My blue-eyed September girls both have birthdays this weekend so I’ll be trying to push back a tidal wave of tears as I hold these two extra tight. This photo was taken on their birthday three years ago and it feels like time is so unfair, stealing their days and their years from me right before my eyes.
Twelve and twenty.
What a privilege to be here.
What a privilege to do this.

Happy birthday to your blue-eyed babies! Wait until the grandchildren start growing up before your eyes…

Happy Birthday to your beautiful girls! I mourn birthday’s as well, I soooo know what you mean! 🙂
OH I know it just goes by way to fast:( It is so not fair.
Your blue-eyed girls are beautiful, and so is your brown-eyed one! I can’t believe how much Emme has changed just in the last year or two. When I saw this picture, I immediately had the “Awwww” reaction. She looks so little and young (and I know she was). Happy Birthday to both of your blue-eyed girls.

A privilege indeed. May they have the happiest of days. And may their mommy hold back the tears. With each new year so many new and exciting things come along. I use to mourn the passage of time. Now I have those precious grandchildren and I know that though my life has changed, it just keeps getting sweeter. Every day is sweeter than the day before. 🙂
Yes what a privilege! Wipe those tears though…I read somewhere that those of us who home school gain an extra 18 years worth of time being with our children. Isn’t that amazing! I have a 12 year old who I started homeschooling in 2nd grade!
Happy Birthday. 🙂
Happy Birthday – you and your oldest look like sisters – skinny mama. xoxoxo

Happy birthday to your blue-eyed beauties. They grow too fast. Time is truly unfair. It seems to come and go so quickly-fading into memories-leaving us wondering, where did it go.
I hope you have an awesome weekend celebrating!!

My youngest boy turned 8 on Monday, big bro turns 10 in a few days. (and my girl turned 13 this Summer – ah!) I’m right there with you – remembering, praying and celebrating all of it. Happy Birthday & Blessings to your birthday girls!
Happy birthday, happy memories and gorgeous video/song! Enjoy each day. This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad!

Five years ago??? It seems like just yesterday. Oh my, we’ve been blogging a long time. I know how you feel, Jaxon turns fourteen this month and my sweet mom turns seventy (clenching heart). I’ve always loved that photo btw. My books here!! It’s super rainy today and I couldn’t be happier…I’m going to read the day away. Jaxon’s offered help if I need it…he of course has read it alreayd. Ha!
My little blue eyed one year old loved listening to this song today. She has great music appreciation. She was moving her head back and forth with the music. Happy Birthday to your beautiful blue eyed girls.

Edie, Happy Birthday to your precious girls. I just celebrated my 53rd birthday and my youngest will celebrate her 20th on the 19th. Time passes so quickly, but what a blessing it is 🙂
Happy Birthday to your girlies. They are growing up too fast. Mine, too. 🙁 It’s so fun to watch them grow and so hard all at the same time.

Oh my goodness, 2 of my 4 boys also have September birthdays!! One will be 22 on the 22nd & the other turned 12 on the 9th. Obviously, we both LOVE Christmas…wink wink 😉
Happy Birthday to your blue eyes beauties!!
