Recently, we celebrated my Goddaughter Amy’s birthday two times – once at my place and once at hers. (The photo above is of her (far right) and her sisters.) It might seem like overkill to recognize your ninth birthday twice, but I think it’s just proof of how much family means to us. We can’t seem to get enough of each other. We’re always there for each other through difficult times (of which we’ve had a lot lately), so why not be there for the fun and joy, too? Besides, Amy deserves the attention. She’s sweet and lovable and she’s one of us. In fact, with her devotion to her cousins and her sisters (at least most of the time), she already knows the meaning of family.
To join our celebrations for Amy, visit the “Amy Turns 9” photo album. And celebrate your own family as much as you can.
