HB ABBEY ABBERS ABBEY-GAIL!!!!





7 years ago today we got the best valentine's gift ever--our abbey. this little spitfire keeps us on our toes and makes us laugh. we have learned through painful, repeated trial and error to never, i repeat NEVER get into a mexican stand-off with this girl, because we are destined for complete and utter failure when we do so. the stubborn streak coexists nicely with her ability to give huge amounts of love and affection, and it doesn't hurt that she is probably the most beautiful 7 year old on the face of the planet. (i'm sure i would have no parents out there in cyberworld who would beg to differ---okay, lets just agree to disagree for just today? good.)



we are grateful that she was allowed to be such an important part of our family and we are thankful that she got to choose us. we just hope that she is still young enough to not be completely ruined by bad parenting. or that by the time she is 12 and needs extensive therapy, our trust-fund adoptive parents will have found us!!!



abbey, we love you and think you are the most stone cold, off the hook, crazy mad, wicked fly little shorty to ever get all up in our grills!! YOU ARE THE BOMB!! (see slang term of the day.) happy valentine's day to the reason our hearts beat.

Happy Birthday Abbey! She is a beautiful little girl and so much fun to be around. You always have to watch out when you are with her. And I wouldn't want to be caught dead in a Mexican Stand Off with her either! ahhh

HB to Abbey!! I love that girl and especially miss the mass quantities of love I received from her after Mia was born and she decided that she needed to start being nice to me again since there seemed to be a new kid in town!!

Oh Baby Girl (Chad's nick name for her) HB! Such a fun little person. Spitfire is perfect description for her. Love that little girl. I must say I have had a mexican stand off with her (while babysitting). So dang funny! I'm sure you know who won.:)
