beaming out of the photo.
Anyway, I'm rambling. I love this kid so much. She blows my mind and I wish I could capture some of what makes her amazing in words and pictures. Here are a couple of the latter, since the former have fallen flat: she's sticking with the violin (now pretty in pink), more skating, and she loved this weird red glow.
Update: I forgot that Ivy told me it was ok to post a copy of her letter to Santa this year. Quick transcription: "Dear Santa,
I don't know if you are real or not, but I hope so! I have been a bit bossy this year but that comes from being a big sister. That is something I am working on. Of course I don't need presents, but if you insist here is some ideas!
- new piggy bank
- new robe
- Dragon equipment (find at Doctor Drake's Dragonella in London)
- Baby alive doll (like Tyra's)
P.S. Please just pick 1 or 2 not 10 like 2006!"
