  1. Isn’t she a pretty little thing? God has been so gracious to y’all and I know he’ll bless you even more…

  2. Oh, and wasn’t she worth that 35.5 hrs…? There will be times you’ll wonder…

  3. I love her just as much as my nieces (maybe even more, but don’t tell)!

    It’s been too long, we HAVE to schedule a get together soon.
