Happy Birthday My Beautiful AshleyJoleen!!

Today is my sweet girls 5th Birthday!! It's hard to believe it was 5 years ago. Where does the time go!!?? We had a trying year with her and her health and just feel so blessed and fortunate that she is so much better and healthy and happy. She was born on a very bitter cold day and I day that was clouded with grief also. A young woman in my hometown community was killed in a car accident on her way to work as an EMT here in Sterling, she has an identical twin sister, they were both very popular girls, they were excellent basketball players, and she had her whole life ahead of her, Her name was Andi, When I heard the news I didn't want to have Ash on such a sad day, but as someone from Stoneham said when they heard I had Ash, "What a wonderful and happy thing to happen on such a sad day." I guess it just goes to prove that life does go on and that is God's way of letting us know than even in sadness there is hope. I just tell everyone That Ashley has the best Angel ever!!

This picture is from June of 06. Brandon was the ring bearer at his Kindergarten teachers wedding. They both looked so nice and made me very proud that day!!
They are such good friend!! I love them so much!!

She informed me this morning that she must still be four because she just doesn't feel five yet!! Oh just wait!! lol

This was her 4th birthday!! Yes it is January and she is wearing a sun top!! She wanted to wear that for her birthday, a hand me down from cousin Paige!! She was so happy to be wearing something that Paige had!!

This picture was just last month. She was eating her fruitie pebbles watching "her shows'. She is such a blessing to my husband, Brandon & I. She really does make us a complete family and we cherish each day with both of our kids. I sure don't know what I would do without either one of them.
