my happy girl

Oh watch me go
I'm a happy girl
Everybody knows
That the sweetest thing that you'll ever see
In the whole wide world
Is a happy girl

{martina mcbride}

i believe that happy girls
are the prettiest girls

{audrey hepburn}

kids dance before
they learn there is anything
that isn't music

{william stafford}

While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about

{Angela Schwindt}

Living is like tearing through a museum.
 Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw,
 thinking about it,
 looking it up in a book,
and remembering 
 because you can't take it in all at once

{audrey hepburn}

Oh watch me go
I'm a happy girl
And i've come to know
That the world won't change
Just 'cause I complain
Let the axis twirl
I'm a happy girl

the sweetest thing
that i'll ever see
in the whole wide world

I LOVE the one with her arms stretched out wide and the birds flying nearby. I believe with all my heart that those smiles come from the connection to the person taking the picture. She must love you alot. I can tell you have a happy blessed home!
