Birthday Girl is 5!!!!

HaPpY HaPpY bIrThDaY rAe!!!!

Ran and I ate lunch with Rae and brought cupcakes for her class. She didn't know Ran was coming so she was very excited!!
Ran with his favorite 5 year old in the entire world!!!!!

I can not believe my baby is already
5 years old :(
Please note her favorite craft activity pushed aside for just a moment to do b-day cake....she loves to cut random shapes of paper and then tape, tape and just a little more tape!!
(her tape of choice is Ran's blue painters tape)

Modeling her new dress (Ali picked for her) and her new dress-up shoes!

Even at 5 yrs. money is always appreciated!!
We are soooo thankful to have our
"Rae of Sunshine"!!
That is exactly what she is....she can always brighten the day and lighten any moment :)
She gives the sweetest prayers, has her own way of "wording" sentences and keeps us laughing!
~Happy 5th Birthday Sweetie~

16 Years!!!!!

February 20, 1993
Atlanta, Georgia Temple

Our life together has flown by, although it is very difficult to remember life before "Us".
I guess it is because I don't want to! Ran has given me the life I always dreamed of, the support I prayed for and the friendship only he could offer.

I"m so very thankful my spirit recognized his the first moment I saw him!
Life isn't always perfect but I know our eternal love is and that's all I need to face each new day, despite the trials that may come.

~Our sweet children will always be a testament of our love~

16 years down.......Eternity to go..........

Our Musician

This is Nate's 4th year playing the cello in the school orchestra. He has been blessed with the talent of mucic and learns very quickly. We love to hear him practice, especially when he plays the church hymns! He had a performance last night. It was actually a practice for a competition they will be in at the end of the month. They did very well!
It has been my struggle for 4 years to get a good pic of him during a concert!!
This is the best I could get last night.
We are proud of him and his determination!

Ali's Date Night ;)

Ali was sooo excited that she was able to attend her first Daddy/daughter party at church!
It was a Valentine theme party with games and yummy treats. It was for all the activity day girls in Ali's group. They made sweet invitations for their "Daddy" and also made the decorations, which Ran commented were very cute!

~Ali loves her Popa~
They had a wonderful time! Ran said she had a huge smile on her face the entire evening. It is my prayer that all my girls will be blessed with future dates/mates as wonderful as their Popa!
