One Year Shy of a Decade - No Way!




I can hardly believe that 9 sweet years ago Jaycie Ann Fowlkes entered our lives. She has been such a wonder to watch, from her early little squirms and coos to her current crazy dance moves and pre-adolescent insights. I am so proud of her, proud that she is compassionate, funny, smart, and creative. I love her sense of individual expression. I am amazed at how her humor mimics her dad's. It warms my heart when her heart softens following moments of (ahem) redirection. Watching her sing songs of praise, hearing her pray, and observing her efforts to live God's way are some of my proudest moments. Thank you, Lord, for our delightful, original, amazing Jaycie.

Please tell sweet Jaycie Happy Birthday for us!!! I'm sorry that we forgot her b-day! I remembered it yesterday and Alyson wasn't happy with me. : ) We'll send her something soon!
She is such a sweet girl and we're so blessed to have you all as some of our oldest (ahem) and dearest friends.
Love you all!
