4 days ago it was my birthday.
I was really, really excited for my birthday.
On Thursday, my Mom and I were out shopping...
and when we came home, my aunt Kirsty was at our house:
Kirsty was visiting my grandma and grandpa in Cornwall and came to see me because it was my birthday.
"My little taste tester" was born at 11:11pm on Sunday, November 7, 2004 in Ottawa, Ontario Canada.
That night, the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) lit up the sky and for the first time in my life, I caught a glimpse of the lights from the delivery room window.
Auroras were spotted all across Canada and the United States, as far south as California and Arizona. Even days later, people in Australia, New Zealand, and parts of the U.K. reported seeing the lights in the night sky.
How cool is that?
Here's what we saw in Ottawa:

Big hugs and kisses to "my little taste tester" for writing this post.
Thank you for reading! Have a MARVELOUS Monday everyone! xo
Have you ever seen the Northern Lights?
Do you ever see the numbers 11:11 on your clock? I ALWAYS do! Today I saw the number 1:11, 4:44, and then :44 on my oven timer. neat-o!
