Happy Birthday, Makenna Nicole!

Happy 16th Birthday, Makenna!

I cannot fathom how we arrived at this huge milestone so quickly.

One day you are toddling around, and seemingly the next, here we are . . . edging closer and closer to adulthood.

Makenna Nicole, you are:

*Compassionate ~ you have such care and concern for others. You are sensitive and empathetic, truly feeling for those around you.

*Creative ~ You are an amazing artist, and often come up with the most fascinating ways to problem-solve.

*You are outgoing, and make friends easily. You are quick to give second chances, and offer grace.

*You are hilarious.  You make us laugh every single day.

Happy Birthday, Darlin! We love you to the moon!

Happy 12th Birthday, Kameryn Faith

When I was pregnant with Kam I was asked to keep a journal for an online pregnancy and motherhood site called, Storknet.  And I am so glad I did! Now, all these years later, I still have those journal entries. And it's been such fun to go back to read through them.  I read them all to Kam {and Tay!} last week, and they adored hearing about life before they were born. It seems like ages ago.  And today, we celebrate Kameryn's birthday. 


Only one more year ~ 365 days ~ 8,760 hours ~ 525,600 minutes and she will officially be a teenager.  

Kameryn Faith . . . you are a tremendous blessing to this family each and every day.
You have grown so much this last year!  From ditching your glasses {most of the time}, in favor of contacts, to working on your artwork {drawing and painting are your favorites}, you are growing into such an amazing young lady.  You LOVE babies, and are a huge help in taking care of children.  You will be a great mama someday.

Happy Happy Birthday, Kam! You are a positive, joyful light in our lives.

Happy 18th Birthday, Sierra Elizabeth ~ Alternately Titled: I Now Have An Adult Child

I don’t know where to begin. To say that time flies, or that I don’t know how we got here so quickly, seems so cliche. But it couldn’t be more true. I wish I knew how we went from celebrating your first birthday, to the first day of Kindergarten, to high school graduation, all within ~ what seemed like ~ three blinks of an eye. 

In some ways I wish I could have kept you little forever.

But I wouldn’t trade watching you grow, and become your own ~ amazing ~ person, for anything in the world.

You are a wonderful big sister.

You are a treasured friend.


And we couldn’t be more proud of you.

I’m so excited to see what this next year has in store for you.

It is sure to be full of new experiences, and great adventures.

I love you to the moon, Darling Girl!

Happy Birthday Taylor Grace!

Tay Tay, you are nine years old!
How can that be??

Taylor Grace,
You bring us such joy each and every day.

You are such a big helper;
whether helping Daddy out in the shop,
or cleaning with Mama in the house,
you are always happy to lend a hand.

You like things neat and tidy,
and keep your room spick and span.

You LOVE animals.
From toting Luna around, to letting Diamond chase you,
and even getting the calves to eat from your hand,
you have such a calming way with our pets.

You always smell SO good, lol!
I know that's a funny thing to include in a birthday post,
but you have about a million different lotions and fragrance sprays,
and you always smell so delicious.

One of the things I love most right now is how much you enjoy being read to.
You couldn't sit still long enough for stories when you were tiny,
so it is such a joy to be able to snuggle and read together now.
And you love reading on your own as well.
You often have a book in your hand!













You are our bright ray of sunshine, Miss Tay,
and we can't wait to see what this year has in store for you!

Love you to the moon!
