Summer's Last Bit of Sweetness


As summer yields its last glorious days,

And warmth still gives way to bare feet,

She will dance underneath the sun's setting rays,

And provide us with cherished moments both happy and sweet.

  38. oh mel ~ i can't express how wonderful it is that you have these precious photos of your little girl ~ she is such a dumpling ~ a true puddin' pie! you must have a continuous smile and glow ... and it goes without saying that she is the luckiest little girl to have such a sunny and loving mom as you ...
    ok ... here i go with a little side tale ... puddin is the nickname that my dad had for me when i was wee ... how could a little girl not feel completely sweet?
    hugs for you and your gal,
