Happy 11th Birthday to Our Oldest Girl!! 

Happy Birthday Jaden!! It’s hard to believe that 11 years have already passed. Just yesterday we were looking at your baby pictures and talking about what a beautiful baby you were. That hasn’t changed. You are still beautiful not only on the outside but more importantly on the inside. 

Really! It’s true. I get so many compliments about your sweet spirit and servant’s heart. You truly are one of a kind. The way you selflessly take care of your younger siblings melts my heart. You rarely get frustrated. It’s not always easy having 4 little ones below you. But, you handle it like a champ. Your love for them shines through every day.  

Jayce loves the nightly snuggle time with books. What a blessing to see you read to him not because you have to but because you want to! You two really are inseparable. 

You are a fantastic gymnastics teacher to Jayla and James. It brightens my day hearing Jayla squeal with delight each time you help her master a new skill. And, James is always seeking your approval. They both look up to you!

And, you always know how to make AJ belly laugh. Seeing you laugh right along with him makes your mama smile. It amazes me that you always choose to sit in the seat between him and Jayce in the van. Out of all 12 seats, you have claimed that one! They are so fortunate to have a second Mommy!!

Thanks for loving all of us so well. Even your older brother proudly calls you his sister. Isn’t it great to be able to spend so much time with your best friend? 

We all love you more than you could imagine. Thank you so much for all the help around here! Even today, on your birthday, you have went the extra mile to make sure your siblings are happy. You have willingly shared your candy and snacks, filled up sippy cups, changed diapers, and played Go-Fish with your little sister. Why?  Because you always put others before yourself. That’s what makes you so special. I appreciate you so much! Love you forever sweet girl!

Love Always, 


P.S. – I am glad we get to spend time together on the nights all the little kids push me out of my bed! Your door is always open for your mommy. 


Proverbs 31:29-30 – Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.  Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
