Fifteen years old! I praise God for this gift that he has given us through our youngest child. The Lord is truly gracious.
Firstly, we started the day with the birthday breakfast: crepes (with toppings of nutella, peaches, whipped cream and maple syrup) and bacon - Miriam's favorite breakfast savory item.
Secondly, we were joined by Becky Carmickle (M's best friend) drove to Sacramento in our new Jeep Cherokee (4 days old) to see Mission Impossible on IMAX. (it must be a good movie because I didn't sleep during the show) Stopped in Shingle Springs for a refreshing Fro Yo.
Thirdly, her big brother pulled out one the classified hamburger recipes in his files and we had an amazing birthday dinner - Lewis Style NorCal Burgers! And that was just to prepare Miriam to open her amazing presents.
Fourthly, we sang the obligatory happy birthday song with the obligatory candle - unfortunately we had none of the traditional birthday candles so we used what was available. It worked! We got to eat a yummy Carrot Cake.
It was very nice that her brother was home. It makes all the difference in the world when two or more of my kids are together. Even Shannon who is in a far far away state was on the phone in celebration of Miriam.
