Jasper turns 2


Well is was a big event in our household and we had lots of guest which makes us all happy around here. We were especially delighted to have both Alana and Wendy stay with their significant others! It was wonderful to have Joel and Bob here, of course it was kind of crazy so we can't wait to have everyone back to visit one couple at a time so we can devote more time to them. They'll have to come soon before the snow drifts cover the highways leading to our home. Nancy, Bear, and Papa were flown in by uncle Jeffy so that was quick and easy for them. OK, on to the birthday activities!


Matt made super yummy (so I'm told) fried chicken which was served picnic style and I made buckets of potato salad. We also had some fruit and pb & j's for the kids. Of course I have to mention the dirt cake, which in the dump truck seemed to amaze and confuse Jasper all at once! The look on his face seemed to say, "Can I eat it? Do I play with it or in it?" He did almost roll the truck off the table at one point! Seeing his face and his sisters made all the work worth it. It was a joy to have so many of our family and friends gathered and we are truly lucky and blessed to be surrounded with such love.

Thank you for note! You're daughter is in gymnastics on Mondays right? I have been meaning to get info about the MOMs group, so funny you found us! We've been here just 3+ weeks and I am desperate to talk with someone other than my 3 and 1 1/2 year old, sorry to my husband, he can be good conversation, but...
oh, rambling, yes, I would like to know when the group meets, and am up for much needed scrapping, as retreats and such are the only way it seems to happen now. my email is eamartig@yahoo.com, easier to get info that way. Thank you again!
