Happy Birthday, Patricia!

This past Saturday, Patricia turned 11!!! We praise God for the lovely lady that our eldest daughter is growing into. She has a deep love for the Lord and also for others. What a blessing she is to our family! It's hard for me to function when she isn't here. :) We pray that the Lord would continue to bless Patricia this next year.

Patricia requested that I take her to the Tea Leaves & Thyme tea house again this year. My mother, sister-in-law & niece were able to join us this year while the men visited. Elizabeth was very excited to go to her first tea with her big sister. Lizzie really looks up to Patricia & I am so thankful that she delights in mentoring and loving her in return. We enjoyed a lovely tea:

After shopping at the local yarn shop (love that place!) with friends & a short visit with my parents, we met our families at a restaurant for dinner. It was a long day for littles to not have a nap but what a blessing to celebrate with Patricia. Here are just a few more pictures:

Patricia eleven? The girls miss her so much. Wish we could have joined her for tea. Lizzie looks so much more grown up. It must be all the jewelry she is adorned with. Looking at the pictures, I think Lizzie looks like you Heather. Only with blue eyes and red hair. Ha ha!

Birthday blessings to you Patricia! We'll see you soon!!
