That One Time Our Home Was In a Commerical

Not too long ago I was watching a friend go through a …

This Girl Has Joy!

This girl is my skipping, twirling, back flip, humming, singing, smiling kid. She is the kind of kid that can get in trouble and within 5 minutes she will be in your lap kissing and hugging on you. She hugs, kisses, loves and compliments so much each day. {Except when it comes to her younger brother. THAT is a whole different post} She is my only girl and she is this incredible blend of girly girl and athlete. She likes …
