I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

Happy birthday Zion

Zion turned three today. My, how the time does fly. 

Here are just a few pictures of him, through the years.

 I can't seem to get them in any particular order, so please, just imagine them in an orderly fashion. 
 Also, just a few notes. Yes, he is wearing what you think he is around his neck. And yes, he did that all by himself. He was about 15 months old then, and Andy was in Iraq. That was a fun picture to E-mail to Daddy.
 In case you can't tell, he loves costumes. It seems to run in the blood! Mom is the costume mistress for her theatre group, and Canaan and Zion have both inherited a healthy love for dressing up and playing pretend.  
One of my favorites is "naked Christmas" from last year. I don't know why he was naked on Christmas morning, but for some reason, it cracks me up, because he was so proud of himself! The last picture is from today. I just think he looks so grown up. 
 I guess I wasn't quite ready for three.

Oh! I meant for my kids to call and say Happy Birthday! We talked about it being Zion's birthday, and then I guess it exited my mind since it had been "said out loud!"
ha ha. I hope you had a great little celebration at home, and we are happy we were able to celebrate when you were here last. Enjoying that moon sand? *smile*
Great job with all the pictures! I know that took a long time.
