The Birthday Party

The Birthday Girl

We had to help her...she saw the flame and tried to grab it!
The fam
She did not like the hat!
She definitely liked the wrapping paper!
Russ and his little girl! Russell's Aunt Gail bought GA this funny sign!

She likes bows just not on her head!!
(Thanks Berklie for letting us borrow your cute tu-tu! GA had so much fun wearing it!) Check out GA's one year pictures on Ashley's blog under "Girly"

We had so much fun and GA had the best first birthday we could have ever asked for! Russ, Grace Ann and I were surrounded by friends and family to celebrate the day that changed our lives forever! A huge thanks for all the wonderful and thoughtful gifts to Grace Ann and all the help preparing for the party from our parents!
GA and her sweet cousin, Jack! They had a blast playing together!

Happy 1st birthday to our sweet girl!

A year ago today our lives changed more than we could have ever imagined! We are so blessed that God gave you to us and that we get to be your parents. Watching you grow from a tiny baby into a big girl has been such a gift and I have loved every minute of it! I look forward to watching you grow more and more each year. We love you so much sweet girl!

I will post pictures of this sweet girl's birthday party soon. We had a great weekend and just enjoyed reflecting over the past year! Thank you to all our friends and family who helped Russ and I give GA the best start to life. It truly takes a village to get a little person going on the right track. She is so lucky to have all you guys in her life giving her your love and support!

6th Anniversary at La Cantera

This past weekend Russ and I got to meet up with our awesome friends from our Midland days in San Antonio at the La Cantera resort! It was so nice to have an adults only weekend! Grace Ann got to hang out with my parents...thank you Mom and Rick for coming all the way to CC! We enjoyed laying out by the pool, sipping our pina coladas and eating really good food! I would say that our only negative to the weekend was that poor Russ had to suffer through his never-ending eye infection! He has had this darn thing since mid-July! But despite him wearing sunglasses in every picture and everywhere we went, we had a fantastic time! I hope we can all do it again next summer!

Oh, the most important part of the weekend was the celebration of our anniversaries! Russ and I celebrated 6 years "strong" on August 9th and Todd and Janai celebrated 6 years "strong" on August 2nd! Yea for us!!! So here is a little picture montage of our weekend complete with commentary!

"I wear my sunglasses at night...." (Sorry babe but I couldn't resist!)
Todd and Janai are toasting to their awesome friends, The Sebrings! Thanks guys!

Todd and Russ got to go to a Cowboys practice at the Alamodome while Janai and I went shopping! Russ had a great time! Thanks Todd!
This is my fav of Todd and Janai! They love having a great time!
Even after 6 years we are STILL cheeseballs!
(Sorry Grace Ann your parents are crazy!)

Apparently, we didn't get the memo that Daffy Duck was joining us for breakfast!
Boom-breakfast complete!
Fabulous FOUR!

Keep praying for precious Sophie!

Here is a picture of little Sophie! Today she had a really hard surgery to take out the stint they had put in when they did surgery in early July. She is such a fighter, because the doctors have told Natalie and Marvin twice that she wasn't going to make it and look how awesome our Lord is! She is still going strong! Please continue to be with this family, last night was so difficult due to the pain that Sophie was in and the upcoming surgery of today. God is a miracle worker and HE can heal this precious baby! Thank you for your prayers and support! Please paste and copy the prayer button so we can pass on the power of prayer for this family!
