Warren the Singer

He's available to rent for parties and weddings-just call for pricing.

Beanbags and Cookies

For his birthday, Jake's Grandpa & Grandma gave him a beanbag chair. Both boys love to sit in it and look at books, but mostly they like to run and jump on it! I haven't captured that yet, but here are some cute ones of them relaxing in it.

Last weekend we went to Ryan's parent's home for the annual Christmas cookie decorating party. Dennis and Cathi and the Rutherford family have been getting together every year for the past I don't know how many years, probably since they were all in college, to decorate cookies, and at Easter time, to decorate eggs. It's quite a production now with the expansion of the families (our family alone is now 11, and the Rutherford's this year were 8), but it is a fun time to catch up and eat (decorate) some yummy cookies. I only got 1 picture this year, I was too busy frosting!

What do two VERY cute boys look like?

How Boys Play with Toys

The Golden Compass

Hi all-

Al Mohler has a great review of the movie The Golden Compass and why we should be concerned as Christians about the message of the movie. You can read it on his blog here.

Birthday Fun!

Our little guy, our firstborn, is 3! His birthday was on Friday, and he had a blast turning a year older.

On Friday, he got presents from us and lots of balloons, which he and Warren loved. All the helium is gone now, but the boys are still playing with them, seeing what it takes to pop them (and torture mom). Warren's favorite method is biting.

We topped the day off with a pizza dinner (which Jake picked out) and cake with dinosaur candles.

Saturday afternoon we met Ryan's parents and the family at Downtown Disney and took Jake to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner. Before dinner, though, one of his presents from Grammy and Papa was to go to the Build-A-Bear workshop and make a stuffed animal. Jake picked out a puppy and named it Petey.

At Rainforest, we couldn't have had a more perfect spot to eat! They sat us right in front of one of the huge aquariums so we got to watch the fish swim during our meal. They kids all got a kick out of that.

After dinner, the 4 of us walked over to the huge Christmas tree on the way out to the car and took lots of pictures. Jake had been begging to see it ever since we arrived at the park, so we just couldn't turn him down.

All in all, it was a great celebration of one special boy!
