I LOVE Sierra’s smile. Knowing that your friends love your kiddos nearly as much as you do. It’s a beautiful thing!

THIS IS US! Find your people. Love them hard.

We are not in a casual friendship with these people. We are in a committed friendship with these people!!

When it’s easy. When it’s hard. When it’s fun. When it’s mundane.

Sierra – we LOVE you SO MUCH!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Are any of you DOCTOR WHO fans!?

The crack in this AMAZING cake resembles the crack in time – which seems to follow us around! We see it quite often!

ALSO – BECCA – I want this cake for ALL the birthdays from here on out!! IT WAS SO GOOD!!

I don’t eat chocolate – so I can’t speak for this brownie – but it LOOKS DELICIOUS!!

Those pictures – they’re my favorite!!

These shots describe what we do as friends. We love.

It’s a great thing for our kiddos to have 5 moms! I’m not sure that the kids ALWAYS love that though!!

That’s her oldest. She is NOT happy that he’s taller than her already!

I’ve got ONE more post to show you!!

If you follow me on FACEBOOK – you should know that we have a pretty awesome inner circle of people in our lives.

Sometimes I forget that Sierra & Jose are quite a bit younger than us!

In early November – Jose turned 30!! Sierra will turn 30 a couple of months after I turn 40!

ANYWAY – we gathered at their house with their people to celebrate!!

The night before the party – we got together for what was supposed to be friend-family photos around the fire pit – BUT – it was COLD & windy – so we just hung out in the kitchen eating dinner instead!

Fitzy is three weeks older than that guy in the red and about 2 years younger than the guy in the black! He considers Aaron his best friend!

Enoch & Aiden on the trampoline Friday night!!

I LOVE that our guys have each other to grow up with!!

OH MY HEART!!! THAT SWEET GIRL!!

It’s not a birthday party without some guns – right!?

That was a test shot – but LOOK AT MY BEAUTIFUL FRIEND!!

I’m told it’s a rare thing to find people like this. It might be. I do know this – at the risk of sounding ridiculous – we are blessed!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!

Jose’s little sister came to celebrate with everyone!!

GORGEOUS!!

THIS!! These people – this moment. We’ve all got stories & some of them are unbelievable. I have one word to explain why all these people are here in this picture – together.

GRACE. Meeting Jesus completely transformed Cody’s life. It’s not my story to tell – but I do think he’ll be sharing it sooner rather than later – because it’s amazing.

Watching him live his life & living this life with them – it makes me cry!

THANKS!!

Before we called it a night – we are those early bedtime friends – I had to grab a few silhouette shots from their back porch – BECAUSE – look at that!!!

PERFECTION!!!

Jose – HAPPY BIRTHDAY – here’s hoping this is the BEST YEAR YET!! WE LOVE YOU!!!
