Leslie Anne: Tremendous at Twelve

Today, our precious Leslie Anne turns 12 years old. I have had an emotional few weeks as I have prepared for Lauren’s graduation, Mother’s Day, and now Leslie’s birthday. I am trying to keep this quote by Dr. Suess in mind as I have culled through photographs and reflected on the past: “Don’t cry because… Continue reading Leslie Anne: Tremendous at Twelve

Happy Birthday to My Leslie

Today my sweet Leslie Anne turns eleven years old! I just wanted to write and share a few thoughts about her. She is stubborn (like her mother), but that also means she is determined.

Leslie and the Competition

Leslie Anne began taking piano lessons in June of 2014. She had the opportunity to play in a piano competition this past March.

This photo was taken on May 16, 2008, the day before Leslie’s third birthday. I loved her cute blonde bob and this Western outfit that… Continue reading Vintage Valerie: Cute Little Leslie

Leslie’s 9th Birthday

I have¬†already shared with you that Leslie turned nine last Saturday, May 17, but I didn’t share the photos of her party. She was blessed with so many cards, gifts, and cash! My children are rather picky when it comes to cake. Some of them don’t like store bought cakes. I used to make really… Continue reading Leslie’s 9th Birthday
