70: so many | Haley, you have grown out of your little girl phase and are such a big, independent kid now! You are our little sweetheart and helper, always so anxious to help us around the house or with Daddy's projects. You are the best big sister a baby can ask for, always wanting to hold Paige, dress her, and make her smile. We've loved watching you play soccer, baseball, gymnastics, and dance. You have amazed us with your ability to spell and you constantly surprise us with the things you know, aka the Presidents! We can't wait for you to read your first book, because you are already so close! You are learning so quickly and your memory is unbelievable! Your favorite stories are Arthur, Clifford, Fancy Nancy, and Princesses. We can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for you! We love you Peanut! | Tyler, we have loved watching you grow into such an exceptional young man. Watching you play soccer, baseball, gymnastics, and TaeKwonDo has been so much fun! You are a great athlete and a wonderful teammate that cares about everyone. You are so intelligent and we have enjoyed listening to you read and being a part of your education. We are so proud of you for joining a book club, working hard in school, and looking for new things to learn. You are such an amazing brother to your two sisters and they are lucky to have such a cool big brother! We love you Ty!
71: LIVE WELL LAUGH OFTEN LOVE MUCH | Paige, you are our little angel. We are so thankful to have a baby in the house and couldn't have asked for a more adorable, sweet, cuddly, and beautiful baby girl. You are so loved and we can't wait to see what kind of person you are going to become. 2011 will hold many firsts for you and we will all be there to share them with you. For now, we will take the snuggles, the cute grunts, the adorable stretches, and even the stinky diapers. We all love you so much, our little pumpkin!
