A double celebration

Monday, September 26, 2011

We had a party-weekend at our house! Fun, fun, fun!
(Except the part where Rosemary ate about a cup-and-a-half of m-n-m's and we had to take her to the doggy E.R. in the middle of the night. That part wasn't so fun.)

But she's okay now, so back to the fun parts...
First of all, my fabulous hubby turned 41.
Wow! I love this guy!

We started out the celebration with presents and hugs.

Then, after church my nephew, Cole, came to our house. He and David share the same birthday, but we don't usually get to celebrate with Cole, so this year was extra-special. The kids all adore Cole and he's so kind to them.

Our friends, David and Bryan, came over, as well, and we all played street hockey.
(Okay, Grace and I didn't play, but somebody had to take picutres and provide snacks.)

After hockey and snacks, we enjoyed a rousing game of charades. Can you believe that this was the first time that Cole has ever played charades?! 

After dinner, we sat outside and roasted marshmallows.

S'mores were a hit.

Happy Birthday, David and Cole!
We love you both so much!

Lily wrote a poem in honor of David's birthday, so I'll end with this:

A Poem for Dad
By, Lily  
I’m sure I have the best dad of all.
If you didn’t know, He likes to play ball.
He loves God with all his heart, soul and mind,
A better father I don’t think you could find!
When I feel sad,
he makes me feel glad.
He loves nature, and I’m sure it loves him!
He’s so gentle with God’s creatures. Sin is just not for him!
Maple and Rosy, they love daddy too.
Everybody takes him as a father, they do!
If you cannot see, I love my daddy.
God sure had a plan, when he gave him to our family!
