A Day To Remember...

Today is the 7th year since the birth of our sweet Tanner Riley Altic. We have successfully showed him our love and affection.

With being second in birth order and a week before Christmas we are constantly worried that Tanner may just slip through the cracks. It seems in a family our size our children benefit from their parents both being middle children.

Jared and I both have a strong sense of fairness and equality that stems from being in the middle.

I heard a quote once that a parent said,"Being in the middle is the best. It's just like the icing in the middle of the Oreo."

I hope that Tanner felt that today and everyday. Each little boy is so unique and special. Each of them are absolutely irreplaceable and we are made better by knowing them and parenting them.

Thank you Lord for the blessings we call Brennan, Tanner, Elijah, Graham, and Anneliese. They are truly a gift from You.
