Sweet Lex

After working on some things in my office early this morning, I headed back into my room.  I walked into the bathroom, and a sleepy Lexi was shuffling towards the sink.  I gave her a big hug and she responded in kind.  I turned her around so her back was facing me and her front was facing the sink.  As I looked at her in the mirror I said, "You know what makes me happy?  When I see your beautiful face."  Not realizing that I could see her reflection, Lexi immediately turned 180 degrees and looked up at me with a huge smile.  She wanted to let me see her beautiful face and be happy.

Sweet, tender, poignant moment.  I am surrounded each day by so many precious angels.


Birthday Pics...

Christi has carried on a tradition that started in her family.  Every year on your birthday, you get breakfast in bed.  Not only that, but you get to choose what it's going to be.  Needless to say, this is a tradition that has been warmly embraced by our children.  Mangos and sausage seem to be a common theme for most of the kids.  (I guess I influenced the tradition as well!  My love of mangos, developed as a missionary in Thailand, has been passed on to most of the kids:)
