Birthdays are absolutely special occasions and cause for a little indulgence. No?
Hannah just celebrated her 17th birthday.
These babies were delicious, a splurge, for sure.
In keeping with our tradition - we made her birthday chair. Hannah likes the "hippy-dippy" style, and when we found this birthday banner we knew it would make her smile.
along with "hippy-dippy" balloons. :-)
A new dress from big sister also made her smile,
and so did the new infinity scarf from big brother
She opened gifts in the morning - early before Dad and Matt had to leave for work, and then...later...
Birthday wish #2 - a sleepover with a couple of girlfriends.
I think the reason why Hannah is such fun to be with is because she is so joyful and easy-going. Often when I ask her about her preference for something her response is, "I'm good with whatever."
We are just so thankful to God for her. We are truly blessed to call her our daughter, but me even more so, to call her my friend.
Just for fun - take a little quiz (17 questions) to see how well you know her.
