Growing older....

On the eve of y'all turning 7, I'm feeling nostalgic...so forgive me for the following sappy post....

I can't believe how much you both have grown over the years- physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
It is a pleasure to be your mother and I can't wait to see the plans our Lord has for you both...

Daddy and I started a birthday tradition on your first birthday of filling your bedroom ceiling with balloons (the first four years this meant we crouched in the doorway  to let the balloons go when we heard stirring  because a certain someone was convinced one of you would choke on a falling balloon)

What started as a tradition for you all, has also become a tradition for us, as parents.  We both look forward to praying over you each and discussing funny and meaningful  points throughout the year as we blow up the balloons (in between Daddy inhaling helium and talking like Donald Duck!) 

We are in awe of you both and love watching you grow! Y'all have taught us so much......
we hope to return the favor!
