Happy Birthday to my Adorable Daughter

Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!

My beautiful, adorable daughter Elizabeth Ashley is 25 years old today.

She's my baby--my sons are almost 32 and almost 29.

Yes, it does make me feel kind of old--but it seems like just yesterday that  she was born.  They did have ultrasounds in those days :), but we chose not to find out her gender until she was born.

I adored my two boys, and I reassured everyone that I would be perfectly happy to welcome another little guy, but in my heart of hearts, I longed for a daughter.

When I heard the doctors and nurses say "It's a girl!" that was one of the happiest moments of my life!  Finally, lace, ruffles, pink, girly things!

Elizabeth has brought us so much joy in these 25 years.  My constant prayer is that God will continue to guide her life, and that she will continue to put him first.

I love you, Lizzy Boo!

For the first time today, I'm linking up with "Thursday Favorite Things", hosted by Katherine's Corner!

Hello! So glad to meet another Illinois blogger! Your daughter is just beautiful and she does look like you. I would like to follow you, but I'm not sure about the networked blog thing-a-majig. Any tips?

Hello! It's me again. I read today that Google friend is going kaput soon. That is why I added the linky. I don't know if that means we lose the followers we have and need to re-follow our favs or what. I'm new at all this!

Wow, I didn't know that about Google Friend Connect! Bummer. Not sure what I'll do about it!
