Nathan and I celebrated our tenth anniversary yesterday!  It felt like such a remarkable milestone, so we marked it with a little mini-vacation to the beach!  And how appropriate to celebrate our first decade of marriage with our newest baby in tow.

What a sweet and blessed ten years it's been, and we pray for many more!

Better Watch Out

Imagine you're just lying around, minding your own business, looking cute, as usual.

When suddenly, out of nowhere...

You're attacked!  By a sweaty, four-eyed, baby-eating giant!

But you're used to it.  So it's okay.

Ripe old age of 3

Evan turned 3 yesterday!

Rather than buy Thomas the Tank Engine trains for the top of the cake (okay, I sorta forgot...), I sculpted trains.  That's right, in the midst of a mile-long to-do list, I spent an afternoon making the train decorations out of peanut-butter dough.  But you knoe what the say about all work and no play.  It was kinda fun!  And Evan loved having an edible train on his cake.

Of course, his little brother was right there the whole time because it's good to  have help turning three.

His presents  included a big set of construction trucks, which are wonderfully engrossing for all three boys and it's nice that there are plenty to go around.  Hooray for less fighting!

(But boo for Mommy's bare feet that have already found a number of tiny construction cones.)

Three is a good age.
