My Eleven-Year-Old!

Eleven years ago today, at about this time, I was being prepped for surgery...a cesearean-section.
I had gained 65 pounds during this pregnancy and was more than ready to hold my precious girl!

Our middle child was born weighing 7 lbs 7 oz..

                                                                                         Our Smiley-girl!

From the beginning, we could tell she was a happy child, full of joy and quick to smile!
As she grew it was evident that she loved animals and was drawn to them.

My sweet girl has always been fun-loving and quick to put a smile on our faces!

From an early age, and due to the tutoring of her Grammy, she's learned to sew and cook.

                                                                        At five, she was sewing with Grammy. 

She's learned to ride and competes in 4H horse shows.

 And this past year she achieved a goal that she had worked very hard towards, First Year Outstanding 4H'er.

She seems to be following in her dad's footsteps and hopes to be a veterinarian one day.

                                                                          Strawberry getting an injection.

With her tenacity and take-the-bull-by-the-horns attitude towards life she could very well achieve this particular goal also!
                         Happy Birthday, Precious Girl!!!

Blessings, Julie
