As you saw from Wednesday’s post, Angel turned 12 this year. When we got her from Purebreds Plus Rescue, they didn’t know her birthday, so I chose 11 June as the day she could have been born on. Last year, I got confirmation that she was most likely actually born on 4 July 2007, but my dad’s birthday is the 4th of July, so I just keep celebrating on 11 June. She was a year and three (or two) months old when I adopted her, so we missed her first birthday…but here is a photo of me with her on her second birthday.
Angel on her 3rd birthday…still not used to those candles.
Here is Angel and me on Angel’s 4th birthday.
Angel’s 5th birthday fell on a Monday, so we celebrated with Hipstamatic photos.
Look how proud Angel looks to be 6 years old!
Angel’s 7th birthday was her first in our new apartment, and she had her cake on the window seat.
Angel couldn’t wait to eat her 8th birthday cake! I’m surprised she didn’t singe her whiskers!
Her 9th birthday was our last in Boston. She seemed a little intimidated by all the candles.
So, of course, Angel’s 10th birthday was her first in Sweden.
Last year’s birthday…I can’t remember what was going on with the candles. Either her birthday took us by surprise, so we used whatever oddball candles we had…or I was just matching the colours. And now she is 12…that’s a pretty incredible accomplishment.
