Samuel's Second Birthday

Sammy I love you so much my heart could burst! I can't believe I've had two thrilling years with you! 

With all my love,


After everyone had left. Maddison and I were cleaning up the party on our own. It was a nice night and Sammy wanted to swing on the baby swing with his firefighter hat on. He looked so happy. So content to be swinging on his swing at night. I hope I never forget the mental image of my 2 year old sammy content on his baby swing.

Danny my soccer superstar!

Today was Danny's last game of his first (ever) season of soccer and he killed it! Scored a goal! It was from a distance too! His first time ever being on a team, so I guess we can scratch that off the list of milestones. Oh Danny, you are fantastic!

Fitting that this sign read gratitude at a time when I'm on such a tight budget! Trying to have a fun Thanksgiving on a budget seemed like an impossible task. Funny enough, We had a wonderful thanksgiving and we just kept running into more and more money. We felt rich at a time when we were spread thin.

One of our favorite pastimes is waiting for the bus.  Last year I knew down to the minute when Danny's bus would show up 

One of our favorite passtimes is to sit in our garage and wait for Dannys bus to show up at our house. We also enjoy watching the dump truck do it's work. I think it's funny that we sit on the driveway all the time. But my kids get a kick out of it. So we keep doing it! Sammy is especially enthusiastic about it. He's so fun.
