Today is Nicole's 18th birthday. It's hard to believe she's gone from this cute little thing, covered in cake and baby drool, to the young woman she is today. That picture was taken on her first birthday, by the way. This year her birthday lands on a busy day for her. She takes a Creative Writing class at a school up in town that meets once a month. Then each Tuesday night she goes to Youth Group at church. Between all that and Rick's last night of his fly fishing class, it's going to be a busy day, so we've decided to have a late celebration for her tonight.
We always called her Angel Baby. Nicole was born when Nichelle was a toddler, so while we were battling things out with Nichelle, Nicole would just go to sleep on her own peacefully. She used to crack us up with her "What if ..." stories that she'd come up with. Nicole loves to write and has been writing stories longer than I have. I wouldn't be surprised if she became a published author someday. She's also an avid reader who loves the classics. Music is another big love for Nicole, by listening to her iPod or playing her guitars. She's also great at poetry and is an amazing artist. She's just packed full of different talents!
Happy Birthday Nicole -- I hope you have a great day!
