Happy Birthday !

    
                             Happy Birthday Krista!


Today is my daughter's birthday. She is one who celebrates her birthday for at least a week - (a month if she can.) It's her favorite day of the year. So far the festivities are into day 4.5

so far there have been surprise visits from a college friend and her sister from out of state, dinners with friends out, the symphony, camping in Moab, UT (all organized by her boyfriend - you gotta love this guy!) and the best looking birthday breakfast I've ever seen... I really should be there right now!

 This painting is of her from when she was three or so. Hard to believe this little one is a grown woman now. When did all that happen??

Happy Day Krista! Hugs all over the place! maybe next time you and I will have some drinks and sing karoake to celebrate...

Beautiful paintings Deb, nice touch for your daughters birthday. Distance is always to far away. Hopefully next year you'll all be together.

As birthday honours go, that's pretty special. The most original thing I ever managed for my daughter was a PowerPoint card!!

Lovely paintings, lovely girl. Lucky you.
