The kids call them "Princess" and "Scooter," but Christina calls them "Thing One" and "Thing Two."

Video: Spray Park Fun

We took the kids and Auntie Danelle (who is visiting from Minnesota) to a local park this past Saturday and discovered that the spray park is up and running. Everyone had a blast!

Happy, Happy Birthday, SammySam!!

So your trademark hair may no longer be, but you are still as cute and cuddly as ever, our sweet Sammy!  This last year has been a kick, watching you grow in size and stature, in your ability to communicate (in English), and watching you gain interests (okay, passions) for trains, race cars, and most recently, firefighting! Your adorable "woowoowoo" firetruck imitation often reverberates throughout the house and the sweet way you try to include your baby brother "Wijah" in your repeated viewings of "Firefighter Barney" are quite endearing... if not a wee bit nerve-wracking at times!

We love your joyful heart.  Yes, you can get upset and the world certainly knows it when you do, but most often you are good-natured and happy.... and your cuddles, hugs, and kisses, combined with that scrunched nose and the twinkle in your eyes are absolutely awesome. And when you sing? Too sweet. Just too sweet.

We love, love, love you SammySam.  Only an awesome, creative, kind, generous, all-knowing God would put someone like you in our family... and we're so thankful that He did!! We pray that as you continue to grow in size and stature, you'll also grow in an unshakable knowledge that the same holy God who made you, loves you. And He made a way for you to love Him, too. We hope that you do that. With all of your heart.

Happy, happy THIRD birthday, Sammy!!
