Blog from Oma and Opa Burgess --
It has been almost 3 months since we have seen Layla and Easton! (We do visit with them on Skype quite often though.) Believe me when I say it is not the same! They are soooo cute, smart, sweet and cuddly. Steve and I cannot believe how big they have gotten. Kendra was the happiest baby and Easton is just like her in that way. Even though he looks like Bronson he has Kenera's disposition.
When Steve or I hold Layla it is like holding Kendra 29 years ago. It is almost like looking back in time when we look at her sweet, sweet face. She has many full face smiles for us all the time. Bronson's sister Joanie said it best in her blog when she described the twins. Hats of to you Joanie and by the way, you are a fantastic writer yourself. :)
Father's Day had a new meaning for both Steve and I this year. You hope and pray that someday you will be grandparents and it has finally arrived! It is very special to be here for Bronson's first Father's Day and witness the love he has for his children.
Phil and Connie, we were thinking of you quite often today, wishing you were here with us. Please know that we love you guys and can't wait to see you again. :) Happy Father's Day Phil!!!
I want to say something about my honey on this special day. Steve is a fantastic Dad and great man in so many ways. My respect and love for him grow each day as he walks out his life, using the gifts and talents that God gave him. I am always in awe of how much wisdom and insight he has. Thanks for being a part of our family! You have made me a better person and Mother.
We love you and are so proud of how you have jumped onto this crazy ride called fatherhood. You are doing a great job and we love you! Remember to grow your kids from the inside out and the rest will follow. Isn't it great to know that Jesus has a plan and when we believe Him and walk it out in faith He is right there to complete it.
I miss my father today but know that he is in heaven with Jesus. Thanks for everything Dad!
Dad Burgess, Steve and I hope your Father's Day was special and filled with love! Thanks for being a great example and Father!
