Shecklet #3 turns 9!

Shecklet #3 turns 9!

Scrolling through pictures brings back so many memories of this guy.  He is full of life, laughs, tricks, creativity & determination.  This past year we have seen him grow in so many ways, both academically and physically.  (Every time I turn around, I notice that his pants are above his ankles!)  As a 3rd grader, he tried basketball for the first time and loved it – wants to play again next year.  He enjoys time with his friends (at school and in the neighborhood) and is always up for working on a project or craft.  (Pinterest is one of his favorite places to find new ideas to try.)

Happy birthday Shecklet #3!  We love you so very, very much!

Here’s a few pictures from our family celebration with the new 9 year old tonight. 

Happy 4th birthday to #4

Love this little girl to pieces!


We met Jake for lunch today and ended up eating in the natural light (due to the restaurant’s power going out.) We told the owner our reason for dining there that afternoon and he surprised us with a piece of cheesecake and a candle to celebrate our youngest Shecklet turning 4!

4th bday party for #4

4th bday party for #4

We celebrated Shecklet #4 turning 4 with family and friends, cake and ice cream and temps in the 50s. Unheard of for MN in February. I thought the weather we had for Shecklet #2’s fourth birthday was amazing (when we celebrated outside) but today takes the cake – haha!

Just a few photos from the day.

Happy birthday to me

Happy birthday to me

Another birthday, another year older. But I’m not counting. Just trying to enjoy the day, giving thanks for good health, family and friends to share experiences with, and looking forward to what’s in store for the coming year.

My MIL came up to spend some time with us and we had a chance to be outside enjoying the heavy, wet snow.


Jake donned his party shirt for dinner and cake tonight. Love how his guy loves loves me ❤️
