It's just minutes away from midnight and here I sit thinking about being the mom of 6 year olds.  It's a little tough to swallow and crazy to think of how fast the time has flown but it is something we are going to celebrate all day long!
Avery is six going on sixteen.  Just tonight she requested to play dress up out of my closet.  She wishes there were strapless dresses in her size, loves big earrings and thinks heels are the best thing ever.  Then there is the athletic side of her.  Girl can tumble with the best of them and doesn't mind breaking a sweat to have a little fun.  Tonight, she, Caleb and I went for a short walk after dinner and she kept insisting we make our turn around point farther and farther away.  She's usually up for any challenge.  Reading came easy to her this year and she doesn't mind sticking her nose in a book to read through a few chapters.  Can't wait to see what is in store for her this year!
Austin has a heart of gold.  He knows right from wrong and doesn't push buttons to see how much wrong he can get away with.  Fishing and hunting with his daddy are at the top on his priority list and playing baseball isn't far behind.  He's our artist, can draw scenes and details the people in them.  Sleep isn't too important to him as he is usually the first to wake in the morning and always the last to go to bed.  I know this is going to be a great year for him!
Well, I've made it past midnight so I will be the first to say "Happy Birthday Austin & Avery!!!  We love you more than you will ever know!!"
