Healthy and happy at about 8 months old...
Laughing with her Daddy the day she let her brother cut her hair at age 2 1/2. Nick and Elaine were playing beauty parlor early in the morning while I was busy with their newborn sister Erica.
Dressed up for Halloween with her sister in matching Jasmine costumes I made.
She had a memorable solo trip with her Granny up to San Francisco at about age 6 to meet up with our longtime family friends. She and Granny wore matching vests I made.
The teenage years were soon upon us. Here she is with best friend Caitie at about age 14. We held her birthday celebration at the beach and rented bikes for all the guests. That was a really fun party.
High school prom was only a few short years later. She attended in a ball gown I made. here she is with her friend Tany.
And later, she went to Senior Ball in a lovely coral beaded gown. That one I definitely didn't make.
High school graduation came all too soon; pictured with her Grandma.
A big jump to the beginnings of her own marriage--her wedding shower party and the toilet paper bridal gown challenge. That was a really fun game!
I told Elaine that the day she was born was one of the best days of my life, and so was the day our gorgeous girl and her handsome husband Chris joined their lives last October. We are so proud of the way they are making their dreams come true together. Happy 25th birthday, darling girl!
