21 years

Our baby girl, Tori, turned 21 on October 16th.
It's quite weird that our children are both legal adults now. It seems so surreal.

Here she is opening up her birthday card from her daddy & me. That's my futile attempt at drawing a bird. (Tori calls me momma bird & I call her bebe bird)

She seemed confused when she was looking at the gift was an airplane ticket from Little Rock to Spain.
Silly girl thought it was real for a moment (it was dark in the restaurant) She was thinking OMG! You bought me a ticket...Um, I haven't picked the days yet....
We are buying her round trip ticket to Spain so she can visit her sister this summer for a month. They will be backpacking around Europe! Look at that smile...I think she liked her gift!

Tori didn't order a drink on her 21st (she actually was feeling a bit under the weather) but Bonefish gave her a box of chocolates!

We went back to Grandma's house and had birthday cake.

I wonder what she wished for?!

Daddy & his baby monkey!

Momma & her bebe bird!

Grandma & Tori!!!

Nick, Tori, Me, & John

It was a great night. But honestly, if felt weird not having Meg there to celebrate with us. I know it was hard on Tori. My girls are best friends, they are twin souls.

Happy Birthday, Sweet Tori!

Best present ever, I am sure!

What a bittersweet milestone for you...I'm holding onto my babies for as long as I can, but time has a way of marching right on by, doesn't it?


Happy Birthday, Tori!
