Yesterday was Jane Anne’s 9th birthday. We celebrated all weekend: we enjoyed friends, pizza, monopoly, thumb-print cookies and the Muppets on Friday night, and then we had a special birthday dinner (grilled burgers, pasta salad, strawberries, potatoes, lemonade, and brownies) last night joined by Nana and Pop-Pop. Today I’m joining her at school to eat lunch with her.
I took this picture last night before she went to bed. She was happy after a several days of celebrating her and opening presents from lots of people who love her.
I am so thankful for Jane Anne — she’s kind and generous; she’s a fantastic sister; she’s a learner; and she’s fun to be with. I love her quiet spirit and the way she doesn’t let much ruffle her. I’m lucky to be her mama.
