My Chickadee is 11 today!
Here are the top 11 things that I love about her.
1. She is willing to try new things. At least once. In this case, only once.2. She is always ready to have fun.3. She makes good and crazy friends.4. She was chosen as Marta in The Sound of Music. She was the only 5th grade girl chosen. And she held her own by singing better and stronger than the senior who was also singing her part.5. She is a lover of good food. Especially her Gogo's pork ribs.6. She had St. Bernard cheeks for many years. And because she was round, she almost always had a bruise on her forehead until she started walking at 9 months.7. She shares her middle name with two amazing women who are no longer with us, her Gran and her Great Aunt Dorothy.8. She stepped outside her comfort zone and played church basketball this year. She was a great team player and finally got a basket in the final game of the season.9. She has an amazing voice that is a God given talent. She loves being in the two state honor choirs and loved singing at our schools 100 years of music concert with her sisters.

10. She has her first boyfriend:c) A sweet, generous, and kind boy who has a fabulous mother that I love to spend time with. When he came over to swim recently they shocked both moms by not clamming up in embarrassment, but having a blast together and acting like old friends.11. She is a sweet helper that spent a morning walking around the pool watching our little friend Judson for me.So my beautiful Kennedy is now 11. We're celebrating by spending the week in Colorado. Today while at Cripple Creek I got this picture.Isn't 11 adorable on her?
