Happy 1st Birthday Brooklyn!

Today is our niece's 1st birthday and we were very lucky to be able to travel to NC last Thursday night and stay until Sunday morning to celebrate her birthday and spend some time with family. The "birthday princess" had a Princess and the Frog themed birthday complete with badmitton, cake, presents, family, and friends. What a special day!

Let me just say that after three mornings of waking up to sweet Brooklyn "talking" while eating her breakfast at such an early hour I was sad to wake up to the quiet this morning at our house (after sleeping 11 hours). I had gotten used to her precious little sounds she makes in the morning while deciding what she is and isn't going to eat that morning. My sister always talked when she ate when we were younger so it brought back special memories for me hearing Brooklyn do the same thing.

We hope and pray that this beautiful girl knows how many people love and care for her and her Mommy and Daddy. Our lives are truly blessed to have the three of them in it and we look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with you guys in the years to come! Happy Birthday Brooklyn! Uncle Allan & Aunt Suz love you very much!

Yep-these are our husbands! Love them!
Allan & I are so blessed to have such a large family. Having only grown up with one sister myself it's always fun to spend time with my other mom and sisters when we all get together. Not that I don't love spending time with any of our four brothers but girl time is always filled with great talks, a shopping trip here and there, and funny stories about the boys!


  1. It was a fun weekend! Glad we all could go!
