Happy #26 Victoria

Happy Birthday to Victoria, again I must apologize for missing your Golden Birthday that was last year. I don’t even know why we weren’t there, but I am certain that we weren’t. I suppose it was school related. I have just gone back and reread those posts, it was health and such. At least today will be a better day. I understand that you picked up your car yesterday. I bet it feels great to be driving in something so shiny and new. Hope you have many happy days with it, and stay safe on those North Dakota roads. I am always so worried about you out there is the west.

So, today I have run around the house and taken a few pictures of the pictures hanging in the hallway and other places. The quality is not the best, but to re-quote Aunt Adie, “It is what it is.” It seems we are never together for birthdays any more. One of these years we will have to all go to a resort or something on the birthday weekend of you and Jessica. Maybe in two years when Jess isn’t in session. I will let her know to start planning the itinerary now. Ha!

What can I say about Victoria that isn’t in the stories from the past. She is the daughter who likes to cook and nearly burn down the kitchen. At least we repainted after the incident, and I really like the color. She is also the daughter who likes to garden. I can’t wait to help put in her garden this summer. Maybe with a little one on the way, you might not want to go so big. On the other hand if you do go big and can’t handle it, that will be a good excuse for me to come visit on occasion.

Victoria is also the daughter who took enough junk with her to college to fill two dorm rooms then was paired with a stranger who did the same. Guess that is why she ended up with her own room by second semester. She is also the one who has a room full of trophies and trinkets left behind in our house. Oh someday it will be packed up and removed, someday.

Victoria was the child who threw away her bottle when she was barely eight months if that old. She did everything early because she wanted to be just like her big sister, and now she is the one who has such patience with that baby sister. I am glad that they have learned to be friends as adults. That is the one thing about having sisters, you have built-in friends, and they usually put up with you no matter how much you upset them. Believe me, I know. Ha!

So, take a hug from Jaxon today and know that your Mom and Dad felt/feel the same way about you that you do about him. Be safe in the storm tomorrow and don’t take any chances on the road. And enjoy the pictures below.

Here is what the day looks like today. Blizzard warnings on the weather station. Hope it dissipates.

    Happy birthday, Victoria! Oh, Lucinda, I did so enjoy looking at the pictures. Your girls are beautiful. Isn’t it fun to write these posts honoring our little ones who are now all grown up into their own lives?
