|My Vallie...gotta love those cheeks|
|Flower girl at Cheryl & Jason's wedding.|
Oh how cute she was in that dress.
Val has always been such a girly girl, I wouldn't want her any other way really. She has gotten to be a flower girl for Stephens cousin Cheryl, and then when she was just 12 she got to be a brides maid for Emily (and man she didn't look 12 standing at the front of that church that day)

I guess it kinda makes me sad to think that at this point in life she is much closer to being the bride than the flower girl. She loves to dress up so much, that I am sure with out a doubt in my mind she will be the prettiest bride ever when it is her turn (not any time soon, thank you. Im in no rush for that)

my silly val!
|loving her baby sister.|
|took this shot while making them hold|
hands while getting ready for school one morning
when all they could do was argue with each other
One day brittnie had been in her baby bed sleeping, i heard her wake up and start to whimper so i went to the kitchen to make her a bottle. while making the bottle she started to scream, I ran to see what was wrong and there stood Val, I asked what happened, why was Britt crying. She looked up at me with the most proud of herself look on her face and said "she was crying so I gave her something to cry about." So started the days of tormenting the sister.

We have alot of fun times and alot of not so fun times, when I look at Val, I can see how close she is to becoming an adult and though I don't tell her near enough I firmly believe she is going to be one heck of a grown up. she really does have a good stable head on her shoulders and I know that even though she is just now getting to the age where she is going to push her limits with us she will turn out great in the end. It is funny now, but not so much when just the other day she started to feel out some of those boundaries, she asked if she could go spend the night with a friend on the last day of school, ended up going to another friends house and telling her little sister "not to tell mom" (and Britt didn't tell however dad caught her) little does she know that had she just called to say "hey mom can I go to so&so's house before going to cortni's house today after school..." I wouldn't have minded near as much. Oh well. Guess she is going to have to figure this out at her pace. (God help us) and man some days I still get so frustrated with my girls, but if someone told me I could go back in time and that I could change anything I wanted, I would never change meeting Stephen and becomming a mom to the wonderful daughters God has given me.
