Saturday with a blank calendar!

Oh what a joy to have nothing on the calendar! Life still needs to happen, but when it's at our own pace, and all together, it's just nice.

So, Tim was able to go to his new favorite store, the 'new' HyVee, which is conveniently down the street from us, and procure his ingredients for ribs on the grill. The 3 older kids went with him to help in the shopping process, and they managed to stay to the list! The rest if Tim's day was spent prepping ribs and his sermon for tomorrow. Very fun for him.

The big boys were in and out, round and about the neighborhood, playing with friends and having a great time. Samantha and the twins are all healthy now, after their 6 day quarantine for flu symptoms, so they were out and about the house, playing and just being loud!

I had time to rearrange the boys room,moving out the queen bed and replacing it with 1/2 of the bunk beds we have to put up there. Hopefully God will bring us just the right little boy to add to that big boy room, and now we have the space to do so. Until then, the big boys are loving the new arrangement and extra elbow room to do some serious Lego building! Josiah got another new set for uncle Steve and auntie Stephanie today! (It's already built)

It was such a a nice weather day, I had to put on shorts and a T-shirt. It was cloudy, rainy and a bit muggy. I was even able to get a tad bit of fresh air into the house!! I loved that.

Josiah turns 6 years old

What a boy! Excited, lover of friends, spunky, smart, athletic, lovable, huggable, cuddly, just to name a few of his greatest traits.

Josiah got to have a snow day for his birthday. So, playing in the snow was part of his day, plus plenty of time playing Madden Football and watching his favorite shows. He was in heaven!

The birthday fairy worked her magic while the birthday boy slept & the big surprise was breakfast in his room & the privilege to watch shows on mom's IPad!

Josiah really wanted to play party games on his birthday. So, we played bat the balloon & had a snowman making contest together. Sweet boy invited Laurey & Zeke over for dinner & cake. We all watched a movie of Josiah's choice, Ice Age! So cute to listen to him giggle at the movieI
