Birthday Celebrations

It was my 20th birthday on Monday!

My oldest brother Chris had his birthday last Wednesday, so we celebrated his on the weekend. Yay for birthdays!

Chris wearing the special birthday hat that Rachel made for him. =)

Chris's birthday pie. It is sooo good, but very filling and rich!
The pretty birthday flowers my mom got for me. It was such a nice surprise. =)

Rachel, the reader in our family, is patiently waiting for my birthday dinner- New England clam chowder soup.

Rachel thinks it was worth the wait and that Mommy did an excellent job. =)

This belonged to my mom when she was a young girl.

My sister Melissa has a birthday coming up next week- she'll be 14! As you can see, January is a VERY busy birthday month for us.

My birthday cake!

My mom made a delicous strawberry cheesecake.
One of my favorite birthday presents-I LOVE taking tons of pictures, and I've been looking for a big photo frame to hang in my room. My mom surprised me and found a beautiful (and very large!) photo frame.
And I know it's a bit bold, but I love the color red, so I was very excited to get this purse.

It was such a special day and weekend to spend time with my family. I am so thankful for the twenty years God has given me with them.

It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.~Lamentations 3:22-23

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.~Psalm 139:14

Happy Birthday, Sara! Thanks for sharing pictures from your day. They were so fun to look at. My niece Elianna was on my lap while I was looking at this post. When we passed the pictures of Rachel she said, "Oh! That's so cute!" And the second time she gave a little "Aww!". And now she's singing along to the song! Thanks again!
