Abby's 1st Birthday

Believe it or not, Abby is now 1 year old!

I've said this before, but its amazing how quickly she has grown up.

This weekend we had a huge party to celebrate Abby's life, to thank God for blessing us with the gift of raising her, and to give the party guests an opportunity to write down blessings for Abby's next year.

I put together some videos to capture Abby's first year with us. You can access these videos from Google Video...
For more pictures go to my Abby's 1st Birthday Picasa Web Album.


  1. Well, I just cried thanks to you and your sweet slide shows.

    Happy Birthday to Abby!

    The birthday party looked so cool! I loved the big pictures on the walls. You and Andrea are so creative. Abby is so blessed to have parents like you guys. You are great examples if we ever go that direction. =)

    Take care and enjoy your beautiful little girl.

    love & blessings to you,
    Andrea Livingston

    The videos were beautiful. They were tearjerkers. I can't believe how fast our children grow up. I'm glad we got to share Abby's first few months with you. We miss y'all.

  4. Abby,
    Happy Belated Birthday! What a blessing you are to your parents. We pray that you grow to be an amazing woman of God, that you grown to love His word and His promises. And that you honor Him with your life the way that your parents have honored Him with theirs'. God bless you little one!
