He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

Happy Birthday Papa!

Today is our Papa (my dad's) birthday! Papa is a very special person in our family for several reasons. We don't go a day without Austin asking something about Papa and usually it is "Mommy, when can I see my Papa?" My son is definitely a fan of his Papa and I love watching the relationship that is so naturally developing between them. My dad is one of the most giving, humble and integrity-filled men I know and I am truly blessed to have him as a father. He has literally been the rock of our family. He is the main reason that our family is so close and it is through him I learned how to relate to my heavenly Father. I love how excited my kiddos get when we go to Waco to visit him and my mom and how genuine he is with them. Papa, we love you dearly and praise God for your life and the HUGE impact you have had on each of us.

Austin was so proud of this sign we made for our Papa and I wish everyone could have heard him practicing the Happy Birthday song to sing to Papa today. It was precious!

Check out the new hair do! I chopped my hair off a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely LOVE it!

Our sweet Audrey was being a tad bit difficult (right before naptime on a Sunday - you understand...:) so this was the only okay picture with her in it. Good times! I try not to stress about these things...
Papa, you are wonderfully amazing dad, father-in-law and grandpa and mentor! We love you!
