She is a wonderful big sister...

most of the time.

When she was a baby she looked exactly like her dad.

And she still does.

To the point that it's almost a little bit frightening really.

They say the eyes are the window to ones soul. 
I know this to be true.
With every birthday she has grown into the beautiful young woman we know today.
Both outwardly and in spirit.

Her talents are so numerous

and cover such a wide spectrum,

It amazes us. 
(And we often forget to tell her.)

 For instance she could be a hairdresser or baker if she wanted.
(This was during her creative learning phase.)

Today? She can whip up these up-does in five minutes flat...

while baking bread and biscotti at the same time. 

Her smile has always been a crowd pleaser, no matter what colour.

And as a young girl she had strong opinions about what she wanted to wear.
She has always been a natural fashionista.
With her fifteenth birthday looming, we know she's been looking for a change. 
And we are thrilled for her that she has finally decided on her... 

New Signature Look.... just in time for high school.


We Miss You Honey, and can't wait to celebrate with you in person.
We want you to know how incredibly lucky and blessed we feel to have had 
the privilege of being your parents for the past 15 years!
We Love You.
Your sisters send you Birthday hugs 
Smoochie kisses, 


Your Family
(which also starts with the letter "F") and
(who just happen to reside at Bungalow'56!)

    I miss all of you guys a lot
    And I can't wait to get home
    So that we can all celebrate together. :)

  4. Happy Birthday to your sweet girl. What a beautiful post and beautiful girl.

  5. There's an old Thomas Fuller quote: "If you would have a good wife, marry one who has been a good daughter." I have the feeling that you and the Agronomist are in the process of making three young men very fortunte husbands one day.

    Er, wait a minute . . . not any time soon, of course!!!! I meant like 20 years from now. Don't panic!

  6. Happy Birthday to your girl!

  7. Happy, Happy birthday G - you gorgeous girlie! You really are setting the bar pretty high as far as daughters go. I hope my two continue to bring me as much joy and as little grief as you have to your parents.
