the warmint

Happy sweet 17th birthday to my darling sister, Emily.

Amazing how some things never change!

You have grown into such a godly, beautiful young woman, and I'm so excited to see what God has in store for you this next year.

I love you so much, little warmint!

(& a very happy 30th birthday to Marla!!)


  1. aahhh...i can't believe my bday buddy is 17!!! i must be old? [and it was a very happy day, tanks!]

  2. I think you should identify the doll in picture #1 as your poor, ill-treated doll. Each of your younger siblings, in turn, violated that poor doll. And you would get sooooo mad when we called her Booger-Baby! :-)
