Yum! Winnie the Pooh cake!

April celebrates her birthday, too!

This past Saturday we celebrated Elsiana's 2nd birthday with our families and friends. We were blessed to have them surround us to praise God for two wonderful years with our Princess. Our dear friend April Tiedtke shares her birthday with Elsiana as well. Elsi walked around all day on Monday (her actual birthday) singing, "Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you." It was the cutest thing! Lord, we praise and thank you for the countless blessings you have bestowed on our family. You are amazing, God!

Whew! It's been a while since my last post. We were making the most of the last few days of summer:). Over Labor Day weekend, we had Steve's brother, and his family up to the cabin. We were happy to have Pete, Felicia, Sarah and Ryan for the weekend. The weather couldn't have been any better! Sunny, low humidity and 80's all three days! We enjoyed great time out on the water and by the campfire. Both kids and adults had a blast!
