My Rachel Is 11

Here is the birthday girl yesterday!  I thought it might be fun to tell you 11 things about Rachel. 

1.  She is a sweet and sensitive girl, who strives to please the Lord and her parents.

2. She loves her family.  Also interesting to note: She looks like Emily but is more like Lindsay in temperament and personality!

3. She loves animals, especially horses and her dog, Sadie.

4. She loves babies and little children.

5. She is very quiet, especially around people outside of our family.  However, she isn't really shy.

6. She is now the proud owner of a 8 gb purple ipod nano!

7. She is a very good baker and has recently mastered bread and pizza dough!

8. She is a loyal friend.

9.  She is a great snuggler.

10.  She is going to be tall - maybe the tallest girl in our family.

11. She has a great laugh!

How we love her and thank the Lord for giving her to us!  Our prayer is that she would continue to grow in grace and wisdom.  She is a special daughter.  We are so blessed!



    No she is not going to be taller then Me and Emma! We have it all worked out.

    I love your nano...Trade you.

  2. Rachel says more with her eyes and face than anyone I know.
    I love her.

  3. We are so proud of her. We have seen her grow into such a delightful young lady. We love her so very much and are so thankful that she is a part of our family. I am blessed to be her "boppi".

  4. Happy Birthday, Rachel!

    She is a beautiful girl, and sounds just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. You are indeed blessed.

    Have a great day celebrating!

  5. I think that she and my Abigail would be fast friends. Too bad we don't live closer!

  6. What a great post!
    Happy Birthday to Rachel!

  7. Good Morning My Friend,
