Alissa turned twelve.
She was looking forward to her birthday and had everything planned out. Brianna made her homemade french toast sticks for breakfast. Matt and I took her to Panera for lunch and I made her shepherd's pie for supper-making the mashed potatoes with cream cheese and garlic.
Matt and I had a very special time with her at lunch. She is a really sweet and fun loving girl. She makes all of us laugh with her wittiness and spontaneous sense of humor. What a joy to our family!
(I love this picture of her and Matt!)
We are thankful beyond words for our sweet Alissa Ashley. Happy 12th birthday Ali!
