Joseph's 7th Birthday Party!!!

His newest hobby, the Bionicles was the theme!!! We shared his birthday this year with other August Blake birthday's.

Pinatas are always a favorite at parties.

And presents, of course, this was a pillow made by Melissa.

Thanking Grandpa for the clothes (one piece being the shirt he is wearing).

He also got some bionicles. One really huge one from David and Mata Nui (a much coveted bionicle) from Uncle Chris and Auntie Esther.

Putting them together. (the next day)

Jeremy, Auntie Esther, and Grandma at the party.

Great fun Swimming!!!

Throwing soda cans in the pool. LOL Naughty boy.

So Much Happening- So Little Time

Yes, So much has been happening. Just having a baby is a whole new 24/7 job let alone all the other stuff you are already doing. This was a sad/happy month for us. Sad in that two very dear people died... both of Cancer. Check out my blog for pictures of my Uncle Dennis Happy in that our new little life, Jeremy is a wonderful gift that we all enjoy.
My Three beautiful children having fun together. Who could ask for more?

He is really been smiling more and more lately... and, yes, I rule. LOL

My little Moses in a basket. :)

Joseph is getting so good at helping me with Jeremy. Sometimes he will hold him for a bit to help me out. Both kids LOVE to hold him.
Jeremy is starting to enjoy his world.
Such a big boy. He weighed almost 15 pounds on 8/6/09.


Joseph just loved Vacation Bible School this year. We did Roman Days theme. He learned so much so quickly. I am so happy with VBS because it seems to help my kids claim our church as their own and brings them to a whole new understanding of who God is for them.

Doing craft. Rebekah likes VBS too.
Although, she would really rather be in the nursery with me. :)

Rebekah carrying the spirit torch for the preschoolers.

Jeremy and I spent the mornings in the nursery with a couple of really sweet teenagers. This is Krista who is fabulous with kids and loved Jeremy.
Jeremy has such a sweet personality.


I can't believe how summer is speeding by. Many of our days have swimming in them either at the community pool for lessons or at Jon's brother's house. Joseph learned how to swim under water this year.

AHHH!! Adorable, even at age "almost 7!"
