Sweet 17!

My baby sister, Chelsey, turned 17 on Friday. That is SO hard for me to believe! We are 10 years apart, and she has always seemed a lot younger to me. But, I've finally realized that she isn't a child anymore. She's a lady. Well, maybe that's taking it a bit too far :)

Here are a few looks into her birthday celebration.

Chelsey was advertising the fact that this was Brian's SECOND piece of cake! He cowers in shame :)
This is one of the few pictures that we have where Brian isn't doing something completely silly with his face.
I have NO idea why Ashley has a sword.

Brian does his Popeye impression.
The birthday girl!

When Chelsey poses for pictures, she always stands in a certain way, with her hip popped out. Ashley and I were trying our best to make fun of her, but we just ended up looking ridiculous. We decided that we would leave the pose to her.
Maddox Man, who asked Jesus into his heart tonight. What a sweet blessing from the Lord. May he continue to grow in wisdom, and in stature, and in favor with both God and man (Luke 2:52).

I love your sweet family. I can't believe Chels is 17! WOW! And my heart just bursted with joy when I read Ashley's FB status earlier tonight. What a privilege to welcome sweet Maddox into the family. Precious!!
