#7 turns 10...Happy Birthday sweet girl!

Today our sweet daughter turned a decade old...and yes her dad told her the story about when he turned 10.Our kids love the tradition of hearing it on their 10th birthdays.
Rachel has turned into a beautiful young lady. I love this age because they start primping and well...just aren't babies anymore. I have seen many changes in Rachel over the years and I can't wait to see what God has planned for her. Rachel is my right hand around the house...Helping with Mackenzie is the biggest thing. Mackenzie will even cry for Rachel when she gets in trouble or hurt. I'll admit I do get a little jealous when she does.There are days when I have to remind myself she's only 10.Growing up in a house with many siblings comes with a lot of responsibility and in some ways aides in the maturing process.

Rachel you are a blessing that only God can give. You have taught me so much in the 10 years you have been in my life and I will forever be grateful. I can't wait to see what God has planned for you. I just pray you always keep your eyes on Him and look to Him to guide you through this life. Thank you for being who you make this world a more beautiful place! I love to hear your laugh...your laughter is contagious! I get more joy out of watching you laugh than anything you do.
I am glad we had a chance to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs today and I look forward to more celebrating later in the week with you and your big brother..he'll be 24!

I love you....Mom
