We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

Happy 3rd Birthday Kai!

 Today you are three years old Kai Bear! I still remember that day that you made your appearance....
 ....when your Mommy knew that she was really in labour we said that you must be a boy since both of your boy cousins also had birthdays on the 24th of the month.
You were proof to our family that weeping might last for the night but joy comes in the morning. We were missing your big sisters, Avery and Sophie, but now that you were here we were able to smile again.
 And smile you did! You were such a fat, smiley little baby.
Each expression seemed cuter than the last, and you were such a ham! Always posing for the camera when I brought it out.
We had to take a picture of you in the 'family Michigan cap' that both of your cousins Aidan and Jaxon had worn before you on pictures at White Rock beach.
 Kai you have always had the ability to make me smile....
 ....but then who wouldn't smile at this face? You always looked like you knew something we didn't!
We loved making the trip up north to come and visit you, whether in the summer when it was warm or through the snow in winter.
 It was worth it to see your smiley face when you saw us!
You weren't too sure at first, in fact you wanted us to take her back when we first brought her home, but now you love your little sister and she looks up to you!
 You are a daredevil....but one who counts the cost first.
 Life is one great adventure......and you enjoy each day.

So enjoy today Kai! Have a wonderful birthday....I wish we didn't live so far away so we could come and share your birthday cake with you! Love you lots little man!
