Lillian’s 1st Birthday

Our little grand baby, Lillian, is one! This year has flown by. We have enjoyed every moment of it. She has brought so much laughter and joy into our home. Our family and friends were able to come and share in this amazing celebration of life! We are so blessed to have such a huge group of people that are always there for us. I would like to share some very precious pics of the birthday girl! She wasn’t very interested in my idea for a photo shoot…..sooo….this was a little tricky but she is a doll! I love this girl to pieces!

She has learned how to hold up one finger when you ask her how old she is. So during this picture, I asked her and she held up one finger on both hands! TOO CUTE!!

We covered rubber ducks with gold glitter. Her favorite toy is the rubber ducky! It is so cute when she says duckeeee!

2013 Christmas

DSC_0465I am so thankful for my family. We had a fabulous time during Christmas. We got to visit Rhees’ family on Christmas day and my family the day after. This was a little different than our usual schedule. We usually try and fit everyone in one day. That makes for one busy day and just not as much quality time. So, this schedule was much more enjoyable. We both have families that we are so blessed by. I really love the quality time of Christmas way more than the gifts. But I do have to say, when you find a gift for someone that they have really been wanting or needing, that is fun! This Christmas there were more little kids around and that always makes the day much more entertaining. Here are some fun pictures from our family Christmas.

And of course….we thought and prayed all day that our children that are waiting for us were being blessed that day too. It is funny when you just know that something is missing from your family. We pray that next Christmas we know the faces of those sweet children. 2014 is going to be an awesome year for our family. We pray your family is also truly blessed.
