A Dozen!!!

It is so hard to believe, but my oldest child turns 12 today! Happy birthday, Shana! We are so thankful that God has blessed our lives with you - you are a beautiful girl, inside and out. In honor of this special day, here is a walk down memory lane:

Whew - time flies! We love you so much, Shana, and hope you have a wonderful 12th birthday! 

For all you are, and all you'll be
For everything you mean to me
Though I don't understand
I know you're from the Father's hand.

How can it be, that you are you?
He thought you up and so you grew
Because you're mine, it must be true
That He was thinking of me too.
-Michael Card 


  1. Oh my goodness....makes me cry! Love that girl SO MUCH!!! Big hugs to Shana Raena. That picture of her in your living room, wearing a v-necked striped T with her hair curled looks SO MUCH like Mom!

  2. Well, Larisa, I thought the same thing when I saw that picture. What fun to see all those pics again! Can't believe she's 12! Happy Birthday, Shana, we love you!!

  3. Happy Birthday Shana!!
