Pictures with Santa on Brian's Birthday

When Brian got home from work the boys and I surprised him with a Star Wars birthday party. We had to have dessert first due to Brian blowing out the candles that were in a punch bowl cake. The boys and I had so much fun surprising him. After dinner we loaded up the boys and went to the new Bass Pro Shop. Brian had fun looking (and wishing) for many of the "toys" that he would love to purchase. He realized why I like shopping by myself!

By now most of you know that Zeke is our laid back kid. We could not believe when he had a total melt down while visiting Santa. We laughed so hard. Here is Ike smiling and loving on Santa and here is Zeke doing the "all done" sign and screaming his head off! I love fun family memories!!!

Ike's Birthday

As many of you know it is Ike's birthday today. We celebrated his birthday at my sisters gym (NXS Tumbling). We had so much fun with our friends and family. I still can not believe that he is 4. Today he woke up at 2:45am with a fever. Not a fun way to start out your birthday. However, while cuddled up with him on the couch I looked at the clock at it was 2:54am the time he was born -- 4 years ago. I was just thankful that the Lord reminded me at that moment what time he was born. Giving many thanks for you Ike Man on your very special day. I loved cuddling up with you this morning!
Praying that Jesus will be real to you and that there will not be a time that you do not remember loving our Father. Most importantly that you will always remember how much our Father loves you. I love you my Ike Man!

As many of you know Zeke is my adventuresome boy. He loves to climb and ride toys as fast as his little legs will enable them to go. He even pushed himself off into the gymnastics pit the other day at my sister's gym. Laughing the whole time! However, he will be 17 months on the 20th and is so determined to crawl or get a toy walker (pushing very fast) to where he wants to go. We finally got him to walk the other day while encouraging him with a bowl of popcorn. He has only done this once. I know that I will be chasing him very soon. However, I wanted to post this fun video of evidence that he can walk --- however, he is choosing to get where he wants to go on his own terms. Ohhhh, I just love this little guy! I pray that he keeps this adventure spirit. I know that our Father is going to use it in a mighty way!
