Birthday Celebrations!

We had a wonderful Christmas together, celebrating as a family....even my sister Ang and her husband Mike were with us!  We were so glad to have Ryan home with us for Christmas! These are a few of my favorite Christmas pictures.....

Having him home for Christmas meant he was also with us for another special celebration.....our Emma girl turned 10! Double digits!! It meant so much to her to have daddy there for her birthday.  It meant so much to me to be able to share that day with him watching our little girl, and reflecting back on how life changed on that Christmas Day 10 years ago!

Here she is....blowing out the candles on her cheesecake cupcake.....

and she just realized her gift is a (new to her) i pod nano....i think she's pretty excited!

 all ready for sewing lessons with her new sewing kit!

I am pretty sure he is just wondering when he will get a cheesecake cupcake!

All weekend we were reminded of how blessed we are to be able to share these special times with our family. We have cherished each moment...even the ones when the kids were bickering or spilling juice on the carpet. I am just happy that they are still here to spill their juice...and that I am here to clean it up!


  1. So glad you were together for Christmas! We're continuing to pray for you all!

  2. So glad you were all able to be together. You brought tears to my eyes. God IS good.....Connie
