Happy Birthday Evan!

Nearly five years ago we had a 8 month old baby whom we felt so blessed just to have after quite a few tests, medications and a lot of prayers. I still remember going to work one day and telling my co-workers that after days of being exhausted and a little nauseated that if I didn't know better I would think I was pregnant again... I also vividly remember putting my 8 month old down for a nap and then watching the little pink lines appear on the stick on the bathroom counter. So full of emotion, I sat by little Leo as he slept and I wept tears of joy and wonderment. I whispered thanks to my Heavenly Father and also a plea that I would be good enough to mother two precious miracles. I then tried to get myself together enough to call Tracy at work to tell him that he was going to be a daddy again! Our 2nd little miracle turned FOUR today! He is such a fun and smart little boy and we are so thankful that we were entrusted with him. I will post pictures when I get them uploaded. Right now I must make sure that all of the little party-ers are snug in their beds.
Happy Birthday Evan!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EVAN!! Man I can't believe he's that old. I don't want to believe he's that old, cause that means Preston's not too far behind!
Chris is going to be up there the last week of February. He says he wants to pop up to Logan and hang out with Tracy if you guys will be around.

Happy Birthday Evan!! Hope you had a wonderful day. We are going to come to Utah for Easter. So we are looking forward to playing with you. 4 is a great age to be. What kind of birthday party did you have?
Love,
Ryann, Brennan, and Liam

I'm not stalking, but I am curious! I was looking at your lone picture of your children (hidden under masks)on your FB page and wondered if you had a blog. Sure enough...

:) You children are beautiful! Happy birthday to your four year old.

Cheers!
