My little man turned 13.

The first time he held Maddie

The first time he held Lillie

BFF (do boys say that?)

This is my favorite bouquet of flowers I have ever received.
One rainy Saturday morning I heard a little knock on my bedroom door.
And there was Sky with this big beautiful bouquet of wildflowers he went out and picked.
At first I didn't believe he had picked them himself, they looked so professional.
But he did, he searched our big field for the prettiest flowers and brought them to his mama.

Happy Birthday son!
You are the funniest, handsomest, sassiest 13 year old I've ever met.
I love you so much.
You make me so happy!

6 Months!
What's it like to be half a year old?

For this little one it's trying to cut some teeth in!

No smiles, just gnawing away like a little puppy.

Your almost crawling.
You just have to figure out how to get that tummy off the ground and then you'll be off!
(uh oh)
You've had green beans, squash, fresh banana, applesauce, sweet potato and carrots.
I gave you a few bites of mash potatoes.
And, a taste of Cool Whip. Which, of course, you LOVED!
Your growing too fast!
Slow down!
Your so squishy and cuddly, happy and drooly.
I just want it to last forever...

One Hundred Snowmen

I wanted to post these pictures before spring and I didn't quite make it.
So here is my last winter post on the first day of spring.
We had one beautiful sunshiny day with the perfect consistency of snow to make
a hundred snowmen.
And that is what we did.

Lily LOVED making this snowman. It's her first real snowman and everyone helped make it.

Of course we had to have some snowball fights!

Jonas had this AWESOME idea of building a snow skateboard ramp.
The boys took off the wheels of their skateboards and "skated" down.
It provided many hours of snow fun.

Lily went down it as a slide and loved it!

Sky did some cool jumps!

Daddy made some snow dolls for Lily.

And the day ended with making a huge Gulliver's travel type snowman with 99 tiny little snowmen all around. This was a group effort and everyone (except me and Maddie) worked hard on this until dark.
Lily helped make many of the tiny snowmen and she worked really hard and stayed so focused on it until they were all done.

Can you believe this was all made in one day?
Sky came in and said, "I never knew playing in the snow could be so much fun."
It was a good day!

Unbeschreiblich (Song: Nicole C. Mullen - Redeemer)

This is so inspirational! Watch it twice because the first time you'll watch it through tears!
