In which Cleveland turns another year older...

...and in which we have one of the best times we've ever had, gathered around the table in the barn, laughing, singing...celebrating him and his life, and thanking the Lord Jesus for him.

Ah, how we love him!

How blessed we are to have him as our brother and son.

We love you, Cleve. So much.
Down the table.To have Wesley and Uncle Frank both telling stories at the same table is one of the most glorious things in the world!! (We were so thrilled the Campanas were up here that weekend!!)
"...and you know, this guy was over there doing this number..."
Crying-waving hilarious!!Mama and Daughter-Kress and Isa, we love you so! Oh, and check out Isa-, she sucks her thumb!! How dainty is that? Well, she's not actually doing it in this picture, LOL, but it is so so cute when she does...)
Carlo was in such suspense over this story. :)
Daddy's all-the-way-laugh -One of the most delightful sounds in the world! It makes me grin just looking at this picture.Joe
Marth and N.-precious sisters!Reading birthday notes and opening some awesome, thoughtful gifts. :)
And I shall end with one of my favorite pictures from the last few weeks.
*merriment and laughing* (More on this later)

Happy Birthday, dearest brother.

Love forever,

Adeline, for all of us

I can almost hear the laughter through that picture, what a treasure!

I love the bog long table with everyone around it, how blessed is your family! What great news for your brother as well!

Isa is so big, and just as darling! I can't believe I found your blog so long ago right before she & Mike were married and what a cute little family they have now!

Joe is so cute! I tried to leave Rachel a comment on her blog, but blogger won't let me. Do tell her I said I am so happy for her and will leave a comment once blogger straightens out!
