~A little late. I wanted to post this on her birthday. But we had class that morning and then a big Thanksgiving party that night. So here it is. Happy Birthday Lexi!~
You are such a blessing! Your sweet smile and energetic outlook on life are infectious! You are independent and strong-willed, but we love that about you! When you want something done, you just go and do it all by yourself! That can be a little scary at times for mommy and daddy! Like when you tried to make us coffee! We love watching you think up creative ways to solve problems! We also enjoy your excitement towards learning! You are such a smart little girl! You have the biggest imagination! You can turn anything into a musical instrument! We love watching you take care of others. You always want them to feel included! And you want every one to know that KG is your brother! We praise God for you each and every day! We pray that you are always excited about learning more about him! Hearing you recite memory verses, pray for others, and asking us to read to you from your Bible brings joy to our day! Alexis, we want you to always remember that you are an amazing gem; so radiant, rare, and precious! Love you Big Girl!
Mommy and Daddy
