Mo Manning - A Sister Is - For Emily

My sweet Emily is now 7 years old, and this card is to represent her and her little sister Katie.  Emily is a great big sister, although, reasonably, she sometimes longs for the day when she was the only princess in the house!  She will always hold a special place in my heart and I long for retirement so I can spend more time visiting her.  At least she and Katie are only 3.5 hours away - not such a long haul.  I sent her this card to let her know how much I miss her, although we do get to do FaceTime every now and then, which makes up for the distance a bit!

Mo Manning - Georgia - For Susie's Birthday

John's sister Susie (my sister-in-law!) is an extremely musical individual. In fact, many times she chooses to sing her conversations, rather than just speak!   She plays the piano, and generally loves music.  She has recently moved hundreds of miles away to be with her daughter who is a professor at the University where they live.  I think it will make  Susie's life more enjoyable, once she finished settling in and makes some new friends.  This card I think is joyful and I'm sure Susie will like it!

Mo Manning - Bubbles Boy - For Danny

Little Danny is a spitfire!  Full of joy and exuberance - soon to be 5 I can't honestly see him ever settling down, and yet he is the most lovable and cuddly and affectionate little guy you could ever hope for.  He and Nick live 6 hours away so I don't get to see them often, but FaceTime - on which Danny invariably acts like a big goof - let's me see how he's coming along.  Ah, but I do miss those kids!

Mo Manning - Marion - For Katie

Katie, who turned 2 in August is a living doll.  She has these big brown eyes; gorgeous, full brown hair; a huge smile complete with cute little white teeth!  She's smart and learning to talk quite well - she has even toilet trained herself already!  She's going to be a force to reckon with.  In her household there is a cat - Mandy, who is nowhere as chubby as this cat in the image is, but Katie and her big sister Emily love that cat - who is quite tolerant and allows herself to be "loved!".  I miss seeing Katie especially at this age where everything is new and discoverable.  Oh well, I retire in 3 months and will be able to see the kids much more often I hope!
