WOW! They are eleven years old. It has been an amazing journey. Digging through pictures (just to find a few to post), brought back a ton of memories. In the coming months I intend to scan all of our photos, and create a true journey of the past 11 years of our lives. We have been so blessed. Jeremy and I are really struggling with the thought that we are on a downhill journey, at this point, in raising our family. We only have another 8 years, before they make major decisions in their lives! They are amazing kids! I don't know who has taught them all that they know, it certainly has not been their parents. It truly takes a village to raise a family. So many people have had a major influence in their lives. They are surrounded by so many people who love them! THANK YOU
I pray that the upcoming years will be full of stability, love, and commitment to the things that they have been taught. I would not want to be a teenager, in this day and age. The hurdles are huge! I am grateful that they have each other to lean on, and each other to tattle on.

So far, we have been able to have coed parties. We have attempted to do the "boy thing" and the "girl thing", but every time they decide they want to do the party together. This year we have rented an ice skating rink, and we will be having a big party combined with all family and friends! I will post the details later.

Finally some pictures, of the big event! I am so glad you found them.. I can't believe how tiny they are. What an amazing journey. I hope that they had a wonderful birthday! We love you guys. (Now I still need to see the one of you pregnant with them)

I can't believe how they all look the same. And you look so skinny in the hospital picture? Didn't you gain anything?! HELLO! Happy Birthday kids!

Wow! Has it really been that long! I can still remember seeing them on TV--I was over at Julies in their family room watching the news coverage! Crazy! You are right--so blessed to have such great kids! And I tend to think it does have something to do with the parents! :)

WOW, I don't know how you did three at once. They are great kids, we are so glad that Easton has them!
