Birthdays, Birthdays, and Birthdays


September is such a wonderful month! It is packed with all three of mine and the girls birthdays, all in the same week! Poor Caleb has it rough watching both the girls celebrate and getting nothing. But we explain to him that his "special" day will come and then it is ALL about him. I also get to tell him that just like Savanah and Kenny get to celebrate close together, when the new baby comes, he gets to be close in birthdays with the new baby too!

First of all, I wasn't going to mention anything about my birthday, but feel like I really need to because I got soooo spoiled. Seriously my sister kept saying "Is the doorbell ever going to stop ringing." So a huge thanks to my friends for spoiling me rotten and my family! I love you guys! Also to all the thoughtful phone calls, gifts, emails, and cards that were dropped by. And a HUGE thanks to my sweet and thoughtful husband who surprised me a week earlier with a four wheeler! I am super excited about it! Then on my birthday he surprised me and ordered the lens I have been eyeballing for sometime! And of course my sister who surprised me and came on my birthday! It was the best surprise of all! I enjoyed every minute of her and her families company!!




Savanah celebrated her birthday on Saturday and had a huge party. She had a pizza party, with face paintings (thanks Hanna), games, and a Pinata. She was so excited to have her cousins there too! I don't know what I would have done without Hanna here to help me!! I feel so sick most the time that her help was so greatly appreciated and needed!!




Then on Monday we had a small little celebration for Kennedy! She opened her presents and we sang to her too! She thought that was soooo special! I can't believe she is ALREADY three! Time is moving too quickly!!



I had to also show you our favorite "adopted" grandparents in the ward. Their names are Fred and Betty Jo Dunnell and we love them to pieces. Betty Jo and I have always shared such a special bond from the first time we met! She is the one who taught me how to bake bread ad use my wheat grinder. They stopped by to give the kids a little gift for their birthdays. Kenny loves Fred, asks for Fred all the time, and asked to invite him to her birthday party. She sits by them at church and they are so sweet to our children! WE LOVE THEM!!!

Happy Birthday to you all! I can't believe how big your girls are getting. I love that picture of Kennedy, her eyes are so pretty. I keep trying to convince Shane that I need a vacation and we should come down your way and visit. I would also love for you to take some family pictures. I hope that we can make it down soon. Take care and hope you are starting to feel better!
Love ya!
