Happy 7th Birthday Avonlea Charlotte!
I can't believe that my "baby" is SEVEN years old today. Our firstborn. We've always had a house of "little ones", but she's slowly becoming the exception. This girl is my sunshine on a cloudy day. So full of joy and can really pick me up when I'm "in a mood" or just need a hug. She's an amazing big sister, always willing to help with her younger siblings and the majority of the time, does it with complete joy and enthusiasm.
I'm even more amazed at her love for the Lord and her "child-like faith". She' so inquisitive about who God is and she's so attentive during our Scripture time at breakfast. Sometimes, pointing out things that I never paid attention to before and I love that.
 
Daddy and I are so blessed to not only have children, but to have YOU Avy girl. God knew just where to place you in our "line-up" and we love watching you grow and learn. You're going to do great things someday little girl! Your passion, spunk for life and what is right and wrong are so encouraging to watch. Daddy and I want you to follow the Lord's leading in whatever He has for you to glorify Him and we can definitely see a passion in you already for your family (you want to be a mother someday and adopt 10 children who otherwise wouldn't have homes). You want to be a farmer and a baker when you grow up which doesn't surprise us at all. :) You want to help feed hungry mouths and empty bellies. We see great things in your future sweet one. Love you!
