Next Up..

We have a new five-year-old in the house.  He’s been so excited about his birthday for months.  He’ll start kindergarten next year, how crazy does that seem?


This little guy is so fun to be around.  He’s maybe a bit dramatic, which makes him so funny.  It may also get him into trouble sometimes.


He told me yesterday he thought that he would stop whining now and listen better, since he’s bigger and all.


We love you Ezra, happy birthday!  We can’t wait to see what this year holds for you son!

Up next…

Well today is finally your big day!


You, my now FOUR year old, have been waiting through all of your siblings birthdays with great anticipation.  Today, it’s your day for sure.  It’s amazing the big personality that is in the little body of yours.


You’re super funny, and very loud (we’re working on that), you have a big imagination, and you’re such a sweet boy.  You’re also a great brother!


We love you big man and can’t wait to see what the next years hold for you!  Happy Birthday!

He’s Three



This little guy turned three today.  He really likes the beach!  He also enjoys, chicken (to eat), yogurt, and anything that resembles dessert (that’s actually his favorite).  He uses his siblings old workbooks and does “school” at the table with us.  He pretends to be all kinds of things, and is really good at taking care of his sisters’ dolls.

He’s a little sneaky and has a killer smile.  Like all of our kids he holds his own special place in this family that couldn’t possibly be filled otherwise.  We love so much Ezra, Happy Birthday!





Today our littlest one turns 1!

She’s walking, babbling, and just generally voicing her opinion about everything.  Her dimples and array of expressions….oh my.  We’ve been so blessed with this little one and are so very glad God decided to place her here with us.




Happy Birthday to our sweet one-year-old.  We love you, our little Liddie bug!


Happy Birthday B3

seven, Seven, SEVEN!  We can’t believe you are turning seven tomorrow!  I came across a picture of you and your older brothers when we brought you home from the hospital.  It seems like just a few weeks ago when that picture took place.  Time has flown by and you are growing into a great young man.  You love to play with B6 and can always bring a smile to her face.  I’m guessing you got your suave snappy dressing from me, but don’t tell your mom!

You’re still hanging onto that last tooth in front.  You bring a new meaning to loosing teeth.  You really lose them when you lose them.  I think you’ve had only one tooth you could put under your pillow for the tooth fairy.

I love it when you come and sit beside me in school to read a chapter out of your Bible.  You are very thoughtful and take time for every decision no matter how small to make sure that it is the right one.

You are a great big brother to your younger brother and sisters.  They love playing and laughing with you.  You wake up in the morning full of energy and keep it until you finally fall asleep at night.  It’s great to see your knowledge in God grow and your desire to know Him more grow as well.  We can’t wait to see what He has for you in the future.  We hope you have a great birthday tomorrow and we know you will love your gifts!  We love you very much!
