Happy Birthday Bekah! (one day late!)

Wow, I've really gotten out of the blog habit. I do want to get back into it, it just isn't high on my priority list right now... :)

My baby, Rebekah, turned seven years old yesterday! I can't believe she is that old. Guess that makes me even older! Ha ha... and Jon Paul turned the big 4-0 last week too. I have a couple of years before I hit that mark!
Happy Birthday Rebekah! I hope your day yesterday was great. We had your party on Saturday, the day before your birthday. You had 19 little girls come and celebrate your special day with you. You are blessed with such good friends.

I just wanted to say that Mommy is proud of you loves you very much. So, in keeping with tradition, here are seven things I LOVE ABOUT YOU!!

1. I love your meek spirit. You don't like to have all the attention on you and are content watching others in the lime light.

2. I love your servant's heart. You are quick to offer to help me in the kitchen and are observant to see a need and do it without me having to ask you to do it first.

3. I love your silly faces you make. You sure do like making us laugh!

4. I love it when I catch you walking on your tippy toes. You used to do it all the time when you were little. And you still do it every now and then. Maybe you will be a prima ballerina someday!!

5. I love seeing you get more and more brave about doing things in front of people. You are my shy little one, but you have come a long way. You even will get up on stage at church and help lead in worship!

6. I love that you love school. You have never complained once about having to go to school and I am so happy you are happy there. It also helps having AWESOME teachers - which you have been blessed with last year and this year.

7. I love that you love to be tickled. We have some of the best tickle sessions and I love hearing your laugh so hard you can't catch your breath!!

We are so proud of you and can't wait to see what your future holds. Enjoy being seven!!
