A surprise for Tess!

These are just a few pictures from 2 Sundays ago when two older couples in our church body heard about Tess' 1 year anniversary with us! They took us out to eat and then surprised us with a little cake for Ms. Tess.

The second & third picture is Tess telling us how old she is. (although we were not celebrating her birthday the number 1 fit this occasion!)

It was such a sweet gesture and so heartfelt and we are so thankful for these dear sweet brothers & sisters in Christ who have treated Brent and I like their own children and love on Tess like she's their own grandchild!

  5. Marian,

    She is so beautiful! Just makes me want to kiss on those sweet cheeks. :) Miss you guys.

  6. Just all around sweetness! Her grin can light up a room. Tell Tess her cousins Sam and Jack miss her, and give her a big kiss.

  7. It's wonderful that you have such caring and thoughtful people in your church!
