Today is Emily's 15th birthday. She made her appearance a couple of weeks early back in 1997 while we were in Hawaii for her cousin's birth. (More on that Monday.)
Even though we couldn't be there for her birth, I got to spend a week getting to know her after we returned home.
Here's Emily pictorially 'through the years'.
Emily is a bright, beautiful, vivacious and smart young lady who we're always happy to see and always proud to hear about.
The only thing that could be better about Emily is seeing more of her. Happy Birthday, Emily. I hope your day has been and continues to be absolutely perfect!
We love you very much!
