I know I'm a week late in posting this, but Happy Birthday to Lydia and Brady!!  On the 15th we celebrated Lydia's 5th birthday and on the 19th we celebrated Brady's 4th birthday!  What a blessing these two kids are!
Lydia... a sweet and caring sister, Lydia is a good friend and playmate!  She is a nurturer at heart (her little brother Chayce adores her!) and a real servant (so quick to offer to help with dishes or other cleaning around the house).  Some of our favorite memories from this year with Lydia are:  watching her grow in her Spanish, seeing her grow to adore Juliana and enjoy helping her around the house, seeing her perseverance in learning to ride a bike and how to swim, hair-styling and nail-painting times together, getting bread from the panaderia together, early morning "good morning" hugs, doing exercise videos together, watching her diligently work to learn her letters and numbers (she has such learned so much this year!).  Lydia, we love you so much!  You are beautiful, inside and out!  You are fearfully and wonderfully made, and we thank the Lord for you!  Happy 5th Birthday, sweet girl!

Brady...our goofy, fun, sweet BOY, who is all-BOY!!  Brady makes us laugh so much!  He is a patient and sweet brother to Chayce and a willing participant in the "dramatic play" of his sisters!  Some of our favorite memories from this year are:  reading books in the hammock, seeing his ability in and love for memorizing scripture, watching him help his brother learn many new skills (from playing baseball to going potty!), watching him grow in confidence in the water (jumping in the waves and starting to swim on his own a bit), hearing him speak more and more Spanish, and playing baseball, soccer, basketball, football on the a sport and Brady is there and ready to play! Brady, we love you so much, buddy!  You are such a blessing to us and we thank our Lord for you!  We love just how He has made you!  Happy 4th Birthday, Son!
