Theodore: 5 Years Old


Dear little boy,

You are FIVE years old! A whole hand!! You have been so excited about your birthday this year.  Counting down the days.  We love to see your excitement!!

This year has been a rough one for you, behaviorally.  Still learning boundaries and that mom and dad's no means no.  But you are slowly getting better.  Praying for patience all around.

You will do absolutely anything for your sister.  We LOVE seeing this kiddo.
We love you so much bubba and are proud of you!

You weigh 34 lbs and are 40.75 in tall

Currently in size 5t tops and 4t pants.  Size 11/12 shoes (same size as sis!).

Your favorite foods are cheese, cheese and did I say, cheese?  Also anything sweet, veggie straws, chicken nuggets, waffle fries and fruit.  Still a pretty picky eater.

Easter 2017


I know Easter was last week, but better late than never, right?

Happy Easter!  We had a great Easter weekend celebrating Christ's resurrection.  Started off with our Maundy Thursday service remembering Christ's death on the cross.  That morning, I went to Madelyn's school to eat lunch with her.  As I was about to leave, her teacher caught me.  She told me Madelyn has been telling all her classmates about Easter and why we should celebrate.  That she goes into detail about Him dying on the cross for us and raising from the dead 3 days later.  If any of the kids ever bring up Easter or anything having to do with Christianity or church, then Madelyn's teacher directs the kid to Madelyn and she talks to the student.  Her teacher can't say anything about it in school, but my girl sure can and it makes Tim and me so proud.

Friday, Madelyn and I went with our friends Nova and Abbie to get our nails done.  She wanted to use some of her birthday money to get pampered.  I'm okay with that!

Saturday morning, we had a choir rehearsal then sang at a nursing home close to the church.  The kids were able to come with us to the nursing home then they had lunch for friends and family along with an egg hunt.  A fun day!

Sunday, Tim headed out before dawn for the sunrise service, then the kids and I headed out about an hour later for the other services.  After church we went to our friends house for lunch and another egg hunt.
