sliding party!

it must have been THE COLDEST DAY ON RECORD. seriously. but it was a beautiful day. and the kids sure had fun! thanks everybody, for coming out to jacob's birthday party! :)))

it's a perfect little hill. big enough that you can get a little thrill coming down, and not too big that the kids are pooped by the time they climb back up!

lynda (aka 'rylee's mom'). it was so great having some of the parents stick around! thanks guys!

jacob loved the crazy carpet!




uncle & hannah.

nicole & willow.

i think sam was getting the hang of it!

hi thaniel!

jacob's new friend, angelina!

shawn's boots.


needless to say, joe slept well that night. ha! isn't he a great daddy?!

then it was time to warm up with hot chocolate & birthday cake! thanks, aunt heather, for making jacob a 'LEGO' birthday cake! he LOVED it! :)))

presents! always mayhem, but what kid doesn't love all this??!

love a wood stove! and colourful mittens!

oh, daniel (aka 'rylee's little brother'). you're adorable! (you'll remember him here). it's about time for a birthday shoot, i think! (lyndaaaaa....calllllllll meeeeeeeeee...) ;)

such a fun afternoon!!! thanks, everyone!!!

mmmm...birthday cake...with M&Ms on top...

well, there was no shortage of festivities last week for jacob's birthday... the day OF his birthday, he requested lasagna for his birthday supper. so mama did that - only, didn't get any pictures of it to post. :( then, we didn't have time to bake him a cake so we said we'd do it the next night. tuesday night, joe & the kids baked a cake and frosted it and piled a whole bunch of peanut butter M&Ms on it (jacob's fave!) and we sang 'happy birthday' to him. it was dee-lish. :) (can't believe my firstborn is 7. seriously. where does time go?!)

love this one. if only for the smoke in robyn's face. i think it's cool...

seriously. (love that word, for some reason. i say it even in my sleep). how yummy does that look??!
