Happy 5th Birthday Dallas!

Today, Dallas is 5 years old! At 2:09pm 7.31.2004, God blessed us with our son. What can his Daddy and I say about him except how much we love him and how proud of him we are. He's truely a joy, and we are both so thankful that God gave him to us.
We both continue to pray God's greatest blessing on his life and that God will continually draw Dallas' heart to Himself.

Every year, I've taken a picture of him on his b-day. I took this one of him this morning.

This just melts my heart!

These 2 little pictures have just melted my heart! Dallas drew the one on the top just a couple of weeks a go and just recently drew the one on the bottom. If you can't tell, in the orange picture, Adam is on the left with the very long legs (hehe) and then it's Dallas and me holding hands). As a mom, I just cherish every little thing about him and our relationship. We've always been very close, and I just can't help but smile everytime I see these 2 little pictures. The orange one is currently on our fridge, and the other is papercliped on my calender.

Dallas 5 Year Birthday Party

We celebrated Dallas' 5th birthday on Sat. Dallas had a great time, and we enjoyed everybody being here with us! Here are a few snapshots from the exciting day!

Wasn't Dallas' cake amazing! I found a lady locally here in Tyler that made it for him! And it tasted DELICIOUS!

Probably the funniest moment of the party, when I realized I forgot to put candy in the pinada! Ha!! I thought it came with candy! So sorry, Dallas!

Another fun moment was biting into spidey's head!

Last Monday Dallas had his 5-year-old birthday pictures taken. His actual birthday is not until 7.31, but wanted to get them done a bit early so we could have pictures to give out to family and friends. We were referred to a local photographer here in Tyler, Teresa Rieder, and she was amazing! She had the idea to go to the Children's Park and we were so pleased how great all of Dallas' pictures turned out. Can't wait to get the prints back. It was SO hot that morning! By the end of the shoot Dallas was pretty worn out, but what I love about D is that he is so full of love and life. Thanks for capturing this in the photos, Teresa! Here are a few of my favorites...
