a is for abigail...

My baby just turned 15.

A few photos to help me to remember these days
(current photos taken by her biggest sis.
the ones at the end of the post are from our family photos last fall)

She's my 
fun lovin', 
guitar  pickin', 
 football throwin',  
pie makin', 
basketball dribblin', 
piano playin',
keeps me on my toes,
on my knees,
always puts a smile on my face

She's sugar and spice with just a  bit more spice.

This girl has the gift of laughter.
She laughs all of the time
She makes me laugh.
Every. single. day.
The kind of laughter that comes quietly and then doesn't stop.
The hold-your-stomach, laugh-till-you-cry  kind of laugh.

I wanted to show you these
so you would know where I was coming from
with her bedroom re-do.

(my 3 girls)

She  is her own girl with  her own style.
We were going for a feminine look, but in a different way,  
one that reflects her personality.

So come back tomorrow.
I can't wait to show you!

She's a darling girl and I like her style. Bet she's a lot like her mom and I love how you all look alike in the 'feminine style' photo.

What a lovely post about your sweet and lovely daughter Abigail. I'm looking forward to seeing her bedroom makeover. I know it was done with lots of love and joy.

All three of your girls are lovely, just as their mother is.

Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

Your daughter is so lovely. Her "spice" shows in her eyes and smile. Truly "sugar and spice with a bit more spice" is a perfect description. I mean this in the most beautiful perfect way. I could have been described the same way a long time ago, but the "spice" part was shamed out of me. What a beautiful mom you are to see the unique and lovely in each of your girls and to illuminate those qualities. They are blessed to be your daughters, you are blessed to be their mom. The photo are spot on beautiful too. I just came back from almost a month vac and have not started blogging again until Mon, the 7th but just catching up on friends. Blessings.

Now that I've seen her bedroom..I can see why the decor and colors were chosen for your sugar and spice with a bit more spice little baby. Reminds me of my own except she's 27 and has two babies of her own!!! ;)
