What A Great Day

 To celebrate Caresse’s 13th, we started the day with her favorite breakfast made by daddy - pancakes, whipping cream, and strawberries.  For lunch we ate at a yummy mexican restaurant and then enjoyed a Lantern Cave Tour at Cave Of The Winds.  
 We had a wonderful time and then came home for daddy’s special steak!!  
As all parents know, it is so hard to believe how fast our children grow up.  This little darlin’ was born in our bedroom (we were blessed to birth two of our children at home), after a very difficult and life threatening pregnancy.  I have never regretted giving birth to this one, even though it was hard getting her here.  Caresse is our “Beloved Victory”, as her name means and I am so thankful to the LORD for giving her to us. 


  1. Happy Birthday Caresse!! What a beautiful name. My son turned 13 this year. :)

    It looks like a fun day!!

    Love and blessings,

  2. Happy Birthday, Caresse! We hope your day was BLESSED!

  3. Happy birthday, Caresse! 13 is a big birthday! Can I ask, how do you pronounce "Caresse"? Is it pronounced like the English word "caress"? Or maybe Kuh-reece? It has a lovely meaning.

  4. Hi Chenning,
    Thank you for writing....
