A double digits birthday


 Our second oldest broke into double digits a couple weeks ago!  Mario is our sweet, compassionate, kind, tender hearted, artsy, creative, goofey, handsome kid.  Last year, I shared pictures from when he was born 'til he turned 9 years old.  This year, I wanted to share pictures of him from this past year....

Mario lovingly and willingly dressed as a clown for his sister's circus birthday party last year.

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