Singing about Christ and a costume party

Here are our precious littles practicing their parts for
our church's children's Christmas musical.  They are so cute to watch
as they practice.  No one is on key or even singing the same word at once,
but they each give it all they've got to sing these sweet songs.

Here is our littlest car of the family.  This was Elijah's first costume day
at preschool, and Kevin got to take him and see all of the cuteness of the morning.
I was with our biggest car (Ted) while he was having dental surgery.

What a privilege to be parents to our four amazing children.

She is officially 8 today!

Wow, we can't believe Sophia is 8 today!  Last week we celebrated with a big family party.  Today it was just the six of us.  Kevin fixed her pancakes for breakfast, we had a quick bite at Wendy's for lunch, and I made her a yummy Italian dinner tonight along with cake and ice cream.

Sophia seemed to enjoy her birthday, but when she was opening her presents today and last week,you could tell she didn't quite know what to make of it all.  With as many birthdays as we celebrate around here, she will quickly get used to them!  :)

Happy Birthday to our sweet and beautiful daughter.  Thanking God for bringing Sophia to us forever.
