Happy Birthday Olivia!

Today is Olivia's 17th birthday!  I became a mother seventeen short years ago.  Where has the time gone?  Olivia has grown to be such a lovely, godly, compassionate, and passionate young lady.  She is a blessing to her daddy and me, and also a blessing to anyone who knows her.

We just arrived home tonight from a week long vacation in Boston!  I have begun washing the mountain of laundry, and I have bought groceries.  We are celebrating Olivia's big day tomorrow, and I still have to put bows on her gifts (thankfully, Julie wrapped them), decorate our kitchen table, and make her cake.  Actually, since it is after 10:00 PM, I am going to make her cake in the morning.

I will blog about her birthday sometime tomorrow, and then I have lots to share about our trip.  We took many, many pictures, and we had a fabulous time.

    I live in MA about an hour away from Boston. Funny thing is, I never think of going up there. I hope it was a great vacation for all! Would love to hear and see pics of what you did.

  5. Happy Birthday to your sweet Olivia. I love her name!

    My dtr would LOVE a playmate. Too bad you don't live closer :-) She has golden hair too. What fun the two of them would have.
