Happy Birthday, Grace!

Because it is the "week o' the birthday" at our house, we get to celebrate another special girl today!
Today Grace turned 7 years old. SEVEN!!! How did that happen?!?! I swear, she was just born yesterday, and all of a sudden she's seven... I think she grew up when I wasn't looking...

Grace is the perfect completion to our family. She is an original, and she keeps us on our toes around here EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. She is witty and smart and downright funny! She is also sweet and empathetic and loving, and I am so thankful EVERY DAY that God gave me this baby to love. Because no matter how big she gets, be it 7 or 37, she will always be MY baby.

I love you, Gracie Lou. Happy Birthday, baby!

Happy Birthday Kate!

Today is a special day around our house. Today, THIS young lady turns 13!I am so proud of the person she is becoming, and can't wait to see what the future holds for her.
"LOVE" doesn't seem like a big enough word for the way I feel about her. She made me a Mom, and she continues to amaze me and make me proud every single day.

Happy 13th, Kate. I hope it is memorable!
