Tracy / August 12, 2010

Birthday Blessings

Thank you for the numerous birthday greetings this week! You all helped make my week extra-special. I had the best birthday– Here are some highlights… Gifts and cards from the children…all planned with such care! …and amongst others, a really beautiful teapot cozy and coasters: these were handmade by my sweet Mom. It was definitely a birthday to remember!!

Meredith’s Birthday

Jacob’s 14th Birthday

Tracy / October 23, 2009

The second birthday this week, Jacob turned 14! He is changing by the day and becoming a man right before my eyes.
