Happy Birthday Autumn!!!

Autumn Grace Trouwborst was born today 9 years ago!!!! I can not believe it. Next year she will be in the double digits!!!! This girl has by heart, we are so close sometimes I can't explain it, I can't imagine my life without her.

This morning we woke up in our usual way, to my sister Hilary flicking on the bright overhead light and yelling "Time to get up!". Autumn and I just moaned and rolled over! But then we realized it was her birthday and we both perked up (Autumn and I hate mornings, and right now we are sharing a room and a bed until the basement is finished). Rayne came in the doorway and I motioned to her to say Happy Birthday to her sister, she did, very nicely, with a smile (Thanks Rayne!!!!). Autumn opened her present from me, a Jungle In My Pocket set and played with it until it was time for school. The birthday girl requested pancakes in her room for breakfast so Rayne brought them up to her. All the kids went to school on the bus but Autumn and I went to Dunkin' Donuts to get munchkins for her class. Autumn was so proud to walk into school with 2 big boxes of munchkins!!!

This afternoon Autumn will be surprised to find her second gift from me . . . Roxy the parakeet!!!!

It's a great day, the day God blessed me with Autumn Grace!!!!!
