Our beautiful baby girl.... Most of the time!

Isn't she so cute? Her Sunday dress, hair all done up nice.
The picture of precious... ish!?!

A smile that warms my day!

Anybody seen this European leader in a history book lately?

How do you yell when you are laughing?

What, me?
I didn't know that if I eat a picture it leaves evidence!

Happy Birthday, Jacob!

Jacob turned 4 on Saturday, December 6th! We had a birthday party at the park with family and friends. It was a lot of fun. Jacob was so excited and a little overwhelmed. We only had one meltdown - which is great considering all that has been going on in our lives. He wanted one of the trucks that was on his birthday cake before we had even really begun the party. Once I figured out what he wanted through all the crying, I switched the trucks and gave him the one he wanted and he was great for the rest of the day!

He got lots of cars and trucks and motorcycles and 4 wheelers and helicopters, and anything else that flies, drives, floats, or moves. He was in TOY HEAVEN! He also got some clothes. He was not quite as excited about those.

This is the cake Lena made for Jacob's birthday.
It was triple chocolate fudge with ground up oreos for the dirt.
It was not only beautiful, but very good!

Kids are so funny!

Last night I went to put Lily to bed and noticed that Jacob's lamp was on. When I went in to check on him I had found him asleep on the floor (mostly under his bed). Kids are so funny!

Lily has such a funny personality with so many silly faces!

Lydia is my mess in a dress for sure!

Brad's Birthday

Brad's birthday was September 21st. Our church planned a surprise party for him at our house after the Sunday evening service. They did a great job keeping it a secret. We had pizza and then cake and ice cream.

We had a great time at the party. Jacob and Lydia just love birthdays! They love to sing "Happy Birthday." They love birthday balloons, birthday cakes, birthday presents, and everything else you could possibly think of that has to do with birthdays. They had a lot of fun having everyone from the church at our house. Jacob was actually pretty upset when I told him that we couldn't go and get chicken nuggets after church with Red & Kim. (He just loves hanging out with Red and Kim - Red has a big truck and lets him mow the church with him on his lawnmower sometimes.)

The church went all out and got Brad a gift card for JCPenny. He was able to get a new suit, some shoes, a shirt, and a couple ties. Praise the Lord for His abundant blessings!
