Happy 14th Birthday Sissy!!!

Fourteen awesome years with this sweet girl!
She is growing up so fast...BEAUTIFUL inside and out!!!
Sissy, you are a JOY to do life with :)  I'm so thankful that Jesus entrusted us with your sweet life! You are an AMAZING young woman of God ~ Jesus is strong in you and He SHINES through you and pours out of you to those around you. I love your heart for Him and for His people. I love what a sensitive heart He has given you for those in need. I can only imagine the plans He has for you to be His Hands and Feet and change the world! Keep pressing on in Him!!
On our way to a special birthday dinner ~ just the girls since the boys are gone ;)
A few of your sweet friends joined us for dinner :)
Super fun night!
Lots of silliness and laughing :)
So proud of you!! You love your baby sister so well ~ she is BLESSED beyond measure to have you (and so am I!!). Always by her side helping her, always being silly and playing with her....I love to watch you joyfully and selflessly give of yourself ~
I see Jesus in you!
And your new siblings from Haiti have no idea how great they will have it when they get home and have you and the boys and Kaylee all here to love on them :)
We love you, Babe!!! Happy Happy Birthday :))))

Cutest Minnie Ever ;)

We had family and friends over for some super-fun trick-or-treating ;)  Kaylee doesn't remember trick-or-treating last year...so this was kind of like her first time. Same with cousin Claire...although Claire had more fun passing out the candy back at our house with the boys than she did doing the actual trick-or-treating
 Cutest Minnie Ever!!
 Cousin Anna is the BEST!!
LOVE that Sissy and cousin Rachel dressed up and trick-or-treated with the younger girls ;)  The "big" boys stayed home to pass out candy and had a BLAST!!

We are known in the neighborhood for handing out BIG candy bars that say, "Jesus loves you BIG!"...kids get super excited  when they are handed a large candy bar...and our kids have fun shinning Jesus' Light on an otherwise dark night ;)
