More Catching Up

Spring Break 2011. The kids were so happy to get a break from school. Although the weather did not cooperate and we even had snow! We spent most of our Spring Break inside.
Making messes.

And memories.

We spent one day at the Creation Museum. The kids (and me)

absolutely loved it!

No, Caleb is not standing on his tiptoes. That's how tall he is!

We saw Noah's Ark

and dinosaurs

and even a Zonkey!

Have I mentioned how much I love Craig and his List? The kids have been saving their Christmas $ for a trampoline. The week of their Spring Break I found this one on craigslist. They have barely left it alone to eat and sleep. The first morning the girls were out there jumping before breakfast and you can see the frost on it! brrrr!

So much fun!

Um...yeah, that's me. I like it too :)

Last week Caleb turned 11.
Here he's blowing out his candles on the cake Grammy made him.

And opening his gifts from Grandpa & Grandma.

He is quiet but not shy. He is like a walking encyclopedia with random facts about other countries, history, or animals. He loves Bible stories.

He loves to hunt, loves to snowboard, and loves his friends. He is loyal and honest and friendly. He is laid back and easy-going. He eats more than our whole family combined!

He usually does not like to be the center of attention. He loves math. And of course he loves video games. I am so thankful that God blessed us with Caleb, and for the priveledge to be his Mom!

We hope you had a Happy Birthday, Caleb! And Carl and Janie, If I am correct you celebrated another anniversary recently. If so, Happy Anniversary! We love you all; you're a very special family. We're also glad that y'all are serving the Lord!
