Birthday Fun

Last night we had a joint birthday celebration for Micah and Rosanna.
Here are the birthday boy and girl!

Micah was way more interested in his gifts this year than he was last year, and he took the time to play with each one before moving on to the next. Some of his gifts included a Magna Doodle from Granny & Grandpa Harder (to encourage his colouring skills without encouraging his skills of drawing on the furniture), a cell phone from Auntie Rosanna & Uncle Nathan and a broom and dust-pan set. For those of you who know Erik's incessant love for cleaning, sweeping the floor is just another way that Micah LOVES to be like his Daddy!
He also got a brand new bedding set from me and Erik for his big-boy bed. He was very excited to go to sleep last night with his new big pillow and blanket!

We enjoyed some homemade chocolate cake as well as a Dairy Queen Ice Cream cake. Micah loved the candles and had them almost completely blown out before we could even finish singing "Happy Birthday"!

Micah's had nothing but gifts and treats for the last couple of weeks and Christmas isn't even here yet. I'm afraid he's going to think this is a normal way of life from now on...

Jamie, you are an awesome mom! I loved watching you interact with Micah yesterday as he lingered from gift to gift. You are beautiful. Thank you for sharing your precious children with us!

I loved the birthday pics! What a big boy you have now. I also can't wait to meet Keziah. Will you be coming to our moms group Christmas dinner this coming Wednesday? I'd love to see you there, but I totally understand if you'd rather take it easy! Hopefully we can meet up one day soon.

Glad you guys had a fun party! I love the pictures of Micah sweeping the floor! Craig would be pretty pumped to hear that he's taking after his old roomie like that :) I think Craig and Erik were a perfect pair back at Bethany...Craig is just as much of a neat freak as Erik...if not MORE! I bet their room was neater than any of the girls' rooms :) haha
Hope you have a great Christmas as a family of 4!

I agree with Bonnie about Craig and Erik.
Glad you had fun. You are doing an awesome job managing life with 2 kids.
I'll have to come to you for advice in the spring. :0)
