You go through life with high hopes and goals.
High School, college, marriage, babies, making your house a home and raising your kids.
It happens so quickly and it's over before you know it.
That's where I found myself.
Then came my first grandchild!
Life just keeps getting better.
Then came #2, #3...
All perfect, wonderful, precious kids.
Then came Abi!
There is no one like this girl.
She was the easiest baby.
She would lay happily on our
bean-bag watching her siblings run around.
I scrolled through my photo library and chose at least 50 and finally narrowed it down to some of my faves.
Yes! Abi is still happy and sweet
but she is much more.
She is the life of the party.
You know it when she enters a room.
You know it if she is absent.
She is so fun and knows no strangers.
You know that awkward feeling when you run into someone and can't remember who they are or how you know them?
No worries when Abi is along.
She will get to the bottom of it
before you embarrass yourself.
Oh how I love this girl.
One quick Abi story.
She and I tagged along with Mark this year while he was working in Miami. We stayed in a quaint little hotel that had a small pool.
A baldish man happened to be staying in the same hotel.
He came in the pool and she went right to him.
It wasn't weird, it was a really small pool.
Jumping to his arms and on his head.
She kept announcing, "I'm Abi!"
Finally, he announced, "I know, You are Abi."
Maybe he was a little annoyed?
Finally, the ladies around me told me he was Billy Joel.
I played her his video of singing Piano Man.
Made us a fun memory.
Abi is celebrating her 6th birthday!
Abi loves riding her pony.
She plays soccer and is taking dance.
She loves playing with babydolls and
spends many hours playing
with her Barbie Dreamhouse.
She is smart, perspective, brutally honest,
opinionated, loves music and dancing.
She is sharp as a tack.
and to narrow it all down...
she is just wonderful!
Here is her K-5 photo that we just received.
Happy Birthday Abigail!
