Happy Birthday, Avery!


  Today is Avery’s Birthday, and guess what, it’s mine too!  She was the very best Birthday present I could ever ask for!

10 pounds 3 1/2 oz. 

3 days old in this photo!


Hard to believe this is our lil’ bitty Peanut, isn’t it!?



  Avery has always been sunshiney with the occasional storm clouds.

  She has such a heart for the Lord, loves to raise her hands in worship, and asks Him almost nightly to help her future husband be a Godly man and a Mr. Fix It like her daddy.



She beams when praised, and gets tearful when she can’t get it done the way she has imagined it should be accomplished.  But she has drive and stubborness that we are asking God to use for HIS glory!


She’ll being going to Preschool 3 days a week this year!  I will miss her terribly!


Oh my little one, you are growing up so so fast, you make Mommy’s heart ache to keep you a baby, but I know my job is to give you wings and prepare you for the day you will use them.
