Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!

The big 6.  Being six makes you feel big for sure, I can tell.  You've been waiting to be six for a long time and now you have arrived (toothless and all)!
It was a good day and you thoroughly enjoyed yourself on your birthday.  Heart pancakes for breakfast, an impromptu trip to the zoo, fun presents and brownies to round out the day.
All 7 kids in one photo--yay! (Plus the head of a crane peeking over the bench...bonus!)
Liz declared the lions as her favorite.  Unfortunately, they don't show up in this photo.

 Happy Birthday to my sweet girl!  We love you and are so thankful to have your sweet smile as a part of our family!

Jacob's 1st Communion

Jacob made his 1st Holy Communion yesterday.
My little "shybug" was so excited and had no reservations about receiving Our Lord for the first time.
It was a beautiful Mass and a truly joyful day! 

Jacob with Grandma and Grandpa. 
Jacob with Nana. 
With his Godparents. 

Congratulations, Jacob!
We are so proud of you!

3 months.

Happy 3 months to our baby Carrie.
She has her first cold but still enjoyed some time outside last night at sunset.
