Happy Birthday, Amy

As far as I'm concerned, if they end in a zero or five, they're BIG. So, CONGRATULATIONS, Amy, on a BIG ONE:


Amy's birthday is today but yesterday was when we all were together, at Nicholas' soccer game. Dennis had just flown into Atlanta on Friday.

And yes, even Mark was there again, in the wings of Dennis' hearty laugh.

With every passing week, that BLB (Big Little Boy) seems to understand a bit more about soccer!

He even got to throw in and managed to barely keep both feet on the least once.

He is definitely his mommy's boy!

And since it was his daddy's weekend to have him, we all shared a few minutes of love together, watching as Nicholas gave Mommy his present.

Celebrations like this are good for the soul. Memories to last a long time. We all feel so incredibly fortunate to have you in our life, Miss Amykins. Blessed was the day when you were born all those 35 years ago!

  11. Beautiful, beautiful girl! to the tune of Mr. Holland's Opus' Beautiful Beautiful Boy- Sign Language and all:)

  12. I totally agree that bdays that end in fives or zeros are big milestones! The big 3-5 is when you realize - oh, i can be president if i wanted to!
    Great big bday wishes from California to your sweet and beautiful Amy!!

  13. RK: Awww. Now I want to see that movie again! :)

    Mad: I think Amy could definitely be whatever she wanted to be if she put her mind to it! :) She had a great day. Thanks for your wishes (which are still in good stead since Dennis is here on business till Thursday).

  14. A very great B-day tribute to Amy and great pictures again.

    btw. I have tagged you on my last post from Amsterdam - referring to 3 of yours from the same, charming city.

  15. I love the pictures of Amy and Nicholas! Emma and I were with Lesley on Amy's birthday, and I thought of her lots!

    How great for you to be so close and be able to spend time with her on these special days. That is a blessing!!

  16. Belated Happy Birthday to Amy - all the way from Norway! He and even Denni is such a great soccer supporter :-)

    Good to see how lovely Denni is playing football (yea, I know you call it soccer, but what about the rest of the world? LoL)

    Good to see Denni's mom too - they are so cute together!
