Happy Birthday, Kristianna!

I became a mom 12 years ago Many times I wonder what exactly my life was like before children. At times I think of a quote I heard once that first born children should be disposable for their own protection! :) Kristianna has had the opportunity to see us in action the longest. I cannot believe my little girl is so old now!
The birthday girl got to celebrate with friends, bob for peaches, play on the slip-and-slide, with a Frisbee, go rock climbing and have a crazy, fun time! Isabel, Wesley, and I picked more strawberries that morning for her favorite cake. Aunt Heidi was there to help her enjoy her party as well.
I am very proud of my beautiful daughter who keep us on task and informed on all the events of the day. She has grown up so much this year of changing environments. Kristianna has been "the new kid" with more grace and maturity then I could have anticipated. I have enjoyed sharing her life as much as she has enjoyed sharing my shoes! While it seems that a dolphin trainer may not be in her future anymore, it is exciting to see what God has in store for her.
