Happy 4th Birthday Sammy!


Sammy, you’re four! We love your crazy faced antics, your big hugs, your loud enthusiasm and your adorable conversations.


we made this poster for preschool to celebrate your birthday

You love your brothers fiercly. You love snuggles with mom and mornings with dad. You love pajamas and shopping and cereal and anything with sugar in it. You REALLY love the tv show PJ Masks and your most favorite character is Gekko. We are required to tell you a PJ Masks bedtime story every night and most nights you want to be Gekko in the story.

You love games (especially Uno) riding your strider bike, being outside for any reason, having daddy push you on the swings and playing “tickle monster” with mommy.

You are hilarious, compassionate, and you do everything big! You find such joy in the little things and often have a thankful attitude… which makes you fun to spoil. Keep your sense of wonder even as you grow. We sure love you, Sammy Nash!

Happy 7th Birthday Joshua!

Joshua, you’re seven! I think that means you’re not a little kid anymore and have officially moved to big kid status. You are growing in responsibility and abilities.


Could you be more adorable? Nope, didn’t think so.

You’re an adventurer and a natural traveler. I have loved watching you adjust to our time in Mexico and the way you approach people and easily form friendships. You put yourself out there in trying to communicate in Spanish and in interacting with the people we are reaching out to. I’m proud of you.

Not every seven year old can say they’ve gotten pesos from the tooth fairy!

You love soccer and swimming and legos and Pokemon and building things and the ocean. And bacon. You really really love bacon. Your love language is quality time and you especially like to go on “dates” with just you and mom or dad. We like it too. I love to hear you talk about the things you are interested in- whether it’s all about a certain Pokemon or which Ninjago character is your favorite or what creation you’ve dreamed up in your mind to build out of legos.


the Pikachu piƱata you picked out for your birthday

You’re about to be a first grader! You’re learning to read and you’re getting really good at math. You are also good with logic and words. I’m pretty sure you could be a lawyer. You can convince your brother to do almost anything and you are pretty good at convincing mom and dad too ;)

We sure love you, buddy. We love watching you grow and learn and we’re excited to keep traveling and adventuring with you! Happy birthday!
