Happy Birthday to my Faith! You will recognize our family traditions. First, there are the flowers from Daddy! This year she was surprised with beautiful roses. We start this once our girls turn twelve.
Choosing the dinner menu is also something the kids look forward to. A taco dinner is one of Faith’s favorite meals. This particular one has been requested over and over through the years, since I first put it together for a blog post for the Tyson brand. I love when my inventions turn into family favorites! Here is her menu:
Tyson Chicken Fry Tacos with Black Bean Mango Salsa
Tres Leches Cake, from scratch!
Mexican Bottled Sangria Senorial
And here is the family on her 17th birthday, minus the mom of course. 🙂 They will never look like this again. I know I need to jump into more of the photos, but I’m so glad for this tradition of taking the photo of the family around the table!
Seventeen years old! To think that when I started my blog she was just nine! It has been such a joy to watch Faith grow up. My heart swells as I think of her through the years. From the battle of the wills to teaching her to read (have mercy), from the tween struggles to beautiful, kind, caring (almost) adult–it feels like a miracle for this mom who had no idea what she was getting into when she brought this baby home from the hospital.
Faith is known among her siblings as the nicest! She will consistently put her own things aside to help one of them, play a game, or just chat. She is patient with the younger ones and so tender-hearted. She exemplifies a strong desire to do what is right. She listens to counsel and works on her faults. Faith studies hard and loves to learn. I am so blessed to call her daughter and friend!
Happy Birthday, Faith!
Happy birthday to your dear Faith. Love the flowers tradition. I am certain I have been reading since you began your blog. You need a timer on your camera so you can get in there, at the table!!
Her character sure reflects her name! (or vice versa) ❤️🙏🎉🌷🎂🎁🎈
Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for reading and for taking the time to comment. You made my day. 🙂 Jumping in the photos is such a struggle for me!!! Especially when it’s a birthday like this because everyone is dying to eat and the photos prolong the agony. lol Still, I do try to remember.
Awww, Happy Birthday to her. What a beautiful dedication to her. Hope she had a great day.
Happy birthday to her! Hope she had a great birthday. Looks like you all really enjoyed yourselves!

Looks like you’re blessed to have not only a lovely daughter, but a good one too. Happy Belated Birthday to Faith!
