It's Autumn's Birthday today! She turns 13! Happy Happy Birthday
"Hear my soul speak of the very
instant that I saw you,
Did my heart fly
at your service."
(My heart did fly down to Las Vegas
to see this new granddaughter)
(Isn't she a doll)
"What's in a name?That which we call
Autumn says she wouldn't change her name, she
likes it.(which makes me happy because we share the
same middle name...Joye.)
"I would not wish any companion
in the world but you."
Autumn's favorite companion (and toy) when she
was little was a Giant Panda that she
loved dearly. Panda moved around and actually
(I remember him being very lumpy )
Here's darling Autumn going down a hill with
Grandpa on a sled. The little Winnie the Pooh
coat she had on was handed down from big sister.
All six girls wore it.
Autumn is a kind hearted girl

If Autumn could go to any country she'd like to
go to Europe and Haiti.
It's her year to go somewhere with her mother

"All the worlds a stage and all the men and women
Some of the players on Autumn's stage are
her five sisters, mom and dad,

"Get thee to a nunnery".
Autumn isn't going to be a nun but she is a faithful

and loves the gospel.
She's been a great example to me as she's worked

Autumn cooks and sews and is into photography.
