She's Growing Up On Me!!

Today is our youngest daughter Maddy's birthday!

I made her promise me when she was 4 that she
wouldn't get any bigger...

Well she has!! And I have to say that I am so very
proud of the lovely young woman she is becoming!

I am blessed to be able to be a stay at home Mom,
and have the privilege of homeschooling her.
She fills my days and my heart with delight just
being the beautiful girl God created her to be!!

Maddy has recently started a blog of her own,
which is really neat, and I think it would be great
if you guys popped over to Madcrafts to wish
her a Happy Birthday!!

It would be especially great if you became a
follower of her blog, too!!

I know she'll be thrilled!! Thank you ahead of
time for making her day even more special!
You all are the best!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

Love and Hugs,


  1. Hi Becky, Happy birthday to your darling daughter.

    Thanks for coming over to Bella Vista. I cannot believe how close we live to each other! How about this hot weather? Whew.

    So nice to meet ya.


  2. Thanks mom I love you sooooooooooooooooooooo much and you are the best mom EVER!!! Thanks for announcing my blog!!

    Love, Madison

  3. Precious Post...

    My girl, Adrienne, is just as special to me. She is 24 now and I'm sitting here wondering where the years went...

    Gone too soon!


  4. They grow up TOO fast!!! My girls about to have their birthdays also, I just can't believe it! Happy Birthday to your daughter!

  5. Oh my goodness.......they do grow up, don't they? How wonderful to have the opportunity to home school. I wish I'd been able to do that for my daughter. I had never even heard of it back then.

    I'll pop right over to wish her a happy day!


    PS......is that glorious little gal on your header the same little Maddie? :-)

  6. Darn...they never keep that promise to stay little do they? But no matter how big she gets...she will always be your "little girl"

    I'm headed over there now to wish her a happy b-day!

  7. happy Birthday to her and to you too. I know those birthdays are happy but make me twinge a bit as they grow up, but it is amazing to see the people they are becoming, homeschooling certainly has made me so glad to be such an influence on them and to witness them becoming adults.

  8. Oh Becky, she's beautiful...you have done a great job! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree...
    My Baby will be 24 years old on the July 5th...where does the time go?

    Love & Hugs to you my friend,

  9. I will be sure to stop by and wish your dd a happy bday. I'm guessing your youngest and my youngest are about the same age. Hope you have a good celebration!

  10. Happy Birthday to your sweet, adorable, beautiful daughter!!! I hope you had a fun day celebrating and remembering the years past. I will head over to her blog! What a great idea for her to start her own and to start writing and learning to journal!! Great mom!!! Thanks for all your prayers for my hubby. I'm just taking a break to rest from the stress of the past 2 weeks. I almost passed out last Saturday in the banquet hall when everything caught up to me. I'm feeling great now, but want to take it slow. You're a great friend!!

  11. Hi Sweet Becky,
    This is to wish Maddy a very Happy Birthday, and I will go visit her.
    I apologize for not visiting sooner as I have had some health issues, and after fighting it for about 10 days finally gave in and went to see my doctor, I am feeling much better now and am happy to be visiting again. Hope your summer is going well, I know you are probably getting the most best tan ever,

  12. Oh Happy Birthday Sweet Maddy! I'm popping over right now to see her new blog.


    P.S. Becky, Daughters are the best!

  13. Best birthday whishes to your young lady!

  14. If only we could keep them small. It is truly a blessing to homeschool isn't it??? I LOVE it. I love spending each and every day with my kids. It'll be over before you know it!! But at least when you look back over the years, you will see where they all went, and it was with you.

  15. How sweet! Maddy is too cute Becky! I look at all of my kids and wonder where the time went. I wish they could all stay itty-bitty and sticky! Oh the memories.

    Have a great day dear!

  16. Happy Birthday, Dear Maddy, Happy Birthday to you...


    Sheila :-)

  25. happy birthday maddy! Hope you have a fabulous day!

  26. Sorry I haven't commented sooner Becky - I haven't been about much lately. Just wanted to say you daughter is a darling - I hope she knows just what an incredible Momma she has, because her Momma certainly knows how precious her darling baby is. Love and prayers to you always dear friend, Fiona x x

  27. This is crazy as the comment I posted when you wrote this is gone...have been to two other sites where people were saying that their comments were not posting!
    They do grow too fast so it's just important to remember to thoroughly enjoy them at whatever age they are (as I know you do)!

    blessings and hugs,
