Happy 4th!!!

We hope that everyone has a great family day planned. The boys are super excited to shoot fireworks, and Jason is pretty amp'd to grill. All of this after we do a few house projects. I love the 4th, it's a day that helps me take a second to remember all the freedoms that I enjoy. I know that sometimes as Americans we fail to see the many opportunities that we have here. It wasn't until I went to college and started making friends with people from other countries that I really saw all the many opportunities that we have. I am grateful for that. Not saying this is a perfect country, there are none, but I am glad that I live in the USA. I am thankful for are military servicemen, like my brother, who risk their lives to protect freedoms that I hold dear. I think we all have alot to be grateful for on this Independence Day. I love the quote from the Gettysburg address that says,
"That we here highly resolve, that these dead shall not have died in vain. That this nation shall have a new birth of freedom."

We hope that everyone has a happy and safe fourth !!

Happy Birthday SAM ! ! !

Happy Birthday to our sweet Samuel!!!! He has excited to go to Cars2 and open presents, of course the boys are more excited for him to open presents than he is but once the presents are out fo the box that will change, lol.

We are so happy that Sam joined our family 3 years ago. It was a super scary delivery, but we now see the way he entered the world as indicitive of his personality. He is always high energy, and has zero fear. He tumbles with the big boys and cuddles Luke like a second mom. He has a smile that lights up a room and reminds us that nothing is really that bad. We love you Sam and are so glad that you share your light with us. Happy Birthday Love!!!!
