Miss Anyslee is Having a Special Day!

Let's Celebrate!!

Today is our granddaughter, Aynlsee's birthday! Today she is SEVEN. Aynlsee is the only member of our family born in New York. She was born when her Daddy was a PhD student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. We didn't get to see her so much that first year or so and we were very thankful for pictures and phone calls and letters. It is amazing that she is 7 already and she has lived in three places, NY, China, and Utah!

This little blond beauty was quite the rave in China and for some, the only little blond girl they had ever seen! The Chinese ladies always wanted to touch her golden hair. Aynslee has had a good year. She has been a lot of fun places with her family. She has grown up and changed so much this year. To me the biggest change has been all about teeth! It is quite dramatic really!

Here she is last year on her 6th birthday.

Here she is when her front teeth came out just a day apart!
Now here she is on her first day of first grade!
I think she looks beautiful with her new teeth!
Aynslee and her best guys!
