The Great Eight for Sam


Our Sweet as Strawberry Pie, Sam, is EIGHT today.

and the interview with the little lady went as follows:

Sam, what do you want to do, now that you're going to be eight?

I wanna practice my shooting the basketballs.

What makes you happy?

When daddy puts me on his shoulders and carries me around.

What makes you sad?

When I am all alone, and nobody is playing with me.

What makes you excited?

When mommy gives me hugs

Samantha,  you make the world brighter.  

Celebrating your birthday with your cousins at the campground this year was as simple as a cake and the birthday song.   You sat quiet and still as the round of "Happy Birthday to You" rang out among our family.....you blew out the candles...

and stared a bit lost at us all.  You were patiently waiting for us to sing the "How Old are You?" verse.  We began, and you directed!
That smile, and that giggle.....I pray you never loose your joy, sweet girl.  We all were treated to the SOLO of "I'm Eight Years Old!"....and your night was complete.
Of course there was the cake & the gifts, but you asked if you could go to bed....you loved your birthday as it was already.  
SO simple.  
So innocent.  
My heart explodes.  

(don't worry, your cousins didn't let you go to sleep without opening your presents)

This past year you have grown so much!  Reading & Writing is becoming easier everyday....and although you struggle, you've made LEAPS of GAINS at school.  You are about to embark on the 2nd Grade, and we are so SO SO proud of you! 


May the LORD Bless you today, and everyday after, 
Samantha Brynn.
We Love you!

Colton turns ONE!



One year has never felt so short.

Colton, you've grown up so fast.  Maybe it's because you have 3 siblings to teach you, and maybe it's because I've wished you to stay little....
either way, your infancy is behind you already,
and with tears welled up in my eyes,
I am trying to put into words just how much we love being blessed with you!


You are brimming with personality already!
You love to laugh with whoever is laughing, and wave to and kiss those who say good-bye.


Most endearing of all your traits, little man, you are a hugger.
Wrapping your chubby little arms around someones neck and snuggling-in is the move: 
melted hearts are the result.


And although you give out lots of this love...my baby boy, you still love mommy the most.  I'm not complaining, nor do I want to give up my preferred status anytime soon.  I know this won't last.  
So, I will come when you call.  
I will let you snuggle right in.


Sweet, Sweet Boy.

You are ONE in a MILLION.
 


We celebrated your birthday with a WHOLE LOT of family...
can you believe you belong with this rowdy bunch?

Grandpa Bob manned the Fish Fryer


and we continued the fish theme from the cakes


 to the balloons...


with a big family like ours, 
you get to celebrate your birthday with lots of your cousins too


We all LOVE you so much, Colty!


HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY !
