Happy Birthday Little Girl!!

It's hard to believe it's been two years since we were blessed with your arrival. I can't begin to imagine what life would be like without you. God gave you to us and we are so very grateful.
We love you sweetheart.
We love your mischief and smiles, your tantrums (that make it seem like your small word is over) and your joy. We love that you are such a sweet, caring little girl. Already concerned about your brothers and how they are feeling, wanting to make them happy and have them smile at you (that is when you are not poking or screaming at Anthony!) You have a kind heart little girl and your Daddy and I pray that you will never lose that.
You have brought joy, tears, frustration and laughter to our family. Alexandra, you love life and feel everything so intensely. Your Daddy and I long for you to grow up loveing Jesus, looking to Him as you grow into the young lady He has created you to be.


Today is our day to celebrate you Alexandra! This is your special day.

I love birthdays. I love making my kids (and husband) feel super special on their birthdays. In this house, birthdays are a big deal. They get decorations (complete with balloons....my kids have a thing for balloons, which I understand, as I too have a thing for balloons (give me a bunch of helium balloons and I'm happy!)!) and their choice of what to eat, cake and a party with their friends. Their birthday's are they day that God choose to give them to us and that, my friends, requires celebration. My kids have a purpose in life, even if they do not know what it is at this point, they have a purpose and a reason for being here. What better reason to celebrate is there than that?
