Happy Birthday Michael!

I can hardly believe that my "baby" is 4!!!
It seems like just yesterday, that I was on the way to the hospital to be induced, with my sweet Michael. I had a very easy labor, I was induced two weeks early at 4:30pm on March 23rd, and delivered Michael Daniel weighing 5lbs 9 oz at 7:19 PM. Michael was such a good baby he nursed until he was 18 months old. He was a good sleeper until he turned two.... :) He is my "spirited child". He has such a big heart, but likes to "march to the beat of his own drum".... Michael is the one that makes my Dad's eyes twinkle, he just laughs when I tell him the latest thing that Michael has done. Apparently, I am getting a taste of how I was.(Hard to believe, I know :) )
We had dinner & celebrated at Red Robin with my Dad last night and with cake and presents.
He got so many fun things, Wii games and new books.
I bought him a new pillow..... a couple of months ago, I bought a new pillow for myself, and he has been nuts about it, So I decided to get him his own. Matthew got him a Pokemon DS game. Daddy got him the hamburger slider cooker, which he has been wanting for months! He also got Bolt and a new DVD player of his own, it is portable and "kid tough".
His actual family/friend party will be on Saturday, we are having it at a local soccer club and Michael is counting down the days!
Michael you will ALWAYS be my baby! Happy 4th Birthday "Twinks"!
We love you!

Thank you God for the gift of my sweet Michael, please watch over him as he grows and keep him healthy and safe, always!

"I pray that the Lordwill bless you . . .as long as you live."
Psalm 128:5

Our Spring Break.....

I am back....well sort of :) We had a great Spring Break and I am gearing up for Michael's Birthday tomorrow and all kinds of stuff this week....Hoping I will still have some "blogging time".
We spent Spring Break at Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City(an indoor water park), with our friends, Dave, Kristin, Josh, Caleb & Briana. We had a blast! We swam and went on the the slides over and over again! We went one night to the T-Rex Cafe, the kids loved it! The weather was BEAUTIFUL while we were there, so at night we were able to be outside and enjoy it! On St. Patty's Day, we ate outside at a place called The Yard House, the food was excellent! Then we did a little shopping at the Legends, we came back to the lodge with some yummy caramel apples from Rocky Mountain Factory. Then played some games at the arcade. We also enjoyed the pj story time at the Lodge one night with some yummy ice cream! The boys also played mini-golf. Kristin and I even got to go to the gym one morning :) We had such a great time, with wonderful friends, and are looking forward to the next trip.....

After we came home, I got a bad virus! So I have been sick since Wed night :(
Finally feeling a little better Saturday and today and hoping it is going to skip the rest of the family! We went to dinner last night and then to our friends Cathie & Fred's wedding today. I am up late baking Michaels' birthday cake and wrapping gifts......and of course typing this post :)
So good night for now.........
