A decade ... 10 years

we were just on the cusp of a new century - Y2K had passed by, who would have the first baby of the new millenium? I had a chance... I was due Jan 14th .... 2 weeks early and she could have been the first....but no, she decided to wait 10 more days and make her debut on her uncle's birthday!

It is so hard to believe that she is 10 .. I remember turning ten and thinking it was so cool I could say I was a decade old!

Happy Birthday to my sweetest Eily ... you bring sunshine into my life everyday with your love, compassion and caring for all around you!

eily is not a fan of frosting so her favorite cake is a tower of rice krispie treats! Regular, cocoa and fruity pebbles!
