Max {turns 8!}

Max, Hard to believe you are eight...just a mere two years until DOUBLE DIGITS!!! This year you will be in 3rd grade!!! You asked for a LEGO Ninjago cake as you {and Evan} are currently obsessed with everything NINJA...and LEGO. Untitled I made the cake and the Ninjago print with your name was an ETSY find. Love that site and the cake turned out great! Untitled We got you Ninjago LEGOS and some Pokemon cards for your birthday, and you and Evan happily played the night away until we made you two go to bed since your birthday was on a Sunday and you guys had school the next day. Untitled You are really the BEST oldest brother we could ask for. You are always looking out for your little brothers and are such a help. You are a wonderful reader, and it's fun to talk about books with you. Last season was a really fun soccer season and really look forward to this have really grown as a player and it's a joy to come to your games! Untitled Your heart is so sweet and you want the best for everyone, and you are so concerned about anything that may be troubling. You sometimes watch the news with me and have so many questions and worries {you get that from your Dad} about the world. We are so thankful for you our sweet firstborn son. love always, xoxo Mom

Evan {turns 6}

   6 years old!!!
This birthday you asked for a Skylander cake {a wii game you are obsessed with} and after calling around to see that it would cost $50+  for a cake, I decided to attempt it myself and you were THRILLED with the outcome...made me so glad.

 We got you some Skylander figures for the game and some LEGO Ninjago sets. You and Max are Obsessed.
This year you are in first grade, which is hard for me to believe. You invited half the neighborhood to your "birthday" which I had several inquiries about but we had a small family celebration at home as we are getting ready to go to Door County with Dad's family.
   You really just love people, even when you and the neighborhood kids aren't getting along or they are teasing you, you still love them and play with them. 4
You and Max are still best buds, we just moved you two into your own room {former guest room} and you two will be up there for hours playing LEGOs together. You rarely fight....on the other hand you and Liam are always getting into it, but when you do play nicely together or when you help him out with something, it just melts my heart. You ADORE Declan, doting on him all of the time wanting to take him outside so you can show him off to your friends. You are also very excited for the new baby to come, asking when he/she will be here.
   You are stubborn at times but you desire to do the right thing, and to love Jesus...which makes your Dad and I so glad. WE love you so much. Our second born son!
your mama
