Happy Birthday Sweet Laney Rae!

I cannot believe my baby- my punkin- is TWO today!

Laney Rae,

You are beyond precious. We cannot help but look at you and laugh overcome with joy.

Joy is set forth in those beautiful eyes.

Excitement for life is your song.

The people who know and love you describe you as "FUN"!

You show us daily what is means to live out life excited about what each day holds.

When you are outside wondering, you are content. Walls and rooms are not your friend.

You are the family comedian. Laughter is a language that you love deeply.

We are so thankful for you. I pray blessings over your little life. May you never lose your spark for life. I pray it grows into a passion and excitement for Our Savior who loves you so much.

I'm remembering today when you were a tiny new life in our family. And now you bring so much life and laughter to our home.

We love you precious girl!
Mommy, Daddy, Kaylyn, and Ruthie

These are great shots... I'm really digging the whole "old chair in an unnatural location" thing. I recently picked myself up an old chair (although not as cool as that one) for just that purpose.

Shabby Mama said... sweet and you described her so well (of course you ARE her mother);;;;

love the petticoats and chair thing! you are so talented

Happy Birthday, Laney Rae! The pictures capture her beautiful spirit so wonderfully! (I didn't realize her and Johnathan's b-days were so close...he turns one on Wednesday!)

Oh my goodness! I'm so far behind. I'm still wanting to comment on your last two posts.

Laney Rae is so cute! As always your pics are beautiful. Love the tutus! "I can't believe how fast they grow," says the girl who will have an 8-year-old in a few weeks.

Still waiting on some new belly pics from you. I need to post some too.

Lyns save that for when she is 13, she'll love it.

SUCH cute pictures!! Love them! It's always so fun to go back and look at your older kids when they were itty bitty...especially when you can compare them to current babies (at least that's what I do!)

Quick question: I am in desperate need of a blog facelift and I was wondering how you got yours to all be centered and look so pretty. And how did you do the picture and change the font on your header? I'm SO frustrated with mine! (Notice, somehow I found the same background as yours). Any advice would be so appreciated!! Thanks!

Heather said...

:) Kindly disregard my previous request for help...I figured it out...I needed to switch my template! :)

I've been meaning to tell you for days now...I LOVE those first few pics!!!! Amazing. (Well of course, I like all the pictures, but the petticoats and chair...awesome!
