Happy 11th Birthday, Abby!!

Abigail Ann
9 pounds 2 ounces
22 inches long

I honestly can't believe that was 11 years ago! How does the time go by so fast?!

We really didn't have big plans for Abby's birthday since it was in the middle of the week. We figured we would celebrate over the weekend when Jon was home from work. The one thing that she did ask for was breakfast in bed.
And that's exactly what she got!

During the day we ended up watching old home movies. It doesn't sound very exciting, but it was so fun to look back and watch the kids grow up before our eyes! I think it was a great way to spend the day!

During the month (yes, the entire month) of her birthday, Abby is obsessed with checking the mail! Hmmm...I have no idea where that comes from... When she went to check the mail on her birthday, she came in the door, held up two packages and said, "Jackpot!" She was so excited to get birthday packages on the actual day of her birthday!




Abby is such a joy to our lives! She is an easy going, roll with the punches, low-maintenance, low drama, happy-go-lucky girl! She loves to play softball, hang out with her friends, be crafty, be on the go or just hang out! Such an awesome girl! I love this girl so much!!

Due to Abby's birthday being on a Wednesday (we had small group), we opted to have her special birthday dinner on Friday night. What did she choose? Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and rolls. Her favorite!
It was so worth the wait!

Next weekend Abby will be having a little birthday party with a few of her friends. I'm sure it will be great fun!

Abby, I hope you had a great birthday! Dad and I are so thankful for you! You mean the world to us! We love you so much and are so proud of the young lady you are becoming!
