Happy 5th B-day, Kiefer!

Today is Kiefer’s 5th birthday!  We are so blessed to have “Kowboy Kiefer” in our family.  He’s all-boy, full of mischief and adventure, but also full of love and smiles.  He brings so much laughter and joy to our family. 


Yesterday we had a party at our ranch to celebrate Kiefer’s 5th birthday, Parker’s 17th birthday, and Chrissie’s 3rd Heaven Day.


Chrissie’s special friend, Rowan, came to the house to deliver special birthday cakes, as well as pretty pink flowers, a beautiful poem Rowan wrote, a “special friend” balloon, and a plaque he made out of wood.  Rowan is a super special young man with a rare genetic disorder.  He occupied Chrissie’s room in PICU of Methodist Children’s just prior to Chrissie taking over that room.  Rowan and his family bless us immeasurably.  (Rowan’s big sis, Zoe, designed the Boss Your Heart logo!)

Friends and family gathered in celebration of these three special events.


The sounds of joyful noises abounded from the pool…

So grateful for the gift of these children He has blessed us with, as well as for the special friends and family who help us to celebrate all He has done and continues to do.  Our hearts are filled with joy.
