Happy Birthday You Two!!

Here is a little birthday tribute to these two kids of mine.  Their birthdays are 2 days a part and what a blessing both of them are to our family.  It is a treat to have a daughter who grows up to be one of your best friends.  She is wise beyond her years and a example to me and I love spending time with her. I only wish she lived closer:(   Happy Birthday Sis - We Love YOU

Nate was about 2 1/2 when this picture was taken.  Where has all the time gone??  He had a special birthday this year - Turning 12 is a pretty big deal!!  He is super excited to receive the priesthood and  pass the sacrament in church.  When the Bishop presented him in our ward to be made a Deacon he asked Nate to bare his testimony.  I think I held my breath the entire time because I was so nervous for him.  It was beautiful and heart felt.  I was so proud of him.  I am blessed to be his mom.  He continues to teach and stretch me as a parent and I am grateful for that.  His love is unconditional and he has a very tender, forgiving heart.  There has been a couple of times where I have asked myself...."Why can't I remember his birth weight'?  And then it dawns on me....He's adopted!!!  He had my heart the first time I laid eyes on him:)   Happy Birthday Nate Dawg - We Love YOU
