Today (Thursday) Mandy and I went shopping and used up all her gift cards! It was so fun!
June 26th, 1998
gotta love those toes
She is such a little bundle of joy. Her eyes and smile light up the room. My sister Courtney wrote a paper in college about who or what she would want to bring with her on a deserted island, and she chose Mandy because she said she would never be bored or sad and would always be entertained - that pretty much sums it up!
Mandy is teaching cousin Gracie everything she knows about Ballet
(even though she has only had one ballet class in her life).
Her cousins Benny and DJ are her best friends in the world, she would rather be with them then anyone else.
But these guys all come in a close second!
I don't think anyone could love her more then me, except her Dad. They had a very special relationship. He would sit and tell her stories, jokes, show her card tricks, teach her things from the Bible, and she would actually sit and listen! I think she was the only one! haha not really, we all loved his stories - more now then back than :} Mandy prays every night for her guardian angels to come and protect her through the night (They used to pray this nightly together) Now she asks for her Daddy to be in front to lead them.
As with all my children, I pray daily for their lives, the present and the future. I pray I can teach them the love and grace of God and be the spiritual leader that I am now called to be. I only hope I can lead them down the right path,
