Shenira's South Haven Birthday Celebration

On Sunday we headed to South Haven to celebrate Shenira's 12th Birthday. First of all wow 12 she was just 4 when John and I meet and watching her grow up has been a great blessing to be a part of. This is the crew getting ready to enjoy a pizza picnic before we head to the beach. We were there for a little over 3 hours and what you are about to see are just a few of the 153 pictures that I took while we were there! With subjects like these it's hard not to go overboard with my hobby and passion.
This I'm certain is one of my all time favorite pictures of Jordon. It is very rare that I can get him to let me take a picture of him so when I get one like this it is something to cherish. Jordon is a great big brother to Gabe and Gabe loves him so very much.
At the beach Daddy helped Gabe and Shenira dig deep holes so that they could soak there feet into the water. They both love the sand and to dig. Shenira showing off her soaking hole! While we were eating dinner we all took turns telling what each one of us like best about her. (we got this idea from friends that do this for every special occasion and we like it) Her Dad said that one of his favorite things about her was her smile and I would have to agree when she smiles she can melt your heart. After helping the kids dig the holes, John played some football with the boys on the beach. Oh did I ever have so much fun taking these pictures. The boys had such a great time which I'm sure you will be able to tell in the following photos. Our "Payton Manning" look alike!Tony chasing after John. John chasing after Dustin! I love Dustin's face in this one. Tony getting some air on a catch.This picture is SO Dustin. I can hear his cheesy laugh every time I look at this picture. Me and my hubby, thanks to Tony for the great picture. Daddy with his littlest man.

Me with 5 of the best kids EVER! I know that I've already said this but I am blessed! Each one of these kids make such a difference in our lives and I love them all.
Shenira, You are becoming a beautiful young lady and I'm so proud to be your step-mom. Thank you for all of the things that we do together and for the time that you spend with me. I LOVE having a girl to shop with and scrapbook with. You are the best daughter anyone could ask for.
Happy Birthday Sissy We Love You!
