A little bit of sugar and a whole lotta spice

Several friends have commented lately on how much Remington looks like Addison did at the same age, which of course has had me thinking back to when Addy was little. That, and seeing her outside catching frogs tonight both reminded me of this scrapbook page I made some time ago. I love that I was able to capture her wearing a velvety, pink ballerina costume while sporting a toy gun and her boots (on the wrong feet, of course).

(Journaling is below.)

Journaling reads:

Sweet, funny Addison…..You are ALL GIRL: a pretty little princess who loves to wear ball gowns and ballerina dresses, purses and bows, jewelry and pink nail polish. You are equally at home in your cowboy boots, toting a pistol and an attitude! You love mud and bugs and dogs and frogs and dirt, and I love the different aspects of your personality and how they combine to make you who you are. So yes, you are all girl, all sugar and spice…..but I think the spice outweighs the sugar!

Now we are six

I’m a HUGE fan of A. A. Milne.  His Winnie-the-Pooh books contain so many quotable lines, like “Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?” and  “If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”

If you, too, are a fan of his works, you’ll recognize the title of this scrapbook page as the title of one of Milne’s books of poetry. It’s what popped into my head as I looked at our bowling shoes in all different sizes, and it reminded me how much I love being part of a family of six. (I made this page just before Christmas. Journaling is below.)

Journaling reads:

I love having a family of six. I grew up in a family of six myself, and always wanted to have a big family some day. It makes me happy whenever I see signs of 6…Six plates at the table, six stockings hung, or—today—six colorful bowling balls and six pair of bowling shoes in a wide variety of sizes! 🙂 I thank God for making us six.
