Charlotte's Birthday

At least 6 months ago, Benny decided that March 2 should be Charlotte's birthday.  And Benny doesn't forget anything.  Thus, today (although 1 day late), we celebrated.  Never has a chicken been quite so loved.

The cake is supposed to look like an ear of corn still in the husk.

A boy and his chicken...

Don't miss the singing and the candles!

When you wake up at the crack of dawn because you are so excited that it is Charlotte's birthday party day, you sometimes fall asleep while snuggling your mommy :)

Age 6 and 4!

Hard to believe Benny is now 6 and Claire is 4.  Love making their birthday cakes and planning their parties.

Then our princess turned 4 with her 'sparkle' party.

Mani, pedi, and hair-do on her actual birthday

And...a shop party complete with reese pie!

Nov. 25

Sometimes we think we need to do something extravagant or lavish to have a great day.  Not for me.  I'll mark it down in the history books as a great day.  Time with the kids, time with Kevin, productivity, and OSU beat Michigan :)

CBA put up its first Christmas tree

This cheerleader earned us a victory over *ichigan.

Marketing Tool :)

Benny is definitely our best marketing tool :)

God Hears Us When We Pray

Benny is enjoying singing in the children's choir this year.

Kelley's Island

 Our Kelley's Island trip!
Time with Daddy.

A two minute walk from our cottage

Lots of checkers...

Gorgeous sunsets

Kevin nearly had a heart attack that I told the kids they could swim and play in the sand in their clothes.

Beach baby!

Glacial grooves.

The walk from our cottage to the lake.

Our weekend cottage

The ferry boat ride...

A little ice cream.


Putting that Yukon to good use.

Sunday morning hike.

Couldn't have asked for nicer weather!  A lovely little weekend away!
