Twenty












She is twenty! The little pink bundle we brought home to a thrilled big sister Madison is twenty. The tiniest of my babies, yet strong and determined, Peyton is gentle, happy, loyal, and kind. She is a best friend to all my children, in her special way to each. She is a hard worker and throws herself into everything she is interested in until she masters it. Case in point, sewing. A month ago, she couldn't sew at all. Today, with the help of her soon to be mother-in-law, she wore a shirt she made herself to her birthday celebration. 

As I look back on these years spent with you Peyton, I am filled with memories of a three-year-old mixing pumpkin bread and brownie batter, cozy pajamas, days outside full of bikes, hula hoops, bubbles, and swings, hours of pushing a little one on the swing set talking about holidays, and your complete and utter joy at the birth of a younger sister. I remember how your two-year-old self took care of your baby brother and all the movies you two watched together. I smile at the special bond you and your father share, and I am happy, thankful, and blessed. This past year has brought many blessings for you, especially the amazing young man God picked for you to spend your life with. I love you, my little Peyton Rose! Happy Birthday! Love, Mommy

And Happy Monday, my friends.
While we are at it, Happy June!

  7. Happy birthday! Sewing is an important part of owning a bridal store. Often the seamstress makes more money than the owner. Many bridal stores actually only make money on alterations, so get that girl sewing the more she learns the more money she will make.

  17. Happy birthday to her! She did a fantastic job on the shirt! Isn't is astonishing how quickly they grow up? Everyone tells us so, that it will go by fast, but the days are so long when they're little, we just don't believe it, then boom. You've done a good job though, such happy kids!

  18. Happy Birthday Peyton! Oh, she got a new sewing machine for her birthday. And look at the blouse she made for herself, fantastic! It looks like there's a lot of bunching that went into making that blouse, so I give her a lot of credit for that. She is learning fast. The cake looks Yummy. What a wonderful birthday celebration, and 20 years old a BIG ONE! You have such a nice family, Billie Jo.
