Birthday Season

Allison and Cade have their birthday's 6 days apart in August. It's a lot to have huge parties with lots of friends etc especially when they are so close and right at the start of a new school year. I can never seem to think ahead, get organized or have the money for big birthday parties. So this year again, we had a little family party for them. Cade turned 13. I can't believe how old he is getting. His voice is deeper, he's bigger than me, and he needs to shave every one in awhile!! I love this kid, he has a sarcastic sense of humor. He, Daniel, and I were in Sports Authority before school started looking for backpacks for Daniel. Cade said "Mom, look at those guns over there", while he pointed and was flexing his arms and bi-ceps. It was funny, and totally Cade like. Ever since he was little he has always made us laugh with the funny things he comes up with!

Allison turned 6. It is so fun to have a girl! I am so blessed that Heavenly Father blessed our family with her. She brings a fun softer side to this house full of boys! She likes to go to the mall with me (especially the food court!) . We have fun painting our nails and doing "girly things". But on the flip side she also likes to be with her brothers and do things with them too. She loves to be outside and run and play! I'm so thankful I have a daughter!!!
