Christine--or Sweet Pea as she is sometimes called

I came across this picture of Cris and Christine taken at Becca's wedding and it melted my heart. Papa has a soft spot for Christine, for good reason. She is our first grandchild and was born with curls, spunk, super brains and talent. As a small child she gave her parents a run for their money--what with the energy and huge spirit in a very small body. She did everything early--walked, talked, drew, wrote, danced, ran--you get the picture.

She is the oldest of 5 and a second mother to her siblings. She has many talents; ballet, violin, piano, writing, singing, any sport you can name, is a lightning fast runner and is not afraid to try anything. Yes, her brothers can annoy her and her little sister can mess up her stuff--but she loves them anyway. She is now 12 years old and in Young Women. Where did the time go? Here's another picture with Papa. What do you think? Is he proud or what? Thank you Christine for being our granddaugher. We love you.

Oh, she is so pretty. You know, I had kids just so I could have grandkids someday.

Katie... you keeeel me.

So, if Kevin & Co don't read this then they are mean jerks who don't deserve you... you should then consider disowning them & adopting me. We'll make it legal and everything.

Now, if they DO read this ::crossing fingers they don't tho cuz of the above thing you promised:: and DON'T get a little teary... well then they are dead inside. And there's not much you can do about that.

Sweet tribute to an adorable Christine! She was one of the first babies we were around a lot at BYU... love her!

Lulu, They see the blog but don't comment on it. They comment via email. And I'd be happy to adopt you legally but would get in big trouble via certain relatives (your mom and dad) so we'll just do it under the wire.

I love the pictures of Christine and her Papa. She is growing up into a beautiful young woman. She is very talented and will go far! She has wonderful examples as well from her family.

Hope everyone is well and happy. Thinking of you both!

Uncle Visor does look mighty proud with his cute little granddaughter.

Dead inside they are. I'm hoping I get a scathing email from Kevin after reading this blog post. Then I'll know for SURE he looks. You hear me Kevin?

Anyhoo, Christine was so teeeeny! I can't believe it. And Uncle Visor looks sooper dapper in his tux.

Finally getting back into blogging after my first 6 weeks as a mommy. What a roller coaster it's been. Loved how you said Christine gave her parents a "run for their money." I think Caleb's already started that run;)
