This post is dedicated to Molly and who she is.

I would define Molly as my sweet, sensitive, creative perfectionist. She is truly a unique mix of Kelly and I's personalities. She loves to draw, paint, color--anything "arty" (as she calls it). She amazes me with the things she can draw just off the top of her head. I have some creative abilities, but I think she has me beat by a long shot! Recently, she won 1st place in the coloring contest at our local library.

This is her picture with her blue ribbon--it's displayed in the library! She's very proud. I thought Sadie would mind that she didn't win, but she said that her hand got tired while she was coloring her picture so she just "scribble-scrabbled"!

The bear on the right she colored and then drew, colored and cut out a copy of it-I was quite impressed.

Molly is sweet natured and is always concerned about other people. She is definitely a worrier and is shy around people she doesn't know. Apparently she gets this from her Daddy. He remembers being this way as a child and is now more social, but I would still describe him as somewhat quiet. At Christmas this past year, we did shoeboxes for Samaritan's Purse. While we were shopping for the boxes I was explaining how some kids don't have money for gifts and don't know about Jesus and we were going to help them. She looked at me and said "Mommy, I think I have enough money in my piggybank to pay for this". I had tears in my eyes in the middle of Wal-Mart. So, we took all her money to the bank and she paid for her shoebox that we sent. She's just sweet!

She is generous with her hugs and kisses and loves to have her back tickled. I think she would lie still all day if she could find someone to tickle her. She and Sadie are both Daddy's girls, but Mommy will do in a pinch! She likes to make people happy and is always trying to please.

Molly, you are truly a joy and we love you to the moon and back!

My sweet Molly! She first showed me the love of a grandchild. I had no idea how much I could love her or how much she would love me back. She is also her Granna's girl!
