Birthdays Galore!

filed under: Miscellaneous on January 27, 2009

We have a lot of birthdays to celebrate at the beginning of the year…

My Mom January 2nd

Chad's Mom January 6th

Jakob January 20th

Me February 1st

Colton February 7th

My Dad February 18th

Chad February 29th (leap year baby)

And if I forgot anyone sorry, and if I got the dates wrong SORRY!!  I can barely remember my own name half the time.

If you are celebrating a birthday this month or next, please drop me a line so I can celebrate a bit with you!  And you never know.  There might be a gift involved as well…


I will probably be posting lots of birthday pictures, so try not to get burned out.  If that happens, email me and I will send you some cake for a mini sugar rush to get ya back in the game.  I need you present!  And I need you singing! 

This past weekend we went to Jakobs birthday party at the Children's Museum in St. Paul.  The kids had a BLAST!  It is a really good way to spend some time!


bubbles bubbles bubbles


i love parkers expression


colton, very intent on performing very important scientific experiments in "water world"


and parker likes to help


i always wonder what he's thinking


the kids are dancing in front of this blue screen and watching themselves on a TV… i thought this picture was hilarious as they both seem to be doing the same dance and have the same thrilled expression


i love the joy in his eyes.  he looks pretty comfortable with a microphone in his hand.  maybe he will be an opera singer…  or maybe a preacher…

more likely he'll be an announcer at monster truck shows.


whats that?  did something more interesting then this silly picture happen over there?  gotta go!


this is all the 'cousins' on hubby's side of the family.  they are actually all second cousins, except the middle cutie pie, Jakob.  he is the boys actual first cousin. 

and this concluded 'my family tree 101'. 

there will be a test tomorrow.

Have a blessed day!

    Hey girly! Children’s museums are so much fun. I found one for the boys to go too when I go to Women of Faith conference in March. So you are a February girl too! Mine is Feb. 27th! I’ll be 30. Have a great day my friend!

    Looks like a fun birthday celebration at the children’s museum.

    Hey I loved the pictures. We took the boys to the Children’s Museum when we were down there a few month ago and we all had a blast. Can’t wait to see more birthday pictures. Plus my Birthday was Jan 18th.

    Hey!  Happy Belated Birthday!!!  Sorry I missed it!!  How old are you now… 26?  Did you do anything fun??  Haven’t seen any pics of your boys lately.  You should send some my way!
    God bless!

    But what really has me interested is the cake. Will you really send me some? I’ll sing for it! *grin*

    Thanks for the birthday wish. Yes I am 26 now. Well as for anything fun, I spent my Birth Day in Fargo because Derrick’s Step-Mom had to have a triple bypass. But we were able to have supper with you Mom, Dad, Kurt and Inga so that was a nice surprise. But Derrick, Bobbi, and Barry throw me a surprise Birthday party this past weekend which was a lot of fun.
    As for the pictures I know i have been bad about sending but I do post new ones all the time on facebook. But I will go in and send some out tonight for you 🙂
