a very melanie post...

see below....autumn 2000
Love the make-up girl...spring 2000
Michigan, 2004

Modest and fun-loving.


I am not sure where this girl came from, well, yes, I'm sure but she is just a rare breed! I'm high strung, mouthy, impatient, grouchy, and I'm pretty sure I've been this way my whole life (way to focus on my positive points, huh?). But Mel? She isn't and I don't see it happening. Unless I scar her with my "wicked" ways, which I pray daily that the Lord protects her from. She is very helpful, always sweet, kind-hearted and genuinely one of the nicest young ladies you could want for your daughter's friend. On top of all of these wonderful traits, not enough, you say?? She is beautiful on the outside as well! She is the real deal! She is a blessing to raise and I learn from her daily.
The first and second pix were put on here because when Molly fell off the bed on Sunday, I thought of these pix. We were building our house and we came down to see the progress. It had been raining and oops, there she went (that is another one of her traits, clumsy)...but being the evil beep I can be, I ran for the camera and David held her hair back so I could freeze that memory in time!! We are great parents.
ok, I just wanted to post these lovelies, since I was having a Mel moment. Love you, Mel...you are a gem! your dad and I praise the Lord for putting you in our lives because you sure have made raising your brothers a lot easier!

I love these pics! Mel truly is the sweetest girl! I can't believe that she came from you...just kidding...but i'm sure there will come a time where she'll tell Molly that she's going to run away if she doesn't do something or that most big sisters don't take time to do their little sister's hair and all that jazz...actually, i think that will be my daughter doing that. I'm so glad that Mel has now has a little sister, as it has been such a blessing for you. HA...i'm killin' myself today. I'm glad that Molly and Nora have big sisters b/c it has TRULY been a blessing for me! I love you and your girls. (Your boys aren't half bad either!)
