HAPPY 17TH BIRTHDAY MICHELLE!!!


Today is my "baby girl" Michelle's birthday. She is 17 years old today. We aren't celebrating it till next weekend. But she is having a great day anyway. She has already opened her gift from her brother and sister. It was a gift bag full of things that match the decor in her room. Then she got money from her daddy and I like she always does. She always chooses money so she can buy what she wants. She is very frugal with her money and tries to get as much out of her money as she can. Needless to say she hasn't bought anything yet....so we'll be going shopping next week I'm sure.
.
She will also be taking her learner's license exam next week. We're praying she passes (although I'm a bit nervous about teacher her). Kristina isn't too hard to teach. But Michelle is so much like her brother that I am a bit nervous about teaching her. I had to give up on Ronnie after a while cause he about scared me to death. LOL!! He's doing better now though....so he says.
.
I'm very thankful for Michelle. She has been a real blessing to our home. She is very family oriented. Her favorite pastime is to spend time with her cousin Karlee. She spends so much time with her that Karlee and Michelle are pretty much "joined at the hip".
.
Thank you Michelle for being such a precious daughter to your daddy and I. You are growing into a lovely young lady and I thank God for you daily!!

My oldest will be "16" in July and my youngest just turned "12" in March. The years go by way too quickly. I'm realizing more and more that we need to "redeem the time".

Happy Birthday, Michelle!

God Bless You, Sis. Julie.

Happy Birthday Michelle! I love your beautiful blue eyes!

Sis. Julie, is she the one that had to go through all those tests awhile back? If so , is all well now?

Julie's Jewels said...

sis. becky....you are right...we certainly do need to redeem the time. Take care Sis!!

Julie's Jewels said...

sis. pam....yes she is. I guess you missed where I had given an update on her. Or at least I thought I did. The GI specialist said it is intestinal spasms. She has had to change her diet and eat more fiber. As long as she does that she does fine. When she doesn't eat enough fiber she has an attack. We are just thankful that she didn't have to have anymore tests or see any more doctors. She has been doing fine. She has only had one attack since and it was after they had been in Ohio for my husband's grandmother's funeral and she didn't eat much fiber while she was there. Thank you for asking about her and for your prayers for her. Love you Sis!!

Happy Birthday, Michelle! My oldest son turns 17 in June. Julie you look too young for your youngest to be 17!! and your pretty girl looks so much like YOU! :o) May the Lord bless you greatly this year, Michelle!

Julie's Jewels said...

sis. jodi...thank you so much!! Especially for the comment of me not looking old enough to have my youngest be 17. My oldest is 21. So trust me...I'm not a spring chicken..LOL!! And for you saying she looks like me...thank you. So many tell me she doesn't. My oldest daughter (18) is a spittin' image of me though. Thank you for your comment.

Happy Birthday Michelle I can't believe your 17 already you were so little when ya'll came to the church how time flies. your beautiful and I love you sweetie.

Julie's Jewels said...

sis. cindy...thank you so much for your sweet comment. She is certainly beautiful!! I've thought that from day one...but then I'm Momma!! LOL!!

Julie's Jewels said...

sis. marsheila....you are so right...she was pretty small when we first came to the church. Y'all have gotten the opportunity to watch all three of our kids grow up. I think the Lord has truly blessed my husband and I with the children He let us have. We've failed at times as parents but they are turning out okay so far by God's grace and with His help. I love you!!

Sandy said...
