Birthday, Beanie-Baby Bash!

Tonight we celebrated Pamela's TWENTIETH birthday. Pamela requested Spike the Rhinoceros for Baby David and Early the Robin for Baby Alive. To make the celebration extra special, I put the thirty-seven Beanie Babies generously donated by the totally awesome grandmother of the Black Pearl Academy crew (apparently, these stuffed animals are landlubbers). I wrapped twenty-two presents: two for the babies and twenty for each birthday Pamela has had a birthday. To make it extra special, I wrote each calendar year in Roman numbers and included the two-letter abbreviation for the state in which we lived for that birthday year. Pamela LOVED it. We were curious to see if she would open the presents in order, which she did! What made the birthday extra special was her namesake Aunt Pam (whose husband is Randy).

Your daughter's beauty has taken my breath away.
Happy Birthday!!

Our oldest daughter just turned 18 in February. She has severe autism. She is amazing.
I am still fighting for her to get a higher education once she leaves high school..wish me luck.
