Happy 16th birthday Tyler


Tyler.  It's pretty hard to believe it has been 16 years since you came into our lives. You are the entertainer of our house. You make me laugh every day. I love being with you and I'm so thankful we get to spend time together. I'm so proud of who you are. Your choices in life impress me. I know you don't make easy ones and I admire that. I appreciate that you are a follower of Christ, not of man. I pray for your strength as you continue to grow in that. Thank you for all you are and all you are becoming. My life is so blessed by you! I love you. Happy birthday.

Happy birthday Garrett


I think you know how much I adore you. You are one of my favorite people ever. I can count on you to get my jokes, and sometimes I don't even have to make the joke, I just have to look at you and you know it. Not only are you fun and smart, you inspire me. You live life with high expectations for yourself and you persevere when it gets hard.  I love that. Thank you for loving me and for being you. Happy 19th birthday! I love you.

Cole is eleven!



Sweet Cole. You are such a bright spot in my world. Your joy for life makes me smile and makes me feel joyful too. I love how you know so many facts and so much trivia. I love how you devour books and love their characters. I love your creativity. I love how hard you work on important things like Bible verse memory. And I love how you want other people to feel special. You are a great explorer, observer, and appreciater of life. Your love of Lego collecting and building amazes me and makes me happy. So does your obsession with Adventures in Odyssey :). I wouldn't be surprised if you grow up and create things like that for kids one day. I am so grateful for you! I hope you have a wonderful day. Happy birthday. I love you!
