celebrating 2 years

happy birthday to one of the most amazing people that I know
video
Music: Laura Story Blessings...one of Addison's favorites

and if you've read Dreams Change (put together for this birthday celebration), you understand why I almost have no words to describe how this day makes me feel. The video does it pretty awesomely instead. (-:

  3. Happy Birthday, Addison! I am so thankful your mommy shares you so graciously. You bring so much joy to so many people! Great job on the walking! I hope to meet you some day when we visit Vermont. (We used to go to your church and we still have family there.)

    I am so thankful God gave you such a wonderful mom and has used you to teach her and by extension thousands of people many beautiful truths.

    Enjoy your very special day, eat cake, and keep living life to the fullest!

  14. I could watch that over and over again. Right when the song started playing and I saw Addison hooked up to all those monitors I just choked up, thinking what a miracle she is. I don't know which picture was my favorite- the one where she's kissing Carter or the one with the chocolate cake, or the sweet shot of her first pigtails- they are all priceless. That video of her laughing at the end was the best- she has SO much personality, and it shines through photos, but I absolutely love the videos because we get to see it in action. You are sooo blessed, Deanna. I know you know that, but from the outside looking in I am just saying, there is no way anybody could look at Addison and not know what a blessing she is. Here's to many more HAPPY birthdays- I hope some day our girls can meet in real life. Happy happy birthday from all of the Rice family...OXOXOXOX

  23. Deanna, I watched this for the first time tonight and my laptop is literally soaked with tears. FIRST of all, Chubbs is such a beautiful little girl. Her little princess self has changed me... I know I don't know you (met you just a few times back when we went to the same childhood church) and I've never met Addison, but please believe me when I say her life has changed me and the way I look at life. Second, that is one of my favorite songs, EVER!!! AHHHH!!! Beautiful song, beautiful Chubbs! Happiest birthdays to you, sweetest, dearest baby girl!
