On A Lighter Note...

My freckle face turned 10 over the weekend. How does the time go by so fast? I remember when she was born and Andrew was singing "We are going to have a baby" song. I remember when she was sad she would go lay down in the hall and bury her face in the carpet. I remember her dressing up as a princess and twirling around. I remember her not talking to anyone at school for the longest time but then made a fast friend in Madison. I remember her writing letters to our Pastor over a problem with them scheduling some things while she was in dance and wanted it changed. I remember her laughter and giggles with her first ever make-over sleep over. I remember all these things and still wonder where the time went.

Here are a few shots of her memorable 10th birthday weekend:


Skating rink with friends...



We had a small cake on her actual birthday with family:



Our present to her were horse riding lessons. She has been asking for over a year. I asked her what was going through her head while on the horse:

Catherine: I was thinking "I'm on a horse, how to hold the reigns, where to put my feet, I"M on a Horse, how to pull on the reigns, where to look, I'M ON A HORSE!"
