Happy 16th Birthday, Kassidy!!!

Happy sweet 16 to my sweet baby girl! I'm not really sure how it's possible that we blinked and you are suddenly half way through high school and old enough to drive. Yet somehow, here we are.

We are so proud of the young woman you have become, Kassidy. You are confident, smart, and have an amazing plan set for your future. You love your friends with a passion and hold them close. You're not afraid to be who you are, even if others tease you for it. We are so excited to see what the future brings you and walk next to you step by step...

As you go through these next years, never forget to rely on the Lord to help you make the tough decisions in life... and they will come... He will never lead you astray. And even if dad and I aren't right next to you, we are only a phone call away. We love you so much!

Happy Birthday!

Love, Mom

Happy 14th Birthday, Kameron!!!

Happy birthday, Kameron! Another year has come and gone and you are another year older and another year... uh... funnier. And yes, another year wiser too! It's so hard to believe you are in your last year of middle school. It seems like you are racing towards the finish line so fast these days. You are growing into such an awesome young man. You have learned to make a name for yourself everywhere you go... even if that name IS Bacon... and everyone who meets you can't help but remember you with a smile.

I hope you have a great year, my son. Take the time to  really enjoy your time before high school and continue to make the most of every day! The years will continue to fly by faster and faster as you get older. Slow down and always remember who you are... an awesome son, an amazing brother, a goofy kid deep down inside... Never lose your sense of humor, your quirky look on life, and especially your love of... bacon.

We love you so very, very much!
Happy Birthday!

Love,
Mom

Happy 11th Birthday, Kennedy!

My beautiful Kennedy, today when you wake up, I can finally answer your daily question with a very excited YES! You've been asking me every morning for over 2 weeks, "Is it my birthday, now?!" Now. Today you turn 11! You've been "way close" for so long and I know you have been so anxious for this day!

This has been such a fun year for you, my girl! I have loved watching you grow physically, mentally and emotionally. I love seeing your sense of humor grow all the time and I love seeing you laugh with your friends and siblings. I'm so proud of you for finishing another year of dance (almost) and watching your growth as a dancer. You really shined on stage this year, and your hard work has paid off!

Yesterday, when we celebrated your birthday with your class, I loved standing back and listening to your classmates tell you what a good friend you are, how they love that you're always happy, that you're a great dancer and of course, that they love your sense of style. ;) You are surrounded by a great group of friends who know how special and amazing you are. Never let go of those friendships!

I can't wait until you wake up so we can spend the day together, and tonight we will be off to your birthday dinner at Olive Garden!

Happy Birthday my princess!

I love you to the moon and back!

Happy 8th Birthday, Keeghan!!!

Dear Keeghan, you made it!! Today is your 8th birthday!! I can't believe another year has gone by so quickly. This has been a really challenging year for you, my son. In some ways it's been amazing, and in other ways it's been rough. I have loved watching you continue to grow and learn about everything around you... even if that means you ask me 5 million questions every day! I have loved watching you get stronger as you continue your karate classes, and take pride as you move up each belt. I have loved watching your sense of humor develop... similarly to your brother's, but with your own spin on things... I love hearing you laugh with your siblings and create new and amazing things every day.

It's been hard to watch you struggle this year  though too, as you find your way in this world and figure out what's important in life. I know some days are hard for you and I wish I could take that from you; but I also know that you are on the right path, and soon enough, with the Lord's help, you will be back on track and continue being the awesome kid that you are!

We love you so much, Keeghan! You are the perfect "baby" of our family, though you're not really a baby anymore... You are a wonderful, fun brother, a great friend, and a fabulous son. I'm so glad that God chose me to be your mom. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and I'm so glad you don't have school so we can spend it together! Ice cream for lunch, to the movies to see the new Avenger's Movie and then off to Red Robin for your annual birthday dinner... I can't wait!!

Happy Birthday, little man! I love you to the moon and back!

Love,
Mom
