    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

birthdays!!!

what child does not enjoy these? with five nieces and one nephew in my family, we celebrate birthdays for our little ones six times a year. i never grow tired of seeing their excited faces (usually covered in cake) and their quick, little bodies running around, playing with one another, showing us their latest tricks, and ultimately revealing their gifts. it’s all very thrilling!

my sister’s daughter celebrated her 3rd birthday on tuesday. *g* and i joined the party in the evening, and were greeted at the door by the birthday girl, her screaming older sister, their screaming younger brother, and their newest sibling. screaming with excitement, that is. ;-)

after delicious food, some very scrumptious cake, gift-giving, and gift-playing, the three young children ran around the house with us. these photos may look blurry, but they are also full of family, love, and a good sort of chaos. this is what life is all about.

    Well written my youngest! You captured the madness the mayhem and the sweetness with the photos. You didn’t even have to post a blog. They are angels but they are also very scary. That twirling shot makes me want to hide. Well done E.
