November was a month full of birthday fun and lots holiday prep and celebration. Here’s a not-so-brief pictorial summary.
Our sweet Cami Shea turned 5. A whole hand. She celebrated with an art celebration for friends and a pizza party for family. Oh, I am so enjoying watching this girl grow. She’s changing in ways that keep us proud, laughing, and sometimes scratching our heads. A sporty girl with a love for sparkle, skinny jeans, and writing, she also bears a flare for the dramatic. I’m calling it now – she is my child born to mother. Camden nurtures:nurtures:nurtures to the point of near annoyance. But it’s her heart – she loves to love (amongst other things…) and we are oh-so-grateful for another year with Camden Shea!
And then there’s Kaiah True. She turned 3 and has the bossy/stubborn thing down to a science. Jury is still out on whether this is an age-related attribute or a forever Kaiah characteristic. Either way, we’re learning to love (i.e. tolerate) it. It’s true – my baby has graduated on from toddler to little kid, but in my heart (& our house!), she’s my baaaaaby. Constantly trying to keep up, our Kai Pie, thinks her older Starr siblings are the coolest. And that feeling is mutual. KT is catered to and well-loved by all. God has blessed us beyond measure with this curly-haired cutie.
November was also a month full of icky-sickies, but we’re hoping it is out of our systems so we don’t have to celebrate Christmas again like we did last year.
Other than the big birthdays, we’ve had lots of time with family, snowy days, relaxing evenings, and plenty of memories in the making.
