Happy Birthday, Carmen!!

Our precious Carmen was born
January 27, 2004.

She has always been such a ray of sunshine
and has given us so much joy.

Carmen is our first grandchild, but she is
also the first girl in our family.

Her love of fashion...

Her love of sports...

Her energy and sweet beauty
has been such a gift to my husband and me.

Carmen's grades are excellent and she is fluent
in English and Spanish.

She is active in her church.

She loves to help in the kitchen.

Having Celiac Disease is not easy, however,
Carmen has mastered the diet and is careful to follow it.
I love this picture. Carmen is in my kitchen and is wearing
an apron that my grandmother made for me.

We will travel to Mexico on Thursday where
our son and his family live
so that we can celebrate Carmen's eighth birthday.
We can't wait to see our girl!

Love you, Carmen!!
