Happy Birthday Daddy!


Today was the big 3-0 for Steve. He insisted that he did not want a surprise party! I surprised him by NOT having a surprise birthday party!!! It was hard for me to do, but I resisted. It turned out to be a nice evening with just the family since my sister and her family weren't able to make it. We grilled steaks, had mashed potatoes, yellow cake with chocolate frosting (cake decorations provided by the kids=lots of sprinkles and m&ms!!!) and mint chocolate chip blue bell ice cream (Steve's favorite). As you can see, the kids were thrilled to be able to blow out Steve's candles for him. You are the best Dad and husband EVER...Happy Birthday Steve!!!










I don't think he will have ANY problem next week for his first birthday!!!

Trent's First Day of Kindergarten

Trent's first day of "real" school was today. The bus picked him up at 6:58am and won't be back until 3:18pm. Most Mom's would have dropped their child off, especially on the first day, but Trent begged and begged to ride the bus. Luckily his neighborhood friends that are older and experienced were riding the bus too! It wasn't too hard saying good-bye this morning because he was soooooo excited, but the day is dragging on. I just want him home so I can ask him a MILLION questions. How was your teacher? Was she nice? How was snacktime? Did you eat all your lunch? Did you make any new friends? Did you see any old friends? Did you get lost? Did you have to go to the bathroom by yourself? So many questions and I still have three more hours before he gets home!!!
Camryn woke up a little bit earlier than usual to see her brother off at the bus!

Trent's nieghborhood friends that will be riding the bus with him all year long!!!

Brock is crawling...FINALLY!

Brock is our latest crawler at 10 months and 10 days (Trent was walking at 11 months). He is so mellow tempered that I just don't think he had the strong desire that Camryn had to get around everywhere. Not to mention that all he had to do to get his brother and sister to get him something was make a small noise!!! Here he is on the first day that he actually decided to move forward with his legs!
