It is hard to believe but today my babies turn 14.  It has been both the longest and shortest 14 years of my life—parts of it have been among the hardest moments of my life, and parts among the most priceless.  I marvel constantly at the delight they are and give thanks that for whatever reason we were blessed with them. 

They started the day proving that they are truly teenagers—by sleeping until almost 10.  Russ is on a high adventure trip and I didn’t want to let them down so I made what we call “dad-hop” for breakfast (because Russ is better than IHOP) and I added cantelope and a german pancake for Rachel.  It was an excellent breakfast, or perhaps I should say brunch since we ate it at 11.   I hope to get a chance to blog more about them soon, but until then I wanted to say Happy Birthday!!


Josh administered “birthday punches,” a “tradition” I’ve not seen before and would be just as happy not to see again.  Poor Jenna locked herself in the bathroom when he came her way.
