  1. Dad and I just read this...we love it all. Daddy says cut back on the candy : ) I laughed at the whole birthday party/church/roller coaster thing-you were such a sweet little fraidy cat.

    #75-you are your mother's daughter and this one reminded me of that!

    #40-you left off the bit about how you tear out the pages if the cursvie isn't perfecto.

    And of course Daddy says, "Why didn't she mention her French?" HA...you guessed that, right?

    I think your list is fabulous and so are you.
