He's ONE!











I can't believe that my baby boy is already one. The year has flown by. I was told it would, but it still amazes me how much he's changed in just one year. He came out unable to do anything for himself and now he wants to do it all by himself. We are so blessed to have an incredibly happy, sweet baby. He laughs all the time and most of the time Caleb and I have no idea why. God has used Elijah to draw us closer to Him and each other. He's taught us patience, sacrificial love, and given us a tiny, tiny, glimpse into what it would be like to sacrifice you're only son for a sinful world. I really can't imagine the love God has for us in giving us his son, especially when I see how much I love Elijah and want to protect him. God gave his son so that we, sinful unlovable people, might live. It's amazing.

We celebrated Elijah's birthday on Saturday in Bakersfield. We went up for the weekend to have our "Bussell" Christmas and Elijah's birthday. It was a great weekend. Caleb's mom did an incredible job of making our weekend special. She puts so much effort into the holiday's and we really appreciate it. Thanks mom! Here are some pictures Crystal took of our weekend together. The First pictures are us opening our presents and taking our "famous" picture on the bed in our Christmas P.j's. Since, Caleb's sister, Bekah and her family moved to Kenya, we Skyped them so they could be in the picture too. Then the other pictures are of Elijah's party. He had a John Deere cake, which he loved and lots of presents. He's spoiled!
