Many people relax after Christmas enjoying the peace and quiet after all the hustle and bustle of the Holidays. In our house there is no relaxing until after Valentines Day. Nelson, Carrie and I have birthdays in January (not to mention sister-in-law's, nephews, nieces, and a brother-in-law) then Deric and Samantha in the begining of February. This year we also have a niece getting baptized and Sammy's baptism as well.... Let me just say that things are still VERY hectic for us!!! Here is some birthday "news" to keep you updated....
Nelson's Birthday Jan 1
(yes I know I posted on his birthday but this is a picture and a video for his Meme!)
My Birthday Jan 22
Sorry no cute picture of me... photo shop wasn't working. But this is the yummy low fat low carb carrot cake that Deric made for me (I am really trying to eat healthy, and I honestly mean it when I say yummy!)
Jessica also asked her teacher to teach her "Happy Birtday to You" on the baritone... she had only learned it 3 days earlier... it was a very nice gift!!
Carrie Joyce turned 4 on January 31st. She is an amazing little girl with lots of spunk and a mind of her own. I can hardly believe that she is four already... it seems like just yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital all dressed in pink. As the youngest girl you would think that she would get lost in the crowd, but not Carrie, she is always sure to be heard! I am grateful for this wonderful child that we have the opportunity to raise. She continues to teach me many things... we love you Carrie!
This first picture is Carrie 2 months old. The second is Carrie on her birthday and Wally 3 months old... can you see the family resembalance? Carrie LOVES Wally!
We had a "rainbow" party the day after her birthday. The younger cousins and her friend Abby all came over for a fun time filled with rainbow fruit and cupcakes.
Coming up.... Deric's Birthday was today and Samantha's Birthday is on Monday. I promise the posts will come soon!!
