Birthdays for Two

April is quite an eventful time for the families of OTH, or at least has become so over the last two years! This April, the seventeenth we welcomed a pretty little miss into the Hill family. Sweet Charlotte Macyn arrived in the wee hours of the morning healthy and so precious (8lbs 5oz & 19in)! We are thanking the Lord for this amazing gift of life. What a sweet blessing for this new family of four. I was able to nab a quick photo while visiting at the hospital with my iPhone, hopefully more to come!

Our other birthday buddy this month belongs with us Jones’, Mister Eli Gray. He has been such a joy, blessing, and pleasure to have apart of our family. He’s been so fun to watch grow and learn and become his own little person.  We love him to pieces and are so thankful to have had two wonderful years with him and can’t wait to see what God has in store for his life. Here are a couple photos from his special day, April sixth, that we were able to celebrate with his Grampa, Grammy & Granna who came all the way from Michigan.

We continued his birthday tradition (two years running, woo hoo!) starting our morning off with breakfast out.

Then, we CUT THE MULLET! If you know us, you know how excited I was for this moment! This was all apart of a pact we made as a family to cut one beard and one mullet on one special day, Eli’s birthday. For me, the day couldn’t come fast enough! Uncle Travis kept Eli occupied with a ‘show’ on his phone and I’d say dad did a great job!

We ended the day taking a few shots of the bday boy, opening gifts and celebrating with chocolate cake and our community group, not just the goodness of Jesus for the gift of two years with our boy, but also his goodness in the sacrifice of his own life so we might live. It was a Good Friday, indeed.

Love this progression! Can’t wait for next year.

We’d also like to give a shout out to our amazing go-to graphic designer, Travis Larkin, celebrating his birthday tomorrow! Happy April all!
