I felt a little scrappy today ~ so I dug out some old pictures of my grandlove Amanda from when she was a little bit younger (she's 15 now) and did a few pages up for her book. 


  • God made the world with its towering trees,
    Majestic mountains and restless seas.
    Then paused and said it needs one more thing.
    Someone to laugh and dance and sing,
    To walk in the woods and gather flowers and things.
    To commune with nature in quiet hours.
    So God made little girls with laughing eyes,
    with joyful hearts and infectious smiles
    Enchanting ways and feminine wiles.
    And when He'd completed the task He'd begun
    He was pleased and proud of the job He'd done.
    For the world when seen through a little girl's eyes
    greatly resembles paradise.
