Hi Bridgette

You are so cute and I just love you so much. I like when you say ninibobo, it's adorable. I'm so glad you're my niece! Have a super duper birthday.

Happy birthday, Bridgette!

I am a little sad that time and distance prevent us from being able to be with you on this birthday, but I am very glad that there are no surgeries or anything else that make it necessary for us to be there this year.

I hope you have the best birthday you've ever had. Enjoy opening your presents and eating special birthday treats and playing with lots of people!

You are a true treasure to us. Always remember that we love you very, very much.
