Anyway, the whole point of this post is my stepdaughter is graduating High School this year. I remember when she was 3 years old and clinging to her Daddy's leg.
I love this picture. It's one of my favorites, still about 8 here.
She grew up. She's not this cute little girl anymore who just used to make me laugh. She was so shy and quiet, but was fun and goofy when she felt at ease and comfortable. Dancing in Dad's cowboy hats and boots, riding her first horse, dancing a jig down the grocery store isle. I have lots of great memories.
About 11 here, that's her gingerbread house, I only helped a little bit, really!
When I look at her now I can still see this little girl. It's hard around the womanly frame and makeup, but she's still there.
