The Big 15!

Marissa turned 15 on Sunday! I can't believe my baby is 15. It seems like just yesterday the doctor was announcing "IT'S A GIRL". When I called my mom to tell her we had a girl, her first words were, "Think of all the prom dresses you'll be buying!" At the time it sounded so far off, but now it's only a year away.
Since we tried for so many years to have children, when we found out I was pregnant with Marissa, it was one of the happiest days in my life. She was such a good baby, sleeping through the night starting at 2 weeks old. At one month old, she spent 10 days in Kanosh with my mom while I had my gall bladder out and other complications. She was the first grandchild so everyone spoiled her.
15 years later, she is as beautiful as ever, both inside and out! She has a strong testimony of the gospel. She is a wonderful example to her younger sisters and brother. She is a great friend and has a magnetic personality. She has a great sense of humor and is always saying things to make everyone laugh. We rely on her a lot and we appreciate her tremendously.
She is looking forward to receiving her learners permit soon, so we will let you know when the streets and sidewalks are not safe.
We love you Marissa!!!
