A birthday note to my niece, Presley.



Dear Presley,

Happy 6th birthday, sweet girl! I hope you got your birthday package and you like what I sent to you!!!
.
I can hardly believe that you are already six years old! I will never forget the morning you were born. I was at work when your mom called me. She was crying happy tears and as soon as I answered the phone she said, "She's here!" Oh my gosh, Pres, your mom and dad were both so happy! :o)
.
And I was happy too. I had been hoping for a sweet niece just like you to love and have fun with. I'm so glad that God made you part of our family. He made a really good choice for you.
About a month ago I was out shopping for your birthday present and I found this cute turtle. I snatched him up and bought him for you. Don't you think he is so cute and sweet and lovable? I really wanted to keep him for myself, but then I decided that you would love him and take such good care of him. {Just so you know, when I come to visit you I will probably want to sleep with him.}
.
I hope you have a fantastic birthday this year, Presley! I know your mom and dad will make it very special for you, because you are a very special girl.
.
I love you, Presley! Have fun being six! I will see you at Uncle Ron's wedding!!!
xoxoxo
Love,
~ Aunt Deb

PS: I wanted to show you this picture I took of my cat Whiskers {the one you call Hissy-Poo} while I was wrapping your birthday package. This is why Uncle Doug calls him Rotten.

Precious! I know how hard it is for you to part with that turtle--you have made the ultimate sacrifice, my DD!

Wish you could be at her family dinner tonight--we'll miss you! xo

Happy Birthday Presley, I hope you know what a special Aunt you have :) I wish I'd had an Aunt like her. I love your turtle and haven't seen one so cute before! I'm sure you'll take very good care of him. Have a wonderful 6th birthday :)

Cute Turtle! Happy Birthday Presley - 6 is a lovely age to be...
I wonder if Whiskers knew you liked the turtle... maybe he thought he could go as Presley's gift instead? But then, cats do like boxes to sit in.
I love Presley's note back to you. It's so nice to love and be loved...
