Party Time!

November is a busy month for us when it comes to birthdays. I have 1 brother and 2 sisters with November birthdays, plus our 2 kids. So when it comes to a party we just all get together and celebrate everyone!
This year we headed out to Portage la Prairie and the indoor swimming pool.
Our kids were so excited about going for weeks! When the day finally came they were thrilled.
In the morning we worked on Andy's cake, he wanted a killer whale cake, and I figured I'd give it a try. I worked out great, and even made it to the pool in one pice! :)

Andy and his cake, we took some pictures before we left, just in case. :)

Swimming, splashing and smiles.

My Little Girl Is 3

This Monday was another special day our place, Kayla turned 3!
What a personality you have! Such a heart for others, from helping Mommy in the kitchen, ALL THE TIME, to giving your brothers a hand with taking off their shoes, or finding their clothes, you are always ready to help out!
And you love your Daddy! He is your favourite person in the world, it melts my heart when I see you sitting with him, having your own little conversations, you two are so sweet together!
We love you Kayla, we are so thankful that God chose to bless our family with your smile. 
We can't wait to see what He has planned for your life!
Happy Birthday Crazy Larry! :)

On Kayla's birthday we had a relaxing day, watching some of her favourite shows, playing and doing school. After Daddy came in Kayla opened gifts and then we got supper ready and had some of Kayla's friends over.

Waiting for presents. 

Gifts from Brendan.

And Andrew.

Thank you hugs.

Birthday Time!!

Where has the time gone?! 5 years ago we were in the hospital, brand new parents, starting a part of our lives that I would never trade for the world.
The plans that we had for Andrew were changed before he was even born. 
During the next three long months we placed him in God's hands over and over, not knowing what the future would hold, not knowing what kind of condition our son might have, not knowing, just trusting.
And now 5 years later, here we are. We have been blessed with a healthy son, kind hearted, a wonderful brother and amazing son!
We know that God has a wonderful and amazing plan for your life Andrew and we are blessed to be a part of it and we can't wait to see what God has in store for your life!

On Andrew's birthday we had my parents over for supper and celebrating!

Auntie Ruth with Brendan and Andrew.

Story time with Auntie Rita.

And there was a hockey game with Grampa and Brendan.

After that Grama and Auntie Ruth made some delicious ice cream cones!

5 candles!

Blowing hard!

Brendan enjoying every minute of the cold sweetness!

Our little blessings!

Theres nothing quite like ice cream running down your chin!

Then it was present time.

Lots of fun gifts for a 5 year old!

We love you Andrew and pray God's richest blessings on you in the coming year.
