Happy Birthday To Our FIVE YEAR OLD!

This big boy
Our oldest grandson
Is turning FIVE today.

He is pretty amazing!

His heart has compassion like you've never seen!
For people.
And for animals.
And for the feelings of others.

He is dagum "smart as a whip!"
And doesn't miss a trick......
Which is good AND bad!
He definitely keeps us on our toes!

I adore this boy!

I pray he uses his intelligence and compassion
to bless others.
And I pray he lives every day of his life 
for the one who created him.

Nonny loves you big B!

You and your 
toy loving 
friend loving
water loving

Happy Birthday BUDDY!
Love, Nonny

Happy Birthday To Our SIX YEAR OLD!

This baby girl was born six years ago.
She was grand #2, 
and we welcomed her to our family
 with so much excitement and anticipation of what it would be like 
to be grandparents to more than one grand!

She did not disappoint!

Good grief! How could we NOT love this smiling angel???!!!

You know when you are expecting your first baby and you wonder if you could EVER love another one like you loved the first one? That's exactly how it feels with the grands too. And then, the next one comes, and you love just as big as with the first!

A is stubborn and spunky;
artistic and fun
 independent and feisty
and has an opinion on all things related to fashion!!!
She is gorgeous and humble 
and knows EXACTLY what she wants,
....and I love everything about her!

"And though she be but little, she is FIERCE!"
William Shakespeare

Sweet A, 
I pray you take that precious, sweet, determined spirit 
and serve Jesus in a BIG way!

I really do love everything about you!
Happy Birthday!
Love, Nonny

Happy Birthday First Born

I was 19.
Didn't have a CLUE what I was doing.
But God, in His perfect ways
38 years ago,
Loaned me this boy to love:

He is still cute.
He is still my first born.
And he might even still wear initials on his shirt.

How in the world is he turning

I'm proud of you, B!
Go do great things.
And always remember the ONE 
who made you who you are.

Happy Birthday Ace!

Love, Mom and Dad

I'm Nonny To An EIGHT Year Old!

On the day of your birth I had no idea how much room I had in my heart to love you. 
You were one of the most alert babies I had ever seen.

I fell completely in love with you....and you loved me in return.

You still do.

And I still do too.

You have a servant's heart and always put others before yourself.
That's a quality that makes me so proud of you.

Girlie, If you don't become a school teacher, I will be SHOCKED! It's your favorite thing in the whole wide world to play!

You are more than ready to be EIGHT! The world needs more girls like you. Go be a light! 
Nonny is proud of you!

Happy Birthday E. C. !
Nonny loves you BIG!

Happy 4th Birthday C + T

They were born WAY TOO EARLY and fought for every breath just to be here. But God, in His gracious way, allowed them to bless the socks off us! 

I pray every day that their lives will always be a reflection of HIM.

May God Bless these boys all the days of their lives!

Happy Birthday C + T.

Nonny loves you BIG!
