Happy Birthday Poppop/Dad!

Yesterday Dave, David and I all met our beloved Poppop/Dad for lunch to celebrate his birthday! We met Terri and Kaylynn and it was a wonderful and fun time. Anytime David gets to see his cousin Kaylynn, he is happy!!! David made a special birthday card for his Poppop and was so excited to see him. We hope Poppop/Dad had a special birthday...we love you!!!

Thanksgiving in...February!

Friends of ours, Jacob and Emily, cooked us and a few other friends an entire turkey dinner yesterday! It was delicious and so much fun to be with our friends. David enjoyed playing with his little friends Eli, Jake, Ethan and Nathan and much fun was had by all. We also learned a really fun card game called Guillotine. We are definitely going to get that game.

Thanks to Jacob and Emily, we all enjoyed a delicious turkey dinner in the middle of February. Fun!

Well, I (Sarah) turned 30 this past week. I have been thinking about the past thirty years and I have so much to be thankful for! I have a wonderful family, a dear husband and precious son (and another on the way!), and faithful friends, some of whom I've known for over 20 years! As I look back over thirty years, I see one thing that stands above all the rest: God's faithfulness. Even in the midst of my unfaithfulness, He has never let me go. I have truly known the goodness and mercies of my Savior all of my days.

Daddy and David

Happy Valentine's Day continued...

Happy Valentine's Day!

David and I had a fun day making Valentine's Day treats for Daddy! We made Daddy a card that David drew and painted and we made special Valentine's day cupcakes. David had a blast (and made a mess!) helping me cook the cupcakes and especially ice them. He enjoyed the "nummies"! Daddy and David had much fun eating the treats together. :-)

Fun family getaway

We just got back from a wonderful trip to Willow Valley in Lancaster, PA. We swam and relaxed and had so much fun together! David LOVED the pool and wanted to "swim in the water" all day long! We made a lot of fun memories and we look forward to next year returning with David and his baby brother. My mom made the trip with us and we could not have had a more refreshing time together.
