They Say It's Your Birthday . . . They Say It's Your Birthday . . .
A year ago
we were in Minnesota
for a very special event . . .
And today is Her Birthday
Grand Girl Lucy turns one!
A tradition started when
Daughter Sarah turned one . . .
A hand painted toy trunk
Painted in the style of Holly Hobby
Popular when she was small
It's lived the test of time and Daughter Sarah took it to college with her
And on all of the moves after
And she still treasures it.
For Grand Girl Lucy
a joint gift from her parents and her grands
the chest a gift from her parents
the painting a gift from me
Painted in the style of Tasha Tudor
of prairie girls at Daughter Sarah's request
Besides the girls and the gardens,
Sarah's cat on the left
Dog Doogie on the right
And on the side, our two corgis
Dolly on the left
Our dear Ollie on the right
And Sarah's (and Lucy's) cat, Rome on this side
And the top is filled with flowers
and some surprises --
a robin, two chickadees, four leaf clovers, a squirrel and two butterflies
It will be fun for Lucy to find them
Lucy and her trunk
On her birthday
