G has discovered how to do fun things with her tongue!

From September 2013


I decided to try a recipe for making a GF loaf of bread in the crock pot. It wasn’t too bad. There was a small part in the middle that didn’t fully cook though. I will probably try it again after figuring out what to do about the middle.

G thought chewing on her hand was more fun than watching Sam open gifts.

Sam picked our supper- hot dogs with mac and cheese. He also ate off the “Your Special Day” plate.

Happy Birthday, Sam!!!! We love you so much!

Today was his birthday party. We first went to the Pineville Fire Department for a tour and chance to climb on the firetrucks. Finally, we ended up at LC for cake and presents. It was so much fun and Sam definitely loved it. Heatwave, the fire truck, is one of his favorite Transformer Rescue Bots so we thought this was the perfect 5th Birthday party for him. Because we live in Louisiana, he had a dollar pinned to his outfit to signify that it was his birthday.

My parents were at the party. It was very helpful to just give my dad the camera and have him take pictures.

I really like that Travis was able to reserve a large room in the student center for the cake part of the party. He left the fire station a bit early so that he could go by Harlows and pick up the special cake and then get the tables and such set up. Therefore, when we got there everything was ready to go!

The birthday boy decided he could push his sissy to the car when the party was over.

Immediately upon arriving home, Sam, Travis and my dad went to work building Sam’s Lego fire truck. He loves it. I think we might have a Lego fan on our hands now! Yikes!!

We had a blast at the fire station birthday party. I am so thankful we get to do life with the people and that our kids all get along!!
