Happy Birthday Lily

Lily Alynn Floyd entered our lives 5 years ago on a warm day in Texas. I told Michael early in the morning that it was time to go to the hospital. He said, "Soooooo, don't go to work?" umm... yes. Then he proceeded to dress up in his finest cowboy attire. I made fun of him a little bit and he defended himself and said, "Well, I have to welcome her to Texas!"
Lily is our ray of sunshine. She is happy and cheerful 99.9% of the time. Her talents include singing, working out, and quoting movies. She is always getting her sister, Kaylee, to quote scenes from their favorite movies, and let me tell you, they are good at it. Lily has an incredible imagination and she is ALWAYS pretending. She is beyond excited to start Kindergarten in the fall, though I think it will take a bit of adujsuting when she realizes it really IS going to be longer that 5 days.
Lily already has a love for the Gospel. She is always asking me to read her scriptures to her; she likes to "read" them herself and she even marks them!:) She has her own Book of Mormon and she carries it to church in her little pink scripture case. Lily loves to read other books as well. We have read quite a few books together and have a loooooong list of books for the future;)

Jamie, Jan, Erica, Braden, and Emma in background. This is the first time they saw Lily.
I love Jan wiping away her tears:)

Because I ended up having a c-section, this is the first time I got to hold Lily. I loved her the instant I looked at her!

This is Lily on her very first birthday:)

Big sister, Lily. Or "Sissy Pants" as my girls would say;)
