Today is Beth's Birthday!!!
Well, it's official: I now have three teenagers in the house! Beth turned 13 today. We had her party Friday night, then today she had her favorite dinner and the cake of her choice (she chose Red Velvet Cake). I took her shopping Thursday for her birthday, and several of her friends gave her gifts, too. Tonight she talked to her Grandmama and Papa on the phone. Her birthday just keeps going, and going, and going . . .
Beth is our "baby girl" - we only have one girl, and she's the baby. She's had various names over the years, from Bitty Girl, to Beffers, to Bess, to Beef . . . she just takes it all in stride. Beth has her Daddy's personality, mostly quiet, even-tempered, and content in most situations. She's very confident and sure (not like her Mama at all). Her two loves in life are babies and puppies. She thinks pugs are the cutest thing going! She's not real girly, as in wearing ruffles and lace and stuff like that, but she's not a tomboy either. She's a joy to be around and a big help to me - my right arm!
Beth was saved last year. She has such a way with children that she says she wants lots of children of her own someday (that suits me!). Beth, Daddy and I love you and are very proud of you - Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!
