A Rose...

...slowly opening, slowly becoming a beautiful bloom.









...A Rose...that started breathing 20 years ago today.


...A Rose...with a beautiful name and a special purpose...















Happy Birthday Claire!

All our Love,
Dad, Mom
Sarah, Veronica and David

Happy Birthday Claire!!! I still have three years to go before I turn 20. Hope I can turn that age with as much grace and beauty of the heart as you.
God bless,

Happy Birthday!

Thank you so much, everyone!

Teresa: Yes, it was a good one. :)

Lady Kathleen: Happy Birthday to you, too!

Amanda: Yes, didn't Veronica's photos turn out nice? It's sure convenient having sisters that also serve as resident photographers. ;)

Mary and Laura: So kind of you to stop by... I always love a comment from my favorite twins!

Kaila: I just love roses (but then, what girl doesn't?). Mom surprised me with two dozen yellow ones, and I had such fun taking photos of them (although Veronica took creativity one step further and took the "rose-in-snow" ones she put in this post).

Vicki: Thank you! You are very kind. It's always such a joy to have you visit! By the way, if you ever start a blog let me know (and when's your birthday?)

Gregory: I don't consider you late at all. Continued greetings are great fun. :)

With gratitude,
Claire

Claire,
To answer your question, my birthday is still a little ways off. It is September 13; I will turn 18 this year!

If I ever start a blog I will be sure to let you know!

God bless,
Vicki M.

P.S. Are you going to camp this year?
