I know everyone says this but I felt it so strongly on this birthday. I feel as if it was just yesterday that Anne was placed in my arms for the first time...and now she is 11! We decided on just a family party this year. She and I attended a Irish Dance Performance together then we came home for cake and presents. She is such a sweet girl and I honestly don't know what I would do without her. She is such a wonderful help with her brothers and is always asking what she can do to help. I am so happy to have her as my daughter.
