Caution...Party in Progress!!!

Hard Hats Required!!
Lawson had a fun three year old birthday party. He had three friends over to celebrate for a construction party. The theme was quite fitting due to the construction we have going on with our house. The boys played games, ate lunch and cake, and opened presents. I think they all had a lot of fun.

Edible Excavator Cake (no baking required!)

Demolition Game (how many boxes can you knock over with the recking ball?)

Isaiah and Elliott

Thanks for coming boys and for the presents!!

Lawson is 3!

Happy Birthday, Lawson! We are so thankful for you and the three years we have had with you. So many things make you special, but I think what has stood out mostly to your dad and I lately is that you are the only boy that God chose to bless us with. We are excited for the years to come watching you grow. We are nervous about the responsibility we have to help you become a man of God, but we are thankful for that challenge.
This is a big year for you with lots of changes: no more pacies, no more diapers, a new big boy bed, a new house, and a new baby sister!!! Bless your heart! You have a lot to deal with, but you will do great overcoming those challenges.
We love you!!

Twinkle Toes

Sara Grace's ballet class had their Christmas ballet performance. The class was told to choose something Christmasy to wear. This is what Sara Grace chose to wear. She had a lot of fun.

football star!

Lawson is super proud to display one of his birthday gifts from his Nana and Poppie. He loves his helmet and outfit. Bronson wishes it was Greenbay, but I think that Greenbay paraphernalia is pretty hard to come by in Indiana.

Christmas Tree Lighting and Carriage Ride

We went to the Upland Train Depot for the annual Christmas tree lighting celebration. The kids had a blast, despite the cold weather. We rode on a carriage ride, sang Christmas carols and toured the train caboose. Sara Grace and Lawson also had the opportunity to hang an ornament on the Christmas tree. In order to do so, they were lifted up in the air by a crane/bucket thing. They loved it. It was a fun time.

Lawson loved the caboose tour.

House Update

Our house is coming along. It has been a lot of fun to see the progression. There is an Amish crew that has done the work so far and they are amazing workers. Here are some shots thus far.

New Additons to our Family

Nana and Poppie (Bronson's parents) were here visiting last week during Thanksgiving. While they were here they noticed that we had a fish swimming in one of our plastic bowls, living on saltine crackers. Bronson's dad loves fish and felt that this was not the greatest environment for this poor little fish. So, he went to Walmart and came home with an amazing home for our fish as well as 2 fish friends. Sara Grace and Lawson are thrilled to have these new additions as well as the cool new fish tank. Thanks Poppie!!
