Happy Birthday E!!

Sixteen years ago, God blessed our family with a beautiful baby girl...after MANY hours of relentless labor. {insert gratuitous mommy guilt here} She has turned out to be a pretty great kid in spite of our mistakes and "experiments" on her. We've always said she's our parenting guinea pig because first children are burdened with teaching their parents how to parent!

She's a godly, bright, caring, fun person to know and she has blessed our lives in countless ways. She's a terrific big sister to her three siblings and a huge help to me--she already knows much more about caring for children, cooking, and cleaning than *I* did when I got married! We love her bunches & can't wait to see how God is going to use her life for His glory!

Later Days!

K, thank you and A for opening your home for a "grandparent invasion". It has been a wonderful visit to celebrate E's 16th. birthday. E, I am so proud of the beautiful Godly young lady you are. Wishing you many more years serving God with your family, in your church, and helping others (as you will be tomorrow). Much love and prayers, Mimi.
