Happy 37th Birthday, Angel

For the last 14 years I’ve had the privilege of waking up nearly every day by her side. She’s selfless, patient, kind, and fearless. She’s also the the most grace-filled person I know. I love her dearly and she makes me an exceedingly rich man. 

To celebrate, We went out on a double date with a dear friend who also shares Angel’s birthday, and Grace made her famous triple layer Chocolate Ganache Cake. 

Grace’s triffle

She has been making her own birthday cake for years now. 

This little number is a homemade chocolate bowl with three different kinds of cake, topped with vanilla bean whipped cream with raspberries. 

We loved celebrating a 13 year old. 

Lunch date

Even though it is Grace’s birthday today, she was gracious to let us take Max and Adie out for their birthday’s. Yes, we are a tish behind with Adie’s January birthday.

Last night as a twelve year old 

Grace, we love you beyond words. It’s a joy to watch you grow and have a ton of fun with you on the journey. Thanks for being a great sport.  

Happy 5th Birthday Max

Max,

Oh how we love you. 

We love your eye lashes, the way you say Lydia, and your flexibility.  Grace loves it when you help her in the kitchen. I love your morning hugs and snuggles. 

It was a big day for you – complete with reverse peristalsis because you ate too much cake which earned you $4 for not puking in our bed.
