Sweet

Lucie is almost 4.

I can't believe it.

She's very light blonde with sky blue eyes.

Her eyes remind me of the sky on a perfect spring day.  I always marvel at the unusually clear, blue beauty of her eyes!

She really is the sweetest 3 year old I know. She's never been a brat.  She never went through the requisite "terrible two" stage.  She's always had a very mellow personality. And I'm ever so thankful for that.

I love her laugh! She can go from zero to hysterical very quickly.  It's such a unique laugh, woven through with pure bliss and contentment.  When she laughs it makes all of us laugh too! It's what I imagine an elf's laugh to sound like.

Joyful.  

That's my Lucie.

Recently she received an early birthday present.  It was a gift card! She had never gotten a gift card before and she felt so grown up!

Last night she got to go on a date with Daddy, just her and Daddy, to spend her card.

She came home with a bag full of goodies.  Licorice.  Mints.  Fruit leather.  Chocolates.....

And she proceeded to pass them out to her sisters and her brother!

On her own.

She was so delighted.  She was so humble.  

Everyone was so surprised! It was like Christmas again and everyone opening their stockings, one by one!

She displayed the shine one gets from doing something nice for someone.  You'd have thought the Lord sprinkled glitter over her.  She fairly glowed with love and satisfaction.

She even got something for Pennie.

I wondered, what 3 year old would ever do something like that?

I can't wait to see what this year holds for her!
