Rowen 7th Birthday

Our youngest is seven!  I love how excited Rowen gets for his birthday.  When I woke him up w/ good morning kisses and hugs, he immediately jumped out of bed and said, “Yep!  I grew!”.. He’s always making us laugh, and smile.  His favorite things right now, are Rocker BMX trick bikes, Tech Deck skateboards, w/ ramp sets, Beanie Boos, and Squishies, and he’s still asking for a dirt bike.  I think this is year three.. haha

We love you so much, Rowen Zane!  You have THE sweetest heart, are always telling us “I love you”, giving us compliments, and doing kind things for everyone.  I love that even at seven years old, you still hold your mama’s hand and snuggle while watching a movie.  I pray that you’ll always have such kindness, love, and laughter to share w/ everyone.  Happy 7th birthday, my love!

Ashlyn was happily helping Rowen read his birthday cards, even though she looks so somber here 😉

We teased Uncle Brodie for liking the Fingerling monkey toy so much.

Make a wish, little man!

He was SO excited to do some pictures w/ his new bike from Christmas. 

These kids had so much fun at a new trampoline park.

Hair Donation Time Again!…

This girl.. She absolutely has a heart of gold.  While she sure can be sassy as all get out at times 😉 she has such a kind and giving heart.

Several weeks ago, Ashlyn started to talk about donating her hair again.  This is her second time donating, the first was 2 years ago at this same time of year.  So, so proud of her.  Sure does make this mama’s heart swell.

We asked her what her “why” was last time… and asked her again;

“I’m inspired by my friend Daelin, because she has a brain tumor.  I thought maybe she can get my hair, so I wanted to donate it.  I like to donate my hair because it helps people, and God knows it’s good for other people.”  -Ashlyn, 8 years old

Rowen’s 6th Birthday Party

The days leading up to Rowen’s party & birthday had him SUPER excited… Each day he would ask, “how many days until, mom?!?”

Still a ninja, this boy!  It’s funny to see that his love of things typically go for the long haul.  He still loves being a ninja, Hotwheels tracks & cars, remote control cars, and Beanie Boos.

Happy 6th birthday, my handsome little man.  We love you TONS!
