My inquisitive little girl

So, I found these notes I'd written down in April and May. I thought I'd share them with you here...

It was April 27, 07 and we were driving in the car.
Sarah: "What are you doing, Mama?"
Me: "I'm driving, Sarah...what are you doing?"
Sarah:"I'm driving too, Mama...."

she pauses and thinks for a minute...

Sarah:"I'm driving Baba craaaaazy!"

I think I hurt myself laughing that day, it was so funny! It made me wonder what kinds of things Troy tells her when I'm not around!

We were at church and it was all over. Sarah saw one of the young men who had been recovering from a really bad car accident. His name is Caleb and he had crutches and some bandages on his leg. After looking at him for a while, Sarah turned to me and said, "Mama, Caleb has owies"
Me: "Yes, Sarah, he has owies on his foot and his leg."
Sarah:"Pay for him"
Me: "You want to pray for Caleb's owies to get all better?"
Sarah: "Yes."
Me: "Okay let's go pray for Caleb."
She put her hand with mine on Caleb's leg and I told him she wanted to pray for him...
Sarah: "Dear caleb owies...make 'em all geesus name. AMEN!"

She eagerly looks at me and says: "He's all better!"
Me: "Yes, baby...Jesus will heal Caleb and he will be all better. Good job, praying for Caleb!"

*sigh* and sometimes she brings unlimited joy and tears to my eyes.

The Family Reunion/Party

When we were in California, my Grandpa & Grandma had a party for our family. I had lots of cousins and aunts and uncles that came to the party. Most of them I had never met before because this was my first trip to California since I was adopted. My Grandparents and my Aunt Leanna and Uncle Robert have come to see me in Utah but the rest of the family I just got to meet. It was a lot of fun. I never knew how much fun it was to have so many cousins!!
I am standing by my Grandma's fish pond...she let me feed the fish in the pond, I thought it was awesome!
Me & Taya were having lots of fun swimming!

I love my cousin, Taya...she's 4 and we had a lot of fun playing together.

Mama said this photo made her laugh!

a girl on the go...

I found out how much fun it is to dip my hair in this big puddle! I don't know why Mama didn't think so!

This is my cousin, DJ...his Daddy is my Baba's cousin, they grew up together and were best friends their whole life.

This is some of my family...

This is my Uncle Robert and Aunt Trish...they're Taya's parents!

I really like my Uncle Robert...Mama says she thinks that he reminds me of my Baba...I'm not sure what she means, though!

Grandma & Grandpa finally done with the barbeques!

I put my dress back on cause I was done swimming in the pool
Here is Baba with his brothers, sister and Uncle Michael is adopted, too! I think that's cool!

That was a fun party...can I go to bed now, Mama?

More photos from Monterey

Mama says she needs to get caught up with photos from our trip to California. These are from our visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
This is me with my Aunt Leanna, she's really nice and I love her lots!
This was the cool touch pool. They had sea stars, sea cucumbers and other stuff to touch and hold. I was a little afraid to touch it though.
...looking at the sea star...
Okay, I'm goin' for it!

"I touched it, Mama!"

This is my Grandpa, he's the BEST, he likes to tease me and gives hugs, too.
Here is my Grandma with my cousin, Taya.
Mama loves the jellyfist, they're so pretty...she just HAD to include this photo.

I liked to play in this hole!

A Trip to the Farm

Yesterday, we went to the Historic Farm and we had lots of fun. There was a baby cow that I pet. He was brown and really cute.

Baba picked up the rooster...since he had chickens when he grew up, he knew how to pick them up and not get hurt. He was really soft.

It was hot and the baby pigs were trying to cool off in the shade.

There was a pretty horse, too.

Baba held me and I got to pet him.

The bunny was sleeping.
See my pretty necklace? Bailey made it for me!
I'm climbing in the tree house!

...and looking out the window!

Here is my sister, Bailey, and my brother, Braden. I love them bunches!

Bailey looks like she is in jail!

I like to climb on anything I can!
