Last year, when I made the magnetic advent calendar I included a party hat for day 23 to represent my niece’s birthday! This year, her photo is day 23 of my photo advent calendar because she is celebrating her sixth birthday!
I love this photo because it truly captures her bright, happy and adorable personality. One thing you cannot see is how much she sings, nonstop. I made her a CD a couple years ago and she loves to sing the Ohio Express’ Yummy Yummy, which is a crazy catchy song that my sister and I used to sing as kids.
As much as I try not to mix up her birthday with the Christmas season, I have guilt that her birthday card is mixed up at the Post Office with Christmas cards and is delayed getting to her. I did not find a box for her birthday gift (if you have been reading this blog you will remember it took me a long time to find a box to ship to friends in Hawaii) so she will get to unwrap it when I see her for Christmas.
On a happier note, she’s on a school break and will be celebrating over cake with her parents and little brother. She loooooves cake & cupcakes, just like me and was a little disappointed she was not going to see me on my birthday then it meant no cake. aw!
Happy Birthday Sweet V!
