One more fairy lagging behind...





"Sugar and spice and everything nice"



....and everything God has created her to be.




...Made in His image, made to glorify Him, made for this family.



Thank you, God, for little girls!






I know it's coming way quicker than I want it to, but someday, our little girl will be a grown woman...ready to leave the nest. I don't look forward to that day. Right now, I am cherishing every mommy moment I can get.



Our prayer for each of our children is that we equip them with the right tools to go forth in the world, and be a shining testimony for God. If God has it for her to marry, I pray he is a man who loves God with all of his heart and soul. If God has it for to have children, I pray she has the kind of daughter that she has been to me.



And if God has it for her to be single, I pray that she finds contentment and completeness in Him...living "happily ever after," being God's little princess.

She looks like she is in a movie that is being filmed in Ireland. My how she has grown into such a beauty, both inside and out. I agree Kris, you're a great mother!! It is amazing how God gives us opportunities like these to see the innocence and true beauty of a child. Thanks for sharing with us Beck!

Thanks for the sweet compliments! Liz, you are so funny. Now, that you said that, she really does look like she could be Ireland with the rolling green hilltops.

And for all you internet stalkers out there, we totally live in Ireland. :o)

I can't believe Liz gave away your hiding place, so much for being part of witness protection. :) I LOVE these pictures, that first one is especially my favorite. And what sweet thoughts to go along with the pics.

'If God has it fo her to have children, I pray she has the kind of daughter that she has been to me.'

You were that kind of little girl to me. Child of my heart.
