She's Growing Up...

She was 2 1/2 when she came into my life

she was shy

but I won her over

and when her Mommy married my brother
she became my niece....

I always seem to talk about Samantha
her little sister
because we tend to see her more

The teenage years are tough ones
and my little Goosey Lucy
is busy you know...



This is her in 1999 at the cottage

5 is such a fun age!

Christmas 2007

on her school trip to Quebec City


and not so long ago...

Today she turns 15
a beautiful young woman

Happy Birthday Katrina
Love you lots & lots.
