My Oldest is 15

My sister's family
Papa Shepherd's birthday Monday!

The family celebrated at Fuddrucker's after church. Here are the sisters.

This coming morning at 2:30am or so, I gave birth to my first daughter.

I just started this blog last year at this time. Here's what I wrote for her birthday then. Click here.

I was in labor all day today... 15 years ago, at age 31.

Alexandra Joy... are a JOY to be with
.... you are intelligent
.... you are quick to laugh and smile
.... you love your siblings by your words and attention (here's her post today about her little brother)
.... you are easy to talk to
.... you have a unique, fun sense of style
.... music is deeply rooted in your soul
.... you are a diligent worker, always finishing
.... you have set a wonderful standard

I love you in so many ways. God has a wonderful plan for your life and I hope your dad and I can help you realize it.

Happy Birthday Beauty.

We were pregnant at the same time! Keegan will be 15 tomorrow. It makes me very weepy and nostaligic!
