This is Alex - he is a month older than Harper. Harper was saying his name last night for the first time. I think they will be pretty good buds!
Most of the kids lined up waiting for a game. I love all these kids and their parents! One of my BIGGEST prayers is that Harper will always be surrounded by good friends. I think that your life can be SO directed by who you choose to spend time with. I pray that God gives her Godly and precious friends throughout her life.
The birthday girl Neely! She is one the smartest, most grown up 3 year olds I know. And her mother is one of my favorite people!
Cute little John Michael
The cute cookies my friend Robin made for the party!
I LOVE this!
These are all pictures I have had made in the same week in December three years in a row. The reason I love it is just looking at how much life changes in a year. It's also such a good reminder to me that we never know what a year may bring. Wonderful blessings or times of trial or pain. I look at that girl in 2008 who was a month away from having a baby. She had no idea that baby would be born so sick and would spend a month in the NICU. Then I look at me last year and think how blessed I felt and I would have never dreamed in a MILLION years that this year I would be 6 months pregnant with another girl!
It makes me wonder what 2011 will look like. Our life could be super blessed and I'm holding my two girls or we may have gone through tough times. Scott could lose his job, one of us could get sick, our parents could get sick, the girls could get sick.............but the one thing I know is no matter what the circumstances - God will be with us through it all. All 365 days!
I just hope this little girl always looks at me this way! ;-)
