up for a teaparty....and came dressed for the occasion too!

Dressed for church on Easter loved wearing a pretty hat.

You were so excited to start school....
you learned to read before starting.
PS..I followed your bus for the first month of school......daddy thought that was funny.

Your enthusiasim for school hasn't changed, you are such a great student and your teachers always love you.

Your toothless grin could have charmed any mother into taking you on a trip to the city with your doll,
Then you decided you were a country girl and didn't really like it there all that much...

When you became the middle child, you were so excited to be the big sister for a change. 
Your love for your sister and brother is so heartwarming. 

You are so artistic....a crayon could always keep you occupied!
Cheering you on at all your sports...

you are such a
team player.

You are never afraid to try new things.....and are so surprised when you are good at it!

Your love for horses.....

you are a natural with them...

I believe you when you say you will live on a horse farm someday
because once you set your mind to something, it is possible.

I wonder if there is an animal on the couldn't love....

My animal lover would rescue every stray the world has, if you could.

We actually think that you might be part fish,
all summer long you are in a bathing suit and swimming!

Your love of history...and an adventure in learning about it.

You can be found reading a book almost anywhere....

You refuse to stop believing in Santa....
I love how
you never were in a rush to grow up!

You are never afraid to be silly.....

Your smile is so contagious..........

so is your giggle!

I know that you are growing up now,

and I must have blinked because when I think of you....

this is what I still see.
No matter how big you get,
you are still my baby.
I wish you a Happy Birthday
sweet girl and many many more....
God bless you,
just as I have been blessed having you as a daughter.

Love you to the moon and back child,
Always, Mom

    Many Blessings,

  12. What a lovely tribute to your sweet girl! She is adorable.

    I enjoyed reading your recent post and the resulting commentary about "Where in the world has country gone?" I passed it on to some powers that be and it also inspired me to get going on a little survey I had in the works about what people want from their favourite magazines and where they are fsiling us. I would love it if you would consider sharing it with your readers as I think we may be able to make a difference by voicing our opinions. You have started a wonderful dialogue on your blog and I think it is time to shout our wants loud and clear. Magazines are too expensive to not cater more closely to the wants of their readers.

    Here is the link to my survey. I would love it if you'd stop by:

  13. Happy birthday from Pennsylvania. What a beautiful young lady! Hope the next year is a great one for her.

  14. What a beautiful post for your daughter. She is adorable. I plan on following the bus to school as well, unless I drive my DS - our house is not very far out of town and the school is right at the edge. My son's 2nd birthday was the 20th too. Happy Birthday to your sweet girl!

  15. What a lovely way to celebrate...such sweet photos and music. Yes, they grow too quickly. I'm still trying to find a way to stop time...or at least slow it down a bit more. Hope it was a fun day with family & friends.

  16. What a beautiful tribute to your daughter. I love this post, Dee! You have a wonderful family. Happy Birthday sweet girl!

  17. Happy Birthday from Ontario, Canada! What a lovely post for your daughter. I have a 12 year daughter as well and their interests are very similar....especially horses, sports and country girl for sure!! The skating party was a wonderful idea and oh my, the food and decorations are so yummy looking and beautiful. Your daughter will never forget her 12th birthday! Have a wonderful day! Heather
