Happy 12th Birthday!

Not so little anymore, our baby girl.
Big kid toys . . .

Big girl earrings . . .

Asking for clothing items like a fuzzy robe . . . (there were times of tears when clothing was received in previous years)

Picking a "grown-up" cake . . .

You are unique. You are special. You are you, and that's why we love you.


A Lil Bit Of God's Beauty

Spring is so beautiful, especially where we live right now.  Lots of blooming trees and bushes.  Makes me just want to sit by a window and gaze at God's beauty or go outside and try to soak it all in.  Here are a couple pictures I've taken in the last week or two.  I should have taken so many more.
We have about 5 of these trees in our yard -- still don't know what kind they are.

Part of our back yard

I love dogwood trees -- so whimsical!  This one is right outside our bathroom window.

Robin egg blue is the perfect color blue.  There's just something about a bird's nest that says comfort, home, spring.
