He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress and for his children it will be a refuge.

You light up our lives...

Since we're in the states (where all of our pics are at my mom's house), I was able to take a walk down memory lane today looking for pictures of Maddie to celebrate her birthday.  As you'll see from these pictures, her beautiful smile has been lighting up our family for 10 years.  What a joy you are our Maddie-Moo, Moosey-goose, Madimus- Maximus and we can't deny that at one point you truly were Fatty Maddie!   You are growing up into a beautiful young lady and we are so proud of you!!

Smiling so pretty for the camera from early on (see what I mean about Fatty Maddie?- and just so you know she laughs at that nick name...)

about age 1...

The smile got pretty cheesy for a while there...

Almost 2- right before we left for France

Loved that big sister!  (still does most days...)

Age 2-4

Growing too fast!  Age 5-6

7,8 and 9- Wow time flies!

And now 10!  Keep smiling, beautiful girl, we love you!

What a great montage! I can't believe how young she was when you first came over! And I recognize all the different houses over here in the backgrounds :) Beautiful beautiful girl - squeeze her for her 'aunt' Kendra
