Birthdays are a big, awesome deal in this big, awesome family. 🙂


This week, “M” turned 7. Birthdays are a much-anticipated event. The birthday kid gets to pick something and we all go and do it together. It’s so much fun. Everyone had a wonderful day celebrating everything we love about her. It was a Moana themed day, which fits her perfectly. She is brave and adventurous and always inspires me to see things differently.

There is nothing that gives me more joy than to see the children in our family rally around each other and make every effort to help each other be happy. This is one of the greatest joys of big families. So grateful for ours!
