Birthday party, football, and extra pictures

Yesterday we went to a birthday party for the Green twins. It is hard to believe they are a year old already! Here are some pictures from the party.

Gabbie and Jack - these two are so cute together. Anytime Jack was out of Gabbie's sight she asked where Jack was!

Another cute one of Gabbie and Jack

Daddy and Gabbie started playing football outside while the kids were playing kid games!

Daddy going back to the high school days hiking a ball but this time to his baby girl.

Is she going to catch it?

Of course:) Okay not really but she got it and started running like a pro.

Here she is again running for the ball.

And bringing it back

Here are the birthday boys enjoying their cake!

Gabbie at the park a couple of weeks ago.

Gabbie on her Daddy's shoulders as happy as can be!

We took Gabbie to Dis-ney on Ice two days after her birthday. I think she was kind of shocked through the whole thing. We had 2nd row seats that were incredible! She enjoyed it a lot and still talks about it and asks to go back!

3 years ago tonight

We received a call that would change our lives forever. We had finally been matched with this baby girl. We were fortunate to have her home less than 5 months later!

This was her on her 1 year referral anniversary. She was so cute and chunky!

This was her last year on her 2 year referral anniversary. She had changed so much since the year before.

This is Gabbie today. It is hard to believe it has been 3 years since our lives were changed forever and we finally saw our daughter's face. I am tearing up thinking about it. Gabbie's birthday is very important, but to me this is her true "birthday" to us. As cheesy as it sounds this is the day she was born in our hearts forever.
