Once Upon a Time.......

Once upon a time, six years ago to be exact, a precious baby girl was brought into this world.  We named her Lydia Grace Houston.  She is a sweet, tender hearted little girl who loves to please all she comes in contact with.  Her smile lights up even the darkest of days.  Though she is small in stature, her heart is big and filled with love.  Her desires for today include German pancakes for breakfast, Noah's Ark for lunch with Daddy and Mommy,  BBQ chicken with mashed potatoes for dinner, and chocolate cream pie for dessert.  Here are a few facts about her (in her own words):

What is your favorite color?  Red
What is your favorite thing to do?  spend time with mommy and daddy
What is your favorite food?  biscuits and gravy with bacon
What is your favorite memory?  when we went to Noah's Ark with our family
What do you want to be when you grow up?  a nurse
What is your favorite dessert?  pie!
What is your favorite holiday?  Christmas
What are you most thankful for?  God, and for my family, and my mom and dad
beautiful baby

We love our Lydia Grace so very much!  It is a joy to have her as a part of our family!  We praise the Lord for allowing us this awesome privilege of raising her up.  We look forward to seeing just how God will use her in days and years to come.
