Happy 18th Birthday Eden ♥
Happy non-birthday to you dear sweet Eden.
Yes this birthday post has a story of it's own.
Eden has wanted a theme birthday for her 18th birthday since before her 17th and has been planning and making things for simply ages.
So trying to get a date for this birthday when her siblings who live away and have to work around University terms and waiting for Braedon and Anna-Lisa to come back from their honeymoon has been difficult to say the least
This year Eden started working part time at KFC and she is doing extremely well there. The managing staff love her and she started a trainee ship with them almost from the start of her time there.
We are so proud of Eden as she can be little shy with new beginnings and so this was an opportunity that she sought out herself and started under her own initiative.
It isn't what she wants to do with her future but it does bring that extra cash with which she has enjoyed very much.
Having said that she is not frivolous and is a most generous and giving young woman.
much loved gift from God
It has been a learning experience to be working part time, studying at home and fitting in the other activities that she has been doing.
Needless to say there has been some growth happening as Eden adjusts to this new arrangement and we have been both frustrated at times and at other times amazingly surprised with the way she has handled situations.
Eden is probably one of our most arty and crafty girls and I really love observing this in her and then planning and making things with her of this nature.
For the actual/non birthday we had toaster waffles with maple syrup and cream, Mediterranean lamb and rice for dinner.
I cheated with a Woollies mud cake (as the real cake will be later) but I did make some pretty paper bunting for the top of it, which I loved.
She had a lovely day not doing much and reading Percy Jackson for virtually the whole day, as we bought her some of this series. She is like Vellvin like that for birthdays too.
Once again I am so thankful for a beautiful daughter who is growing up into such a fine example of inner and outer beauty and for her generous spirit and compassion.
Happy birthday to our most precious Eden (and for your celebration in January).
All our love always,
And now I am caught up with birthday posts!!!!
But will be doing Eden's theme party in January.
