Celebrating Our Daughter's Birthday!

Twenty seven years ago today, we were given the best gift a parent could receive - the birth of our wonderful daughter Tabitha! I still remember the wonder as I held her and marveled at how lovely she was. She was almost 6 weeks premature and weighed just over 5 pounds. John and I have been blessed ever since with this gift from God.

Yesterday we celebrated her birthday a day early, since there were conflicts with doing it today. She received some special gifts and we went to a Japanese restaurant for lunch.

Abby trying to help; now she won't need to borrow our vacuum cleaner!

 The cake was gluten free, nut free, organic and delicious! Since it was 1/3 the size of a regular cake, there are 9 candles on there, 1/3 the number of her birthday years! We also had Green Tea ice cream. She and John love it, but it's not my cup of tea. (ahem....)

Abby once again trying to help, notice the tongue? Then I got a great shot of her blowing out the candles!

Another gift, this one in an envelope I made her. It's a subscription to  Altered Couture Magazine, something she really wanted.

Then, a special letter her father wrote her, which she almost teared up over.

And on to the restaurant (yes, we had dessert first - I recommend it!) and unfortunately in both of these shots I got John and the Chef with their eyes closed :P

She left from there to meet a friend and see a local production of Peter Pan, which she told us later was terrific.



  1. You are truly blessed with a lovely, talented and kind hearted daughter! Happy Birthday Tabitha!
