To give you the rundown...Eli LOVED his party! He devoured his "little" piece of cake (I have no doubt that he could have eaten the entire thing.) I ordered a special cake just for him to match the big one. His reaction when I brought the "real" thing was priceless. I thought he was going to fall out of his high chair, he was bouncing so much from the excitement contained in his little body. Then came the presents and he knew just what to do with them. He opened them up like a pro. Thanks to Aunt Bobbi and Aunt Michelle...he loves his new fire-truck-push bike. Everyone couldn't stop talking about how cute and smart he was with his reaction to the cake. He knew exactly what was going on and he loved every minute of it.
How do they grow so fast? A whole year has gone by since I held you for the first time, Eli. I will never forget that special moment when I looked into your eyes, Daddy was sitting on the couch right behind you and laughed, your little ears perked up and you turned your head to see who it was who made that familiar sound. I knew right then that you were special! I'd never seen a baby, only minutes old, react like that before! You are precious! Happy First Birthday, my son!

Our firstborn. She is like her dad in so many ways...always making jokes and writing stories. She brings life and excitement to our family!
Our sweet boy! He has such a tenderheart and loves to please people. He is alot like his mom. He is so patient and smart, I don't know how we ever got along without him.
Our little miracle! He is such a joy to have in our family! His brother and sister love and adore him. He is a bit stubborn and he loves to be tickled and he will smile at just about anyone who will give him the attention.
Nine years ago we met, fell in love, got married, had a kid, and then another, and then another. You know, the usual. I guess you could say we are a typical family who lead simple lives. I profoundly say that there is so much joy to be found in the typical and simple things of life. I am very much looking forward to what the next nine years will bring.
