"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Sadie baby

Can I still call her that since she's turning one this week?
Well, I am going to until we have another one to call baby!

Sister had her first birthday party today.

And in my normal fashion, it was simple and low-key and oh-so enjoyable.

We had family, cupcakes, cookies, balloons, gifts and one sweet Princess. What more do you need to get a bunch of giggles?

The kids swam while the moms and dads chatted in the shade and loved on the babies.

Singing "Happy birthday Sadie!" That's one huge cupcake!
She loved the cupcakes and cookies! She got her momma's sweet tooth!
And she knows how to make a mess!
Thanks to our families for making Sadie and her family feel loved and for helping us to celebrate her precious life.

I can't quit thinking about how this time last year we had no idea she was coming into our lives.

I love her story and how she flew into our lives faster than we could have ever anticipated.
I love her sweet personality and how she is so girly, yet can put up with her brothers really well. She growls like them and can scream at the top of her lungs when she needs them to back up. It's funny to watch her work them over by screaming.

I will share more, but wanted to post some pictures since I haven't posted in a week. It's been crazy 'round here lately! But I LOVE it! Will share more soon!
