Tuesdays Tribute...A teenager...

Jay and Deb started this wonderful idea and opportunity to think of something or someone, other than ourselves. They are so good!! Click on the button to read (and join in) about this Totally, Tubular,Terrific Tuesday's Tribute..(sorry, go just a little carried away...giggle)
Tuesday's Tribute
A Jay and Deb Production.


I never thought I'd have a teenager so soon. You, my sweet Kelcie, came into our lives at just the perfect time. We thought you'd be early (before Christmas), but you decided to hang out until the new year. Since then, I have been mesmerized by your ability to be patient, thoughtful, and tender. I am so grateful you are the example for your little sisters. You have set the bar high (sorry, paving the path first is not always easy, especially with parents still learning the ropes).
Spending your birthday at Solitude was beautiful.



The bright blue skies, crisp frosty air, snow crunching under our feet, a warm condo, delicious meals (cough..cough), skiing, birthday surprises, Uncle Bill, and just being together as a family. So many memories in just a couple of days.


I love to hear you sing, especially when cleaning or playing with your sisters, your innocence, the deep devotion to your family, never saying goodbye without a "I Love You," and your sweet presence with all you do. Happy Birthday my Kelcie "Roo." I Love You!

That was so great, Mel...and such great pictures...

Gotta say it, though...scared to tears of having a teenager...

Ok, I know. It's not about me.
