8 Years of Rip-Roaring Good Times


You are sweet joy to us, Hayden.



Volume knob turned to "loud"




Break dancing to the rhythm of a drummer most of us cannot hear or understand.

God has woven into your life the gifts of music, dance, art, compassion, a love for the underdog, a heart that grieves over injustice. And then there's the "all boy" side of you...the double back flip on the trampoline, catch every bug, lizard, tadpole, minnow, snake and frog side of you.

We love you sweet boy.

Your adventurous spirit blesses this home and keeps us on our toes.

We pray God grows each of the gifts He has given you this year.

Keep on dancing son...

Teach this world how to dance to the tune of heaven...the tune of an abundant life...rich...satisfying...compelling...a life worth living and celebrating.

Leave the volume turned on high, Hayden.

We love you brave boy. Our sweet, funny, lover of life, wild, crazy boy.

We thank God for 8 years of adventure.

Happy Birthday Hayden!
You are definitely one of the wildest kiddos we've ever met, but still so sweet.

We hope your day is a blessed one!
