Big Bad Birthday Girl

Can you believe that you are NINE?  
My Beautiful Daughter,  you are such a joy and a blessing to our family.  You have been such a great helper keeping our family on track with the "Real Food Challenge" that we've been doing together.  For your birthday you really wanted cake, but you were determined to make it good for you.  We found a recipe for black bean cake (no sugar, no flour) and you were such a good sport.  
You had lots of ideas for birthday adventures.  You wanted to go to Tuacahn and see Hairspray, or the Mormon Miracle Pageant in Manti, or to go to the Aquatic Center, or to go camping.  All of these either cost too much, took too much time or just didn't fit into our schedule.  You were so grateful and sweet though and kept hunting for an adventure that would fit our schedule.  We ended up having a sleepover and it was quite the party.

I'm so proud of the beautiful young lady you're becoming.  You are always the first to help out with the littler kids and are great about keeping things going.  Today during church you leaned over to remind me nicely to stop picking my fingernails.  I call you our "Little Mama" because you try so hard to take care of all of us.

We love you and are so thankful that you were born into our family! Happy Birthday Baby Girl.
