As Ramie’s aka Puppy’s birthday quickly approaches I wanted to give everyone an easy opportunity to celebrate her! So PLEASE leave a comment with your favorite Ramie memory/quote/story whatever you think up when the name Ramie Baker comes to mind..here are a few of mine.
1.Ramie still needs someone to read her a bedtime story..Whitney, BriAnn and I usually rock-paper-scissor it to see whose turn it is. She normally has us change all the animals to chickens and she suggests that the main characters name is always Ramie.
2. Ramie still LOVES stuffed animals. I’m on a mission to find her a chicken stuffed animal…it would only be appropriate. She currently decorates her bed with a deformed Santa and by deformed I mean he is missing an arm, probably an incident initiated by Ramie taping him to a ceiling fan when the pandas were attacking…strange, I know.
3.When Ramies car randomly breaks down or becomes schizophrenic she gets in her wagon and heads off to class! Most of the time there are boys in line hoping they can be her escort to class…you think I’m kidding 😉
4. If the wagon doesn’t work out she can always hope on her horse and get there just as quick! Not to mention cowboys LOVE that, which of course brings a BIG smile to Ramie!
5.Ramie has always lived by the motto, “MODEST IS HOTTEST!” Example A is this floating devise…very fashion forward for her age, not to mention Sebastian and Ariel chilling with the goggle wearer! Anyway, we live this motto out at Tres Grande by enforcing a strong dress code.
Here is an example of a normal, M.I.H outfit!—>
Ramie started living with Whitney, BriAnn and I this past year, I was never worried about the new roomie, but I was curious to see how she would work into our dynamics and can I just say that NO one could have come in and filled that room as well as Ramie has. She has brought so much laughter, joy, smiles, inside jokes, late nights, heart-felt hugs (with occasional kisses) and endless bear trail walks as I finally have a buddy that likes to rehash events as much as I do! My few words will never do our relationship justice, but just as I was becoming weary of school and hesitations of moving back to Waco after an amazing summer, God placed a gift into my life in the form of her, and I will never be the same.
I love that Ramie is full of curiosity and genuinely needs to know what’s going on;) She is very perceptive and can quickly tell when a friend is in need. Empathy melts out of her as her heart reaches for people in need, who are lost, or those that simply are in need of a friend. In many ways I have found things in Ramie that perhaps no other friend has given me and while those things can not be written out for all to understand may I just say that when I am in need I have a friend in you. I love you Ramie, I am thrilled that for the first time I get to celebrate your birthday with you. I hope I am with you for many more. Thanking God for our friendship Puppy.
PS Puppy and Chicken forever
