Happy Birthday Emily

Our sweet Emily turned 7 years old today. She will have some great memories of this day. She was in charge of all the activites so she decided to start the celebration with a delicious lunch at Moe's followed by a movie (WALL-E). Spagetti and meatballs was her choice for dinner, and let's not forget cake and ice cream. Her gifts were plentiful including lots of new school clothes, 10 pairs of earrings, a family board game, manicure supplies, and wooden stamps. Happy Birthday Emily. You are cherished!!! Don't you love her first baby picture?

Happy Birthday Jonathan

Jonathan turned 9 years old today - the last of the single digits! He is growing and maturing so fast. Where hast the time gone? Yesterday we celebrated with our friends Royce and Brandon at Red Robin. Today we celebrated with just our family at home. I made his favorite meal ever - porcupine meatballs. Jonathan also received some very exciting gifts including two new Wii games, a Nintendo DS, some new school clothes, and a new bicycle. Of course we finished off the night with some yummy cake. Happy Birthday Jonathan! We love you so much!

Timothy's Blessing

Our precious son, Timothy, was blessed today by his father in church today. For those of you unfimiliar with this occasion, it is similar to a christening. He did surpisingly well during the prayer. For those of you who have been in his presence, you know he is a very fussy baby, so for him to stay peaceful for that period of time is shocking. Isn't he handsome in his little suit? We love him tons!!

4th of July

Plenty of visitors came our way to celebrate America's birthday. Jon's parents, brother James, and his family joined us for some customary Independence Day festivities. Fireworks, a BBQ, and swimming filled the day. Here are some fun pictures from that day. Don't you love Dylan's frightened face?
