Birthdays, give aways, new baby oh my!!



Today is Carson's birthday. He is 6 yrs old and boy did he wake up early and let us know it! He is very intellectual and I am so sad to say, a perfectionist. We have so much fun with him but he is so hard on himself and that is with no pressure from us at all in fact as I type this he is in the kitchen crying because he is losing at a game of checkers to his dad. I find it so interesting how God has given us three boys born into the same household and to the same parents that are so completely different.

This past Monday the 28th was my mother-in-laws birthday. We did a little family celebration at my sister-in-laws house for both Carson and Memere. It was a lot of fun. Memere is very special to us and we hope it was a great day for her. Here is a picture of her and Carson, of course we could not leave out Cameron, blowing out candles on the cake.

It was 57 that day and pretty windy and for some reason the little ones decided to get into my sister-in-law's new pool. I guess it looked too inviting becasue they stayed in for a little bit and I still can't believe neither one got sick. Thanks for the dinner and the fun Aunt Helene and Uncle Bruce.
This week we also got the news that our neice, Janna and her husband Billy are expecting a baby in December. The first Great Greatchild in our family on both sides. Janna is Helene and Bruce's daughter. I can't wait to get my hands on that little one and let me tell you if it is a girl Watch out because Janna is the only girl grandchild and 28 years and 7 boys later we are all hoping to add a little girl to the mix. Having said that I in no way want to take away from these awesome boys in the family and if God gives another boy than we will be equally excited.

I was so excited to win a give away held at this blog. When I got my starbucks card I immediately used it and I love the Vera Bradley Zip clip. Thank you!


Have a great day!!
Blessings,

Linda,
Birthdays are so exciting ~~ We have a BIG b-day coming up in August, Dakota will be 16!! I know it's not until August, but I'm preparing myself now, so maybe I'll still be able to get out of bed and function as the driving alone begins :), or better yet maybe I'll just have a permanent groove in the floor from being on my face before the Lord on his behalf (the second option's the best one!!) Well, HAPPY B-DAY Carson from a fellow perfectionist (of sorts), and congrats on the free stuff!! I just love winning stuff!!

Having 3 boys that are so different is so much fun but a little overwhelming at times, isn't it?
Glad you enjoyed your prize and thanks for mentioning it and linking to my blog.
Next week is my 1 month anniversary of blogging and I am planning to have another Starbucks card giveaway to celebrate.
