Happy 1st Birthday, Darby!!

June 29, 2012

We slowly getting caught up on picture editing.

Darby’s 1st birthday pictures are next. The sad thing is I still have more…but at least Courtney has her’s ready!

My favorite picture!

Panda cake in progress. (Each of our children have received this as their very first birthday cake.)

Finished cake!

Jacob was trying to make Darby look at her cake. She was so happy to see everyone standing around looking at her! 😀

…and then we started to sing.

Of course, that didn’t stop this little one from trying her cake!

I would say she liked it!!

A whole year has passed.

We’re thankful for this little one, her happy smile, her good health, and the joy she has brought to our family!!

Paul's Graduation

June 27, 2012

I’ve had Courtney busy, busy editing photos of recent events in our home.

I’m thankful for her willingness to capture family moments…it’s a blessing for our home and our family!

In any case, I was thrilled to hear that she had Paul’s graduation photos ready for me. Bless her heart, there were thousands of people there and we don’t have the camera set-up for shooting an event like this, but she did a great job capturing this special moment in our lives.

I’m sure I’ll have more to add in the coming weeks….

I’m so proud of him. Aside from working hard each week for our family, and of course that little thing….leading our family of soon to be, 14, he has studied and studied more! He graduated Summa Cum Laude- one of only about 30 people in a graduating class of more than a thousand!

Praising God for this accomplishment!!

My precious 3 year old!!

I love your little chunky cheeks, and your dimpled smile, your curly blonde hair and your sweet hands when they are in mine.

Baby Update- Coming Home Outfit

June 22, 2012

My dear Mom, has always bought the coming home outfit for our babies.

She, a few of my girls and I went a couple of weeks back and picked out baby boy’s new outfit:

Somehow, seeing this hanging in my closet is making the time seem ever closer! I still have much to do, which is making me just a little nervous. Mostly, I’m just growing more and more excited to see his little face!!
