Happy Birthday to my Singing Butterfly

Happy Happy Birthay Ayvri Dear.  Thanks for picking a simple birthday cake design.  

Can't believe you are already 9!  Where does the time go?  

Make a wish and then make it come true - you smart, beautiful, capable, confident girl!

One of my favorite things to do with you is to sing.  You have a beautiful voice and sometimes we tease you that you're Snow White because you sing everything at least one octave higher than it's written - you like to sing high!  I love to hear you sing and I love that you are confident enough at 9 years old to sing with the ward choir.  You're the only little girl there and you take your position very seriously.  What a beautiful voice you have, both in quality and also in kindness.  That voice gets you in trouble sometimes when it turns "demon".  We have worked together to keep our demon voiced under control.  I love to sing in the car with you and be silly - we play "opera" together and then "country" and just enjoy being silly.  Thank heavens for those moments when we two kindred spirits can just be alone and be ourselves together.  How I love you Ayvri Bell.  Always be YOU!
