Yet another birthday girl has had a celebration in our family. This time Audrey turned fourteen years old. It was such a hot day, she decided to have a "melon cake" (which was simply a watermelon and a couple of cantaloupes decorated with daylily blossoms and coconut sprinkles).
Audrey loves birds, so Evangeline painted this birdhouse for her and put on a sweet mushroom bird~
And a new bonnet was just the thing to keep the sun off her pretty nose this summer~
Each of children is such a blessing in our lives, and birthdays give us the opportunity to truly ponder on the impact that they have on our family. Especially as the girls approach adulthood, we realize how short the time is to spend with each other, and we are more grateful that we do spend each and every day in the shelter of home.
Happy days to you, Audrey, and may they be blessed!
