My sister's 12th Birthday!

Hello my friends of the blogging world. :) Today I have exciting news, and I thought I would share it with everyone. My youngest sister, Maria Rose had a birthday today. Well, technically yesterday since I am writing this past midnight, but it still feels like today. :) Anyway, her birthday is June 10Th, and she turned 12 years old. My baby sissy is growing up so fast. I can't believe next year she will be a teenager. That just blows me away. All of my siblings are growing up and becoming who they are, and it's so incredible to be able to watch that happen. I don't get to see them as much as I would like to be it I live three and a half hours away, but it's always such a joy to see them when I do go visit. I am trying to work out at least one if not two of my sisters can come visit me sometime soon. Since school is out they are free to travel, and stay with their big sissy. I cannot wait! :D I have lots of things planned for us, and I know we will have a great time. My sisters are my best friends (and so is Jeremiah lol), and I love to spend time with them.
Anyway, to get back to Maria Rose's birthday. She did not have her party today, but is going to have it Sunday when her friends can come over. I called her today to wish her a happy birthday, and she loved it. I was the first person to call her, and make her day. :) She told me about all the gifts she had gotten, and she is just so adorable. I remember the day she was born. My siblings and I were over at my grandparent's house waiting for "the" phone call to let us know she was here. The phone must have rang a hundred times or so it seemed that day. Finally, my dad called in the afternoon announcing that Maria Rose was here. We all got ready, and went to the hospital to greet our new little sister into the world.
She has always been a kind spirited, independent, loving little girl. She has the cutest smile, and she will just giggle all the time. :)
Her name was the first name Mama decided to call her by her first and middle name. She wanted everyone to call her Maria Rose although many people didn't. Mama gave her a nickname, Rosebud. She used to say, "she is my little Rosebud". Now people who know Maria Rose well just shorten it to Rose most of the time.
Well, I should go now, but I just wanted to let you know what a special day this is. (Oh also exactly 3 years since my graduation if any of you wanted to know lol). She is our little Rosebud, and always will be. I love you Maria Rose, and I hope you had the best birthday ever. Can't wait to see you! Love you!!!
