Birthday Girl

AYesterday something happened that seemed completely surreal. My first baby entered into her last year of pre-teen life. Although yesterday had some tough moments between the two of us (me no sleep - her hormones raging!) I have to say that I couldn’t be more proud of who she is, what she chooses to stand for and who she desires to become. She is truly amazing and Kyle and I feel so extremely grateful to God for how much he has stood in for us as we raise her. God’s word tells us that where we are weak that is where He is shown strong and oh my! That is so true in our parenting journey with this one!

Happy 12th Birthday Adia Paige!
Your dad and I love you more than you will ever know (well, at least until your first born turns 12).


and some random pictures of her...




and these are a sneak peek into the post I have been meaning to put on here for a couple weeks. This is from our Passport 2 Purity weekend. Several friends have been bugging me to put that on here but it's such a special story that it's hard to write in a rush like all my other posts. I promise I am working on it.

It's difficult to wrap my head around the fact that our oldest g'daughter will (too soon) be a teenager! It's truly been a blur.

Adia, you are one special girl & you have blessed our lives beyond belief. We love you so very much - hope your birthday was spectacular!

Yeah Adia! I can't believe how big she is. Sorry we missed her birthday. Would have loved to stick around for that.
