Happy, Happy Birthday!!!

Guess who has a birthday today? 

An ELEVENTH birthday!

IMG_3048 At 8:31 (ish…I know…bad mom….) on November 19, 1998, Ethan Andrew was brought into our family.  He completed us.  We were so thrilled to have him be a part of our lives.

In 11 years, a great deal has changed for all of us.  We still live in the same home, which is awesome!  We have many of the same friends. ..  But lots of changes.  School colors/song/mascot have changed.  We now whole grade share with our neighbors from grades 6-12 (big move for Eman next year!) We’ve traveled to different parts of the country.  A grandma has died.  Mom has gone to work at the school…Ethan has 3 older siblings that can DRIVE (and one that has left home for college!  (blessed child…Caleb caled his little brother tonight to wish him a happy birthday…what a kid!)

Ethan is greatly loved.  He’s loved by his siblings (even though they might disagree at times…they really are good big brothers and a sister!)  He is loved by his school and church classmates and friends.  He’s loved by his cousins/aunts/uncles/grandparents (and we can’t wait to see some of them next week and the rest of them next month!)  And of course, he’s dearly loved by his old mom and dad!  He is one of the joys of our lives!

Ethan has a personality that just makes you grin.  He almost always has a grin on his face.  He’s a jokester and enjoys being the life of the party.  He has a helpful spirit (when he isn’t being pulled away from video games, LOL) and he likes to have a bit of friendly competition in the sports field.

I can’t begin to express how blessed we are to call this boy “son”.  He jut makes me smile!


I baked and frosted the brownies…big sister, Rachel decorated with icing and sprinkles!
