Today is my sweet Ashley-Girl's 19th birthday. I know it's so cliche to say 'where has the time gone?'....but seriously. A college sophomore majoring in journalism. She's beautiful both inside & out & we praise God for the joy she brings into our lives!
We all gathered at Maw's house today after church for a birthday celebration.
|Ashley requested Maw's apple crisp instead of cake. So, we stuck the candles in & all sang 'Happy Birthday'|
|Blowing out the candles.|
|Jon had my camera here & snapped this one......Love that smile she flashed him!!!|
|Ashley & her 'favorite brother'. ;-) See Alli trying to sneak into the picture?|
|There she is!|
|My 'Fantastic Five'. I love these guys so much!|
|So glad that Ashley C. could come up to celebrate with us this weekend!|
|And of course they had to do a silly picture.|
|Opening gifts. This was a Jane Austin devotional book from Maw. Ashley had seen this at Lifeway & really wanted it.|
|Chris made this poster for Ashley....how's that for an 'original'? The picture didn't take too well with the glare of the light.....but it's Audrey Hepburn over the NYC skyline & it says Breakfast at Tiffany's down the side.|
|Here's one of Jon's gifts that he made for her. She had seen this cool, funky pencil holder on Pinterest & hinted that she'd love to have one....so Jon made this for her. He also whittled her a wooden ring. It turned out SO cool!|
|Alli's gift....for her dorm room wall.|
|Ashley had to take some pictures for her photography class this afternoon & so Alli agreed to help her out. I LOVE this one!|
What a fun day we had. God has truly blessed us beyond measure with family & friends to share life with!
