Ten years ago today, we welcomed a beautiful little girlie into our lives who forever changed our family. We are so thankful that God blessed us with Hailey Joy as our firstborn child. As we often tell Hailey, she sets such a wonderful example for her younger siblings of what it means to serve others, be a peacemaker, put others before herself, and bless others. I often tell Hailey that she reminds me of my mom for which I am incredibly grateful! I love the relationship that we share with one another and look forward to the coming years. As I reflect on this past year what I am most aware of is the numerous ways that Hailey selflessly serves our family with joy. It has been a privilege to watch and observe the girl that Hailey is growing into and I thank God for the work He is doing in her life!
Four years ago today we welcomed another beautiful little girlie into our lives! Callie Beth burst into this world 15 minutes after we arrived at the hospital and has been going full speed every since! I love how all our girlies all have such different personalities (well, at least on most days I’m thankful for this!) because it makes every day an adventure. Callie is the kind of kid that is either completely happy or completely not-so-happy. Thankfully, on most days we get to see the happy Callie girl. She is incredibly full of life! Pretty much every day involves dress-up, dancing, singing, twirling, and jumping. She loves to be a big kid and do whatever her older siblings are doing, which probably explains why she learned to ride a 2 wheeler without training wheels at the young age of 3 1/2! It has been neat to see her develop different relationships and friendships with each sibling. Over this past year, we have been encouraged to see Callie grow in self-control, patience, and kindness. We love her spunk and are so thankful that God chose to bless us with her!
