the end of the line is my sweet niece, annabel. she is thom & katy's other little girl, or cailin's sister. sweet annabel turns 3 in november. i have a special place in my heart for all of my nieces and nephews...i don't have favorites. i will say that it was hard this past christmas when the gang came over from texas. annabel walked around singing her "aunt emily" song...she basically just says my name over and over. she is such a love! the song reminds me of when alex was a baby and i would come home from college. he would jump up and down and go crazy in his exci-saucer...we called it "the happy dance." all of my babies will run to anyone and give lots and lots of hugs and kisses. they are all loves! hopefully thom & katy will have more!!
sweet annabel is happy to be a big girl and loves doing things with her big sister. they are so sweet together! if thom and katy are reading this i'm just going to warn you that mama and i may be driving to texas soon...we discussed it yesterday...we need to see the sweet little girls!
annabel LOVES animals. anytime an animal comes on tv she is mesmerized. i drew their family for our christmas swap (there are way too many of us to get everyone a present). i got her "milo & otis" (an old classic!) and thom said she absolutely loved it! i think it made the drive back to san antionio a little better.
the picture below on the left is annabel from this past christmas. the one on the right is of me when i was little. crazy huh??
