Mommy and Her Girls

My mom emailed this picture to me. It is my favorite picture so far from Christmas. From left to right it is Becky, Belle, Me and Katie. I am so proud of my little girls. These are the dresses I got for the girls to wear on Christmas to church. They all looked so beautiful. I am so terribly blessed. There is not a picture of Zack, but it was just as handsome.
