I admire Ann for her ability to take time to acknowledge the Lord's hand in her life. Ann has plenty to keep her busy yet she is able to step back for peaceful and contemplative moments and see life clearly. I know she does this because it is evident in the beautiful blogs she posts. I believe that it is because of her acknowledgment of the blessings she's received from the Lord that He is so willing to give her more! I wish you more as well! Happy Birthday! Love, Ash

Sincerity. She manifests that attribute in all her endeavors and relationships. I believe that is why she is so successful and sought after. She sincerely seeks after truth and light and obtains it. She sincerely seeks to create meaningful art and images and achieves those. She sincerely wishes to nurture and provide for her family and continues to do so. She sincerely strives to do what is right and is an example to all around her. Because she is sincere and honest people are drawn to her. I am honored to claim her as my mom! Happy Birthday! Love, Ashley

Eli adores Jacob! If you couldn't tell by the way he is snuggling up to him in this picture. Jacob is great with our kids. He plays with, indulges, entertains (with the aid of his trusty phone) and even babysits our kids. He makes for an awesome uncle and a great brother. I'm glad you are near!

Smart & Wise!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JORDAN! Jordan and I are only 14 months apart. When we were in high school we were able to take a couple of classes together. Physiology was one of those classes. I remember Jordan always aced the tests with such ease. I always seemed to study twice as long and hard but never did as well as she did! She's just smart! But more importantly she has wisdom. Jordan is a fountain of both philosophical and spiritual insight. She is one of those I seek after when I am in need of advice! I love you Jordan! Love, Ashley

Tongue clicking mimicking!

Ivy doesn't do a whole lot of mimicking so I found it
amusing that she was trying to copy my tongue clicking!
