Jubilee’s Tenth Birthday {and Thanksgiving Babies}

posted in: Large Family | 7

My sweet Jubilee was born ten years ago exactly one week before Thanksgiving (though her birthday was on a Tuesday this year). She was our seventh child, born in our seventh year of marriage at exactly  seven pm weighing in at exactly seven pounds! She was born with a head full of dark hair and one dimple. Such a sweet blessing to our family.


And she was born seven weeks after Mordecai joined our family through adoption.

  1. I love the photos–and Apollo has so much personality! makes me think of the song:
    he’s got personality
    Walk, personality
    Talk, Personality
    Smile, Personality
    Charm, personality
    Love, personality . . . .

    He’s a fighter. Happy Thanksgiving!!

  2. Happy Birthday!! I love the header photo!!!

  3. I have been reading your blog for years and years. I am not a big commenter. But I had to comment today to say that I LOVE your header. It’s absolutely perfect.

  5. […] due to me arriving home from Houston just five days before her birthday. I did manage to pull off a party (with new friends from school even!) and gifts, but no ear-piercing. We took advantage of her break […]
