birthday girl

It's been almost a week
since my firstborn daughter 
celebrated her 29th birthday!
She posted something on her blog about being  29 and holdin'
She  is her mother's daughter! :)
You see,
this year I celebrated the
silver anniversary of  my  29th! :)
Yup...she was 4 years old when I turned 29.
She was the first of our 3 girls.
Okay, she's her father's daughter too!
I was a cheerleader, but
my girls played basketball like their Dad.
They follow the Red Sox and even understand football!
I love the Red Sox and I call myself a Patriots fan,
but, honestly,  I don't get football.
She's a daughter, a wife, an auntie extraordinaire,
and she's not just a waitress, oh, no,
she is hardworking,
highly motivated,
 influential and inspiring,
 an amazing woman,
a wonderful friend,
and a child of God.
She's my girl!
Happy Birthday (week), Crystal!
Love you!
