To my little boys

 Happy 5th Birthday to my sweet little boys!

It's beyond my wildest dreams that we've been blessed to have you both as sons for five years already.
I thought when your 5th birthday hit, I'd be full of sadness for the loss of my "babies" and for how quickly the time had gone.  
But today, I'm overwhelmed with gratitude for the sweet, loving, polite little men you have become.  
You need grace everyday, just as your mommy does too.  
I pray you will continue to learn about Jesus and the saving grace He gives to us freely.

 Carson, you are spunky and funny!
I pray you will continue loving to make people smile and laugh!
Your joy is contagious!
 McClain, you are loving and tender-hearted!
I pray you will continue to have love and compassion for those around you!
Your hugs and kisses are the best!
2 Peter 3:18
But grow in the grace and knowledge 
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 
To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

Happy Birthday to some of my favorite boys! They are so sweet and down right hilarious. We love them!

Henry has "had them over" many times this week. He calls them up. They come and play trains. Henry has conversations with them. Seriously. And little weird....:)
