The sweetest things in life, aren't things......

Brag Post Part1

Our sweet, kind, loving, first born daughter, has brought so much joy into our home.

She is always looking out for her younger siblings. She is always finding ways to help me out. She is so talented and smart.

I will share just a few examples to help you see what a sweet girl our Savanah is.

Savanah comes in every morning and gets the baby out of bed. Then says "Don't worry mom, just rest." She let's me fall back asleep and takes care of Luke. When she is ready for me to get up instead of saying "Mom the baby is crying...and I am hungry now" she comes in with a large glass of water (every morning) and says "Are you thristy? I was wondering what you are going to make for breakfast? I think Lukas might be hungry. You don't have to get up now, I was just wondering." (ha! Her kind way of saying "feed me and I am done with the baby" while taking care of me)

Savanah just recently got bit by a dog at her "Grandma and Grandpa cows" house. Grandma had told the kids not to play with the dogs, but Grandpa said that it was ok. The dog jumped up to get something in her hand and nipped her. I asked her about it a little later and she whispered "Don't say it loud mom, I don't want Grandma to find out the dog bit me and be mad at Grandpa." (Awwww...so sweet. She is always aware of others feelings like this!)

Savanah is a very smart girl. She loves to learn, read, and play the piano. She is very kind natured. She thinks things through before she acts. She is very sensitive to things of a spiritual nature. She is always reminding us to read our scriptures and say our prayers. She is beautiful! She is a very obedient little girl.

We are so grateful for our sweet sissy.
She makes our lives brighter, our days better, and our family closer in so many ways!
What a blessing she is in our lives!

What a wonderful lil girl you have. Your family is very blessed to have her...but she was given a perfect example of all the qualities you have just described she has! Actions do speak louder than words. Good job MOM!

Bonnie, she really is the sweetest girl I know. I'm so glad that her and Truman are close, and am exited for them to get to spend time together during conference.

Isn't it amazing to see the people that our little babies grow up to become? Being a mother is such a privilege. She's beautiful!

What a sweetheart Savanah is. So thoughtful and considerate. I'm glad that you are recording things like this. She will so appreciate it later.

None of those things surprise me at all. She is such a sweetheart, and such a good example to all of her cousins. I just wish you guys lived closer so I can see her all the time. I agree with Kari, I think Savanah gets a lot of her good qualities from you! You are a great example Bon.

Wow, what a sweetie. You are so lucky to have a all around perfect little girl! She probably gets this way from her fabulous mother :)

I am so thankful that Blayne and Savanah are in the same class at school again this year! She is a great friend and good example to Blayne. You have wonderful kids (you know what they say about the "fruit not falling too far from the tree")...you and Bo are great parents!
