Today, my first born turns sixteen. It amazes me how time flies by!
It is so easy to talk about how sweet this girl is. She is strong, athletic, outgoing, beautiful, mature and funny. She is one of the few people that make me laugh until I cry and this truly is an almost daily occurrence in our home.
Abby, these first sixteen years with you have been a true blessing and I can't imagine my life without you. I am so blessed to have you as my daughter and I can hardly wait to see where you will go in the next sixteen years!
We had her favorite friends over for supper, movies and a sleepover. Abby requested Knoephla and Sauerkraut for her dinner, with a pretty cake for dessert. A lot of candy, pop and chips and some good movies... even a very special fairytale wedding to watch!
Her friends also wanted to do another photo shoot this year. They are all beautiful and amazing girls, so how could I say no? Even though it does feel like a lot of pressure. This year the theme is Natural Beauty.
This summer Abby will be going to Germany with her friend Meike, who is an exchange student. After a couple of weeks there, she will fly to Vienna and join up with two other friends (one of their dad's has a conference) and she will spend five days there.
Abby is blessed with some beautiful and amazing friends!
