Birthday Bash!

Hope turned 4 on the 28th and Love turned 2 on the 31st. Who would have guessed our two youngest girls would share not only the same birthday month but birthday week? It was a lot of fun. We had hot dogs, smoked sausages, and brats and of course cake and ice cream. This time we tried that Life Savers rainbow sherbet too(per Hope's request)...that stuff is yummy!! We had a small family party...even a small one is big around here though...we are so fortunate to have so many family members so near by...a few were missed (you know who you are)but we will see them soon! The girls are now going to be dressed to the nines. Oh, and the swing set and play house given early are still big hits with all the kiddos. The girls got some money and gift cards :)

Our little Hope has grown up so much this past year. I miss her being little. She has been an awesome big sister and has such a joyful heart...sometimes to the point of me actually saying..."quit laughing". Once she gets started...she has such a hard time stopping. But, I love her laugh. She has recently added one that sounds much like Arnold Horseshack. It is quite a laugh...and Love has caught on...oh my! She amazes me. She is bright, loving, fun, exciting and full of energy!

And Love, well, this very well may have been her first celebrated we tried to do it up for her. She has been such an easy going, laid back, happy, affectionate and fun loving child. I can't wait to see what the next year holds for her. She is just beginning to say some words although I know she understands far more than she can communicate.

To say we have been blessed would be an understatement....I can't believe our two youngest are now 2 and how time flies...tear...sniff...
