The Divine Miss C

This little girl is all good things . . .

sweet and soft as angel wings,

filled with vinegar and spice,

and lots less naughty than she's nice.

She loves to read and draw and write,

especially in dark of night...

but in the day she runs and plays

in fields awash with bright nosegays.

Carli is sensitive and kind,

a girl who really knows her mind.

She has a stubborn streak as well.

(With her, better to ask than tell.)

She's fresh and fun and impish, too...

loves everything that tomboys do,

yet celebrates her girly side

with grace and beauty dirt can't hide.

Her eyes can twinkle like the stars

or banish you away to Mars.

Carli is sunny as can be

and stormy, too, a shifting sea.

She sparkles like a diamond rare,

each facet far beyond compare.

She's quicksilver, a changing tune

that leaves us dancing round the moon...

And yet, her feet are on the ground,

steadfastly fixed where truth is found.

She holds the sacred in her heart

and makes of life the finest art. 

The pathway Carli soon will trod

is baptism, her walk with God.

In Him, we know that she will find

the peace He offers all mankind.

Grandma and Grandpa A.

I love that the images are both beautiful and honest. And as always, you know exactly what to say.

What a great photo shoot and what a great poem to complement every picture. I loved it all. That Carli is so darned photogenic and she really knows how to pose. Of course she has had a lot of time to practice. I just loved all of those pictures. She is absolutely gorgeous.

I am so very sad that we won't be able to go to her baptism. Darn that Bishop!
