Merry is my happy little girl. She is very rarely down. This photo really depicts her character. She is a bouncy, talkative, happy little girl. Usually, when she is this happy, she is singing. She will be eight years old in just a few days. I cannot believe that my firstborn is eight! Where have the years gone? She's getting taller and a little gangly, but she is still one of the tiniest girls in second grade. I'm trying to talk myself into buying her clothes more like her classmates wear. Its hard because she is so small, and I want her to remain innocent and naive, in some ways. I don't want her to grow up too quickly.

I think springtime pictures are such fun! I love the brilliant green of the grass and the bright pinks and oranges in the girls' dresses! They are so sweet! I love that my girls are such good friends. I guess those first two years of their lives were worth all the stress. Now I'm glad I had them so close together!
I love this photo. Scott has been teaching Merry how to ride her bike without training wheels. She is almost eight, but very tiny, and has been afraid to try until this spring. He was consoling and encouraging her in this picture, and I love how she has her hand on his shoulder...such love!

We have a beautiful genie that lives at our house. She will grant you THREE wishes! Kelsey is and has been obsessed with the old show, "I Dream of Jeannie". We have watched every episode at least twice, and for Christmas she received her very own Genie Outfit. She's the prettiest genie I've ever seen!
