Memorial Weekend

We had a fabulous time at the lake this last weekend!  It was a little strange since our oldest had to stay home because of work. We have entered a new phase in our life and I am just not quite ready for it.  We did the typical things at the lake...tubing, eat yummy food, swimming in the lake and just enjoying family time without other distractions! I will have to find my cord to upload pics from my phone.  I brought my camera but for some reason lately we always forget to use it and just use our phones!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Memorial Day!

I do have a few sewing projects and other things I am working on that I hope to post about soon!

Christian is 11 (in December that is!)

I really can't believe how fast time is flying by with my older children.  I feel like they are just toddling around one day and then you turn around and they are on the brink of teenage hood!! 

11 things about Christian:

2.  Christian loves anything electronic: WII, DS, MEEP, TV which means I have to be good about limiting it or his brain would turn to mush!!! ;)
3.  He loves legos.
4.  He comes into my room every night to tell me he loves me and gives me a hug! (seriously the best!!!)
5.  He really looks up to his older brother.
6.  He looooooves cheesecake! He has asked for a cheesecake every year for the past several years for his birthday cake.
7.  He loves to help others.
8.  He is sensitive.
9.  He is a great big brother to his younger brothers and sisters.
10.  Christian has a good sense of humor!
11. Christian loves to share his testimony of Jesus Christ and does it every testimony meeting we have at our church!

So grateful to have this kiddo in our lives.  He blesses us in so many ways!
Love you tons and tons Christian!
