Happy 20th Birthday Lauren!

My baby is 20 today. We share a birth month and so many other things. She is like me, and not like me. People always say "Oh, you must be Lauren's mom!" I guess we kind of look alike too. But she is her own girl, no doubt about that!

Her sister made this gorgeous cake for her today while I was at work. it is small because we had our big family party last night with all the aunts, uncles, cousins and grandma. We don't need two big cakes, but it just seemed wrong to not have one on her actual birthday.Lauren shares a birthday with her Uncle! So here they are blowing out as many candles as we could get on one cake without burning down the house. Some for her and some for him. He is back in the shadows a bit so he's hard to see, but he is there:>)
Lauren has been a ray of sunshine and love ever since she was born. I don't have any baby pictures on this post because her father packed them away somewhere so he could build my bookshelf and he is at work right now, so I will just show a few pictures of her as a little girl. My little dancer.
And my little garden angel. Shortly after she was born I was at the plant nursery picking out flowers and a woman came up and said "she is the prettiest thing you will ever grow!" Well, I have two daughters and they are the prettiest things I've ever grown!
As a high school senior ...
And now in college, a young lady that her dad and I are so proud of. Happy birthday darling daughter! We love you with all our hearts:>)
