Happy Birthday Chelsea!

guest post by Julianne

Today a special friend of mine has a birthday. Chelsea and I found out that we are "Kindred spirits" when we became pen pals just over a year ago. When I celebrated my birthday five days ago, Chelsea wrote me a haiku. I loved it, and decided when I read it that I would write one (or more) for her.

Today is the sixth
Celebration continues
Chelsea turns 15

Last year, Chelsea and I went on what we called the "Perfect Birthday Campaign." We did this by giving our parents lots of subtle hints, such as, "Do you know what it would take to make my 15th birthday perfect? Meeting my pen pal!" My mom told me that she didn't see how we would be able to do that. Sadly, Chelsea and I had to put our campaign on hold until next year.

At least, that's what we thought.

That's what my mom thought too, until she and Dad realized that he had a long weekend off work because of Independence Day.
Then... (insert suspenceful music here)

Amazing mothers
Secretly plotting surprise
Enter the story

Our first-time meeting
Sparkly tiaras were worn
Double birthday gift.

Or maybe I should say, "Triple birthday gift" because Allison enjoyed meeting Chelsea almost as much as I did...
