A Tutu and a Woodland Climber

Today was a big day!! The mail came and had a wonderful gift from Shawna and Miss Sophia!! Shawna had made us tutu just like Sophia had!! If you want to know who Sophia and Shawna are you can click on Soaking Up Sophia on my blog list. Sophia was born a week after Clara, I think. (correct me if I am wrong Shawna) and was also born in Utah in the same area!! I just thought it was a great way of God bringing people together. The only drawback is we don't live in the same area....so I miss the great playdates they have!!! Maybe one day we can be blessed with an in-peson meeting. Anyway.....THANK YOU Shawna and Sophia for taking time out and thinking of us!! It is very much appreciated! We LOVE it! We waited out in the driveway with our tutu on to meet daddy home from work!

This is more like my little princess.....wearing her tutu while playing in the dirt and mulch at the same time. =D

To top off the tutu....Daddy picked up the Woodland Climber by Step 2 from Toys R Us t lunch today. He is a the bestest Daddy ever! He put it together after dinner and we had a great time. Cousin Katelyn was over and had dinner with us and also played. Here are some shots of the fun!!

The kids loved playing with the box, of course. It was ripped to shreds when the evening was all said and done.

Be sure to check out the new videos I added to our video link at the top right. I got video of the kids playing in the box too. Also, Clara LOVED sliding down face first. I got her cracking up in video!! All in all a great day!!

Thanks again, Shawna!!

Mikki, I love your blog! Your mom sent me the link and now I get to see first hand the beautiful family that she has told me about. Your mom is a treasure in my life. The help that she is spiritually as well as with her friendship and willingness to help with my kids has just put me on my knees, humbled that God would care enough about me to send me a friend like her!! I love to hear her talk about your family as well as your brother's and their families.... the love that she has for all of you just almost makes her giddy when she shares the love in her heart! You are so blessed to have her as a mother!!! I am blessed to have her as a friend and a mentor. We've traveld many of the same roads, just at different times in life, and I would not be where I am today in my walk with God without her willingness to be a vessel for God and His kingdom. She has walked me out of dark days and rejoiced with me in victories in Christ I've gained. I am certain that you are just as every bit of wonderful as she is. All three of your children are precious!!! I don't know how you do it....I hardly make it through each day...the activity of three babies 3 years old and under is just more than I ever could have imagined. BUT, God is good and as long as I remember to depend on Him and seek Him for strength and wisdom, He provides. I look forward to getting to know you and through our friendship gain wisdom from another mother who I already admire and respect. I hope that your day is wonderful and I look forward to hearing from you! Here is my blog: www.dkkmacole.blogspot.com

that's the same climber thing we have in our backyard - we got it for Kaden when he turned two and it's getting lots of use three years later (I can't believe it's been that long!)
