Happy 10th Birthday!

 Jon and I just returned from a cruise to the Caribbean yesterday.  
We were so glad to be home in time to celebrate Candace's birthday with the family.

 Ethan has been quite sensitive this year and talking a lot about Candace.  He's been 
emotional about it and missing his sister.  They must have been very 
close in heaven, as he hasn't met her on earth before.

It's hard to believe that Candace would be 10 years old today.  
Time has a way of continuing to tick on whether we're ready for it to or not.

Happy 9th Birthday!

 Today we celebrated Candace's 9th Birthday!  

It was also Sweathearts dance for Shaylin.
She and her date came and joined us in our annual balloon launch.

 I love how good of friends our kids are.

Heading to the "launch pad" at Ann Morrison Park.

We love that the kids have an enjoyable time and happy memories 
each year as we celebrate her birthday.
