You have indeed grown into a beautiful and amazing young lady!!!
You are very thoughtful of others.
You are always willing to pitch in and help out whenever there is a need.
You love our Lord and Savior.
You are a great sister to 3 sisters and 3 brothers.
You have a cheerful smile pretty much 24 hours, 7 days a week.
You are very talented musically.
You are a very good caretaker of the animals at the Bowes ranch.
You are intelligent, witty, and very charming.
You are a great cook.
You are a fantastic lawn mowerer.
You are beautiful inside and out!!!
These are just a few things I have noticed about you.

Just one problem. Your head is probably too big by now!!!Haha

You can't take all the credit. Your parents have done a wonderful job in guiding you every step of the way.

I love you more than all the birthday candles in the whole world. Have a great Day!!! Meemom

The moment I saw that baby picture before I had even scrolled down to see the current picture, I knew it was Lydia! I remember exactly what you looked like at that age because Robin and I took pictures of you the day we came all the way over to Glendale to see you. What a delightful day that was to share in your parents' joy! And today as we celebrate your birthday, we are continually delighted, especially to see what a beautiful young lady you have become, both inside and out.

Happy birthday, Lydia!

Happy Birthday, Lydia! This is the poem I leave for all my friends on their own special day. Blessings on you!
May all your years be filled with faith,
And strength for that which faith requires.
May joy be present every day,
Through peace and through trials fires.
May "Further up and further in!"
Be the brand of your advance
At home, in battle, and may Jesus
Always lead you in the dance.

Hey Lydia! Happy day-after-your-birthday day!

What an awesome time we had yesterday with you. You are so much fun and so sweet and I enjoyed our talks and your company.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and let us know how the puppy business went today.

And Happy Father's day to your dad. He and your mom have raised a wonderful family!
