1Thessalonians 5:18~


Our sweet boy turned 5 on Saturday.

What a blessing he is! 1 Thessalonians 5:18 sums up his little heart perfectly... In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you....

A more thankful person I have never met than our sweet son. A day doesn't go by when he doesn't thank us for reading him a story, or saying prayers with him, or taking him to church, or making a meal...or a multitude of other things. He has the sweetest spirit and a heart of gold. He loves his brothers and sisters so much, and he just knows his Daddy hung the moon.

What a fun, sweet, energy filled little treasure from above!

We asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday and he said he wanted to go to..

CiCi's Pizza
The Park
Sweet Tomatoes
The Grocery Store

He's so funny. We went to CiCi's, the Park, and the grocery store. He chose a farm theme for his birthday, and we had a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet little cousin!
He is no longer little thowe! He looks so big and healthy! I remember the first thanksgiving we shared with him and he was so much smaller! He sat in my lap on the floor and we just played. One of the best memories that I have! Love and miss you all!

Renee...... he's going to be a big ol' Linebacker for ProFootball with a million dollar smile and a mission to take the gospel to folks. I just know it.

I can't believe this is the one who never smiled. He has a contagious smile!!
Funny that he wanted to shop for a b-day thrill. LOL.

he's precious! I still remember when he would ask to be held by anyone and everyone that came in because he was so desperate to belong. I'm so glad that he belongs to you :) Give him a hug from me!!
