and woke up a 4 year old! We filled her room with balloons last year and it was so much fun, we had to do it again. I was anxiously watching the monitor for her to wake up and she rolled over and saw them and whispered "It's my birthday! Hooray!" before jumping out of bed!
Even Nora Kate got to be a part of the fun!
She requested cinnamon toast with pink sprinkles as her birthday breakfast and we sang Happy Birthday, which she loved.
We spent a great day together at her favorite place in the world... the Science Museum! It was a day all about her and I know she felt special and celebrated!
Stephen and I were married in December of 2004. We met through a very persistent friend who insisted that if we met, we would get married. Sure enough, he was right and 7 months later we said I do! In the years since, we have suffered great loss but are learning daily to rely on God and each other, knowing that we can rise to use tragedy for good! We welcomed Olive Kay into the world in August of 2009 and our lives haven't been the same since! She is a firecracker and makes every day worth waking up for! On her 3rd birthday, we found out we were going to be blessed with another little one. Nora Kate joined our family in April of 2013 and has brought even more joy into our lives! We can't wait for the adventures we will have with the two of them.
