someone turned nine

2009 - a wonderful nine!
you have so much you think and say
you love paper, pencil and a quiet corner
a good book is your best friend at bed
but a party or time with friends will always win out during the day
you love to laugh
you keep life light
we love you bugsy!
2008 - beautiful and eight
2007 - seven, the love of animals has only gotten bigger!
2006 - quite the little lady
2005 - oh my! she's almost five (this one is late '04 but i love it so much)
2004 - four and in love with almost anything that has four legs
2003 - a very fiesty three-year old
2002 - a sweet 2 yr old
2001 - those captivating blue eyes that wanted to explore so much!
2000 - my darling first born, april 16, 2000
