Eight is great!!

Our sweet Melody is celebrating her 8th birthday tomorrow.  We've had a very busy weekend - her friend birthday party last night and her family birthday party tomorrow.  She is also sharing her family birthday party with her biggest brother, Fone, since his birthday is five days after hers, and also my sister who gave away her birthday to Melody since they share birthdays!  (thanks, Carie!!)

I will post pictures of Melody's Brave-themed party from last night as soon as I can.  But, more importantly, a reminder of how precious she grew since birth and a whole lot of pictures of her from this past year....

We love you so much, Melody!!!!!!!!

Loving God, you created all the people of the world and you know each of us by name. We thank you for Melody, who today celebrates her birthday. Bless her with your love and friendship that she may grow in wisdom, knowledge, and grace. May she love her family always and be faithful to her friends.
