Happy Birthday, Cade!

How did we go from this -

To this...

Today my little boy turned 5!  Here he is on his new scooter he got to open this morning.  He was so excited he ran and put on his boots and jacket and gave it a spin.  What a stud.

Where did all the time go?!  I am so glad to have Cade in my life.  He is such a fantastic kid.  He is the best big brother any girl could ask for and does a great job taking care of his sisters.  He is a wonderful helper around the house and with all the animals.  He has the most wild imagination and is so creative and smart.  

We went to Fatz today for lunch then came home for some ice cream and cookies.

Later we went for a walk and I asked Cade what he'd like for dinner.  The sky was the limit.  Cereal... or eggs... or whatever he wanted  ;)  At first he said, "Yeah - I want birthday cereal!  Oh!  Wait!  I have an idea!  Actually I want a sandwich and I want a candle in my sandwich so I can blow it out!"  

So that's just what we had...

He even wanted to wear the hat he got at the library today during story time.  He made us sing to him and everything.


I love you, Cade!  Happy Birthday!

Eliza's Blessing

We usually wait and do our babies' blessings when they are a few months old, but decided this time to go ahead and do it while family was already in town.

Cade was quite the entertainer...

Eliza was blessed in a dress that was my mom's when she was a baby.

And here's just a few pictures of the kids enjoying their new baby sister over the past few days - 
Cade picked a flower for her at church.  (We need to have a talk about where it is appropriate to pick flowers and where it is not.)

I just love how small she is.
