To Grace, on your 14th birthday!

   Grace, You are such a lovely girl.  You are a huge help to me and dad babysitting when we need to run out.  You are also so good at doing the little girls' hair that I often give you that job before we need to leave the house.   You have taken a huge interest in hair this year and getting highlights was the only thing you wanted for your birthday (other than a phone, which wasn't about to happen!).  You watch hair tutorials all the time and are learning all kinds of new skills.  It is impressive, even more so I think because you've done it on your own. Watching you grow into this beautiful young woman is so fun and encouraging.  I love that you still come to talk to me about hard stuff and don't shy away too much from difficult conversations.  You have shown great discernment in the books you are reading and the stuff you put into your head.   I'm proud of you kiddo! Love, Mom Birthday cake: chocolate chocolate chocolate cake Birthday Dinner: chicken tenders F

To Tim, on your 7th Birthday!

  Tim-boy,  How are you seven already?  It amazes me how fast time goes and you are my littlest boy.  Goodness.  Your smile lights up every room you are in.  You have so much personality and people are always telling me how sweet you are and how thoughtful you are.  I see it.  You will still get in my lap and sit with me.  You give hugs like they are the best thing ever.  You are a delight.  You have so much spunk in you sometimes it is hard to reign it in.  You know what you want and go for it.  You love to share a room with Isaac and don't like being by yourself at night or at rest time.  You love to build Legos - both out of kits and of your own imagination!  It's so fun to watch.   You are starting to learn the value of money and ask me to buy stuff all the time!  It's fun to watch you try to figure out how to earn money to get what you want - usually Legos. :)  You delight me and I love to watch your personality continue to grow!  Love, Mom Favorite Toys: Legos Favori
