It's her birthday

And she could not have been happier. Well okay, she could have. We could have let her not go to school and just open presents and play all day. THEN she would have been happier! But really, she had a blast, and LOVED every single thing she got. I think she was just happy to get, period! It seems so strange that she is already 7. It's almost sad she is so close in age to Dylan, because I almost feel she is too much in his shadow. Just always right behind him. He just turned 8, we are waiting until she turns 8. I think it makes it a little harder for her to make her mark. But trust me, she's working at that part! Haha. So here is a little about her at 7.

Oh, and did I mention she lost a tooth on her birthday too? She left that tooth barely hanging in there for over a week... hoping she could hold off until her day. She did, and it paid off with the tooth fairy. Good idea to loose your tooth on your birthday! She is hoping to time it right and loose the second on Christmas. Just what the tooth fairy wants to figure out. Something on Christmas Eve! lol

When she is happy, she really is happy. Elated and on top of the world.
She is an amazing reader. She always has her nose in a book!
She is one of the most determined kids I've ever seen. If she wants to, she'll do it!
She craves attention more than the other kids.
Loves, no LOVES to have her back scratched. She won't even cuddle unless you scratch.
Can manipulate any conversation in the direction she wants.
This will come in handy as she gets older!
Still does not like the color pink.
When she grows up she wants to be a cowgirl.
Never forgets her faith. Even when the rest of us might have.
Is a germ-a-phobe. I'm wondering if it's just a good excuse to not share!
Started taking piano.
Favorite food is still Steak and Artichokes.

Happy Birthday to my girl!

can I say that I love this photo. She has such special relationship with her dad, and this is it. That guy means more to her than anything else. I don't know who needs him more in their life. Me or her. :)

Not what I should be doing....

but I couldn't help it. I just really wanted to throw some new pictures up here and say hello to all my friends who have now abandoned me with my lack of caring for the blog world lately. :( Way back when, before this freezing cold spell we're in (and yes, it is cold even by non-Georgia standards!)... I grabbed a couple photos of the kiddos to update the yearly portrait on the wall. Funny how as the photographer I want to get all creative, but at the same time I also want the traditional portrait to hang on the wall! So here they are, all growing up and breaking my heart! Not want they wanted to do AT ALL (in fact, Makenna was in the middle of a play date) but I got some. Yay!
