our Eden turns 10

I can't believe it, but our little Eden turned 10 last Thursday, December 11. In our family, this significant entry into "double digits" means she now can get her ears pierced. That painful rite of passage happened last Thursday afternoon.

Kevin Main did the honors for FREE and installed FREE studs. How cool is that?


Afterward we celebrated 10, with the Cheney's (a longstanding birthday tradition) at Eden's restaurant of choice, the Golden Gong!

Eden, at 10, is very much fulfilling her name. She is such a creative, fun, sensitive, DELIGHTful young lady with so much to offer the world and those around her. Did you know that Eden loves to cook? I mean she LOVES to cook! Always has. I pray daily that the hand of the Lord might be upon her to grow her and use her as a woman of God among her generation.

Next up is Sage who turns 12 in January. I am so freaking out . . . .

When you left the office mentioning her getting her ears pierced, I wondered what that meant. How fun for her. I remember when I got my first pierce - I had to wait till 16 - we made our girls wait till they were 18 (at least for the pierces they wanted - ears could have been earlier). But anyway, she looks cute with her new earrings. And it's great you get to keep traditions alive, too. Wow! You're kids are growing up. I just figured out how old they were when they moved here. I think I'm about to move into a home, I feel so old. So glad you are here with your family.

Happy Birthday Eden. Since you love cooking, I'll make sure slip one of my secret recipes to your dad for you to try out.

I can't believe Eden is 10! Please tell her Happy Birthday for me! And yes, she is such a DELIGHT! I always loved teaching her class at SLOCA! She always has a big smile on her face and is such a big helper! Hugs to her! (and all of you!)
