We celebrated Audrey's 11th birthday this Monday. We have a few birthday traditions in our family that helped to make this day extra special for our birthday girl.
Our birthday traditions actually start the night before the birthday. I say this birthday verse as I tuck the birthday girl into bed:
"When I have said my evening prayer,
and my clothes are folded on the chair,
When mother turns out the light,
I will still be ten years old tonight.
But before the very break of day,
Before the children rise and play,
Before the darkness turns to gold,
Tomorrow I will be eleven years old.
Eleven kisses when I wake. Eleven candles on my cake."
