Happy 17th Birthday, Kassidy!!!

My beautiful daughter, today you turn 17! It's hard to believe this is your last year as a child, but never forget that no matter how old you get, you will always be my baby girl. I am so lucky to be your mom. You have grown from an awesome kid into an amazing young woman and one of my closest friends. I cherish our time together and enjoy hanging out with you, even when you talk about things I don't understand. HA! I am looking forward to walking through this next year with you. So many exciting things are coming up and I know you have a bright future ahead! Always remember that I am here to listen... to laugh with you, to cry with you, to talk baseball with you, and to give you advice, when and if you need it.

I hope you have a great birthday, Kass!! I can't wait to celebrate with you.

Happy Birthday!
I love you to the moon and back.

Love,
Mom

Happy 15th Birthday, Kameron!!!

Happy Birthday Kameron! Today you turn 15. You've been through a lot this year, my boy... Summer ended with a lot of change and trial in your life. Starting high school meant leaving a lot of friends who have been with you for the last 3 years, and I know it was hard to say goodbye. I know you have a lot of work to do this year and goals you want to accomplish, and I want you to know that we will be with you every step of the way. We are always here to support you and help you however we can. Even if we are unable to help, or you are struggling more than we can see, please remember that you can always lean on the Lord. He will never leave you or forsake you.

I hope this year is a good year for you, my son. A year of growth: personally and spiritually. A year of restoration with those you love. A year of peace. And most of all a year of love. Keep working hard to be the very best Kameron you can be. We know you are capable of amazing things and we can't wait to see what your future holds!

We love you so much!
Have a great birthday!!

Love,
Mom

Happy 12th Birthday, Kennedy!!!

Dear Kennedy, the day is finally here! It's your birthday! I can't believe that you are 12 years old! You've grown a lot this year in every area of your life. I've loved watching you mature as a dancer, a student, a model, and a young lady.

I love spending time with you, Kennedy. I never know what the day will hold or what adventures we will go on. I love watching you get excited about the little things - staying in a hotel, omelets for breakfast, crashing our date nights, or a spontaneous trip to Starbucks. I even loved hearing you get excited about your birthday every day for the last 6 months. There's always something to look forward to!

I hope you have a great day, my baby. I'll be in with cupcakes for your class, we'll celebrate with your friends at dance this afternoon and then we'll go to your birthday dinner. A whole day of celebrating YOU! (And I'm sure that daddy will make you an omelet for breakfast.)

In just a couple weeks you'll be graduating from elementary school, one more milestone, one more thing to be excited about! Just remember as you grow, that we are here to be your biggest cheerleaders and your biggest fans! We love you so much!!

Happy Birthday my little munchkin.

To the moon and back,

Love, Mom

Happy 9th Birthday, Keeghan!!!

Happy Birthday, baby boy!! Today you are 9 years old. I love the way you slowly work up to your birthday... not counting down the weeks or even days, but making plans like staying up until 3:03am so you can be awake on the minute you were born. I love that you picked your birthday dinner place because they have your favorite blue punch... and that you have no idea what you're going to eat there!

This has been such a year of growth for you, Keeghan. I have loved watching you soak up everything you are learning in school, and as always, you share every detail with us... whether we are ready to hear it or not. I love that you are so creative... whether you are writing, drawing or building with Legos, your imagination is endless.

You have worked so hard this year at karate! I get so excited to see you move up with every belt. I have also loved watching you dance this year. Your determination to learn something new and do your best is awesome. Seeing your smiles and hearing the stories about your new friends there has been so much fun!

And now we move into another year. I can never guess what that will hold for you, as you make each day as different and exciting as possible, but whatever happens, I'm ready to travel the road with you. I'm ready to learn with you and listen to your stories. I'm ready to see the new things you will try and be there to encourage you along the way. Continue to live every day to the fullest, Keeghan! Thanks for always taking us along for the ride.

I love you so much!

Happy Birthday!

Love, Mom
