Happy Birthday Ria - You Are Such A Special Girl

Here is the earliest picture

of Ria I have scanned into my computer.

Look at those eyes!

This one is

 is not great-

not sure what camera it was taken with.

Look at those curly little piggy tails.

She was SUCH a sweet little girl.
That is SweetCheeks to the right as a baby

crawling around..

she looked up to her

big sissy-even then
You will notice that SweetCheeks is 

getting INTO the cabinet~

When she was three

she and her sister

were in a wedding that

was photographed for a

national bride magazine.

This is one of the pictures

that appeared in the spread.

Our little thumb-sucker...

Look at those eyes...

She has always been a little princess~

She loves everything and everyone!

I love her serious look.

She is growing up fast.

We are thrilled to have this 

sweet little girl in our lives.

She is one of 

Three Sisters Cookie Company

And all Three Sisters are as sweet as can be.

Summer or Winter

Yep-She is growing up fast!

She is our ballerina.

Beyond good for her age 

and dancing with girls

that are two and three years older

and doing solos.

She is just a slip of a girl-

teeny-tiny-a good wind would

blow her away-

(but we hope it won't!)

Don't grow up too fast, Ria!

We are missing our 

"little girl" 



Love you to the moon and back...

  10. Awwwwww...our grandson is 11, and I think that's the age where you really start to see that they're no longer 'little' and are growing up way too fast. It's funny, no matter how many times I told our daughter to stop growing, she never listened! How rude. :/
