It has been a fast 7 years. We have been so blessed by your family's friendship and hope to celebrate many, many more kid's birthdays together.

Love you, Richie-Roo!

Oh my WORD. Get out the Kleenex! Matthew is 2 years and 3 months and Joel is 2 months, but gosh, it's already been FAST!

I'm trying to enjoy the poopy diapers and puke on my shirt. :) But seriously, I love their smiles and laughter.

Alana, those pictures are absolutely two of the sweetest I've ever seen.

Kailey is 12 1/2. Tim will be 10 in less than a month. Kenzie is 8. Where does all that time go?

Oh my goodness thats just too much Alana!!! In the blink of an eye it just changes so quickly. Makes me want to go back in time and just hold them at each age.

Enjoy these days.

PRECIOUS PICS.
Seven today and seventeen tomorrow.
My son turned 17 last week.
For the first time in 27 years, I don't have to drive any child anywhere anymore. It's strange not being needed in that way!
But it's what we raise them for---to be independent of us. To live their life before God and find the God of Jacob! And Richie will! He'll never get away from your prayers! Happy Birthday and my prayer for him tonight is Deut 32:47 that God's Word would not be idle words for him but his very life!
