Birthday Bash!

We are 2 years old now!!!!! Wow, what a ride it has been. We wanted to keep it kind of low key this year, so we kept it small. We let everyone know that Sunday was the kids birthday and if they wanted to stop by they were welcome. We had a house full for about 4 hours. It was a constant rotation of people. It is amazing to see how many people love us. The kids did pretty good. We decided not to give them a nap. They handled it really well until everyone left at around 5:00. I had to fix dinner and Rob was in bed trying to get a nap before work. As you will see in the video, they were not happy campers. By the time I got dinner ready Landon had given up on me. He couldn't hang on any longer. You will see what I mean in the video.

Rob and I have been so blessed by our kids. They are the best thing to ever happen to us. They challenge us in ways we never dreamed. They have brought us together closer than we ever thought possible. We have grown as a couple this past year and are learning to lean on each other more. I think we both were trying to spare the other the burden of what we were going through individually. We wanted to lighten the load for each other by trying to carry our own all alone. We have come together and decided to lean on each other and God has taken that burden away. I didn't think we could be as close as we are right now, but when you are blessed enough to find your soul mate, amazing things happen.

They didn't understand what we were celebrating about this year, but they felt extra special. February 15 will always be a day for celebrating. I can't wait to see what this year brings!
