Happy Birthday Sierra Belle!

Today is my daughter's birthday. I can't believe my baby doll is 10 years old! She has brought us such joy. When I was pregnant with Sierra my husband and I discussed the qualities we hoped she'd inherit. He wanted her to have his personality and my looks. Well she does have my looks, except she has his eyes. And unfortunately she has my timid personality as well. I know how hard it is to learn to stick up for yourself. Its really hard to do when you don't want to hurt anyone and would rather be hurt yourself than cause another person pain. I learned the hard way that I had to protect myself. Sierra hasn't learned that lesson yet.

Since our current finances prohibit us from buying her anything, we are taking her to the pumpkin festival in Circleville, OH. She's also requested I make her a chocolate cake to be presented at the time she gets off the bus on her birthday. lol. I think I can manage that!

I also have a job interview today, so hopefully I will have even better news once I get home.

Edited to ADD:

Well I am home from the interview and I declined the position. More on that later. But we had a little birthday thing, I don't want to call it a party because it wasn't, for my daughter. Here are some pictures.

The Cake. Its a chocolate cake with cream cheese icing.
