Zeke's Seventh Birthday

My sweet little boy turned seven today. Kaelyn "helped" Nonnie make the cake and all the family came over to help us sing and celebrate. Fun times.

What do I love about this sweet boy?
-his love for life
-his joy
-his excitement
-the way that he draws people to him...he is a MAGNET!
-his enthusiasm for play
-his kind heart
-his sweet spirit
-his empathy for others
-his hugs and affection for his momma!
-his strong character
-his smile

This face says it all...

Happy Birthday Zekey! I love you to pieces!

Kaelyn Comes Face-To-Face with a Poodle

Both of my children have a love for animals that is beyond my comprehension. With this affection, they also have very little respect for animals they do not know. They assume that every dog, cat, horse, or goat is just as friendly as our pet Bucky. It came as no surprise one afternoon that I spoke with Sheyla (our babysitter) to find out that Kaelyn had gotten bitten in the face by a poodle. At first the bite didn't look too bad, but by the following morning, there was so much swelling that I began to get concerned. Mom and I took K in to see the pediatrician and he gave her a strong round of antibiotics for the growing infection. Fortunately, the antibiotics did the job and she healed up pretty quickly...whew.

'Tiny' Little Lillian

Oh...I got to snuggle this little sugar lump on Sunday and she is SOOO yummy! I can't believe how big she has gotten over the last couple of months! And she looks HUGE against tiny Reecie.
