    Very Fun Pictures, Mrs. Bluedorn! Emily and I enjoyed looking at the earlier years :D Guess Ava has never liked having her picture taken :) I think a horse in the house would be so COOL! 8)

    Happy Birthday, Ava! We share the same b-day month. June is a good month to have a birthday, isn’t it? I really enjoyed seeing all the pics of you when you were little! You loved animals even then. ;-)

    Hope you have a wonderful day!

    Absolutely wonderful pictures! Thanks for sharing, Laurie!

    Love in Christ,

    P.S. Is that “no horse…” thing like the “no dogs, no raccoons, etc.” rule???
