Daughters

After our sons come our daughters. We almost didn't have them.  We almost "fixed" something that wasn't broken because we had already had 2.  Surely there's not enough time, money, energy, love for more ;)
What a crock.
Thank you Lord for taking us beyond our limits!   (You still are, oh me-oh my!)

Mary

Mary
Mary is such a go-getter. She dances from morning till night, jumping, twirling.  She can keep up with her brothers and sisters quite well.  She is full of self-initiative.  When I didn't immediately respond to get her a drink of water, she took her cup to the toilet and helped herself.


Hannah

 Hannah
Hannah has selective hearing.  She will flat out ignore me if I'm getting in the way of her plans.  She loves to play hard, get down and dirty, let her hair go wild.  But she still likes to dress up and have beauty shows.  Hannah is really good about approaching things from every angle, like patiently walking Mary down the stairs one minute and then sharing her string cheese with her and the next minute pinching her foot till she screams.  Hannah likes to make sure all the bases are covered.  


 Ann

 Ann
Ann is a mother-hen.  Having a big family has drawn out her nurturing and "keep-order" side.  She loves to preach.  She stands on top of the coffee table with the Bible open and preaches on and on and on.   
Just the other day, she went to lead her congregation in a song and she began to bellow out "It's raining men, hallelujah !"
I laughed so hard!  Still am! She hears it on  my Just Dance Wii game.  She swears it must be a Christian song because it says Hallelujah.  Okay Ann.


Am I in for it or what??
