isaiah's baptism...

on sunday august 22nd, 2o10 isaiah was baptized
seth and pastor chris baptized him
seth prayed for him and he said he was super emotional
i was too
it is so amazing watching your baby who you love
make this choice on their own
to make a public profession of their faith and love for jesus christ
it was a great moment

happy 6th birthday smooshie!!....

**happy birthday my shweet shweet smoosh** i can' t believe it has been 6 years since our last baby was born.
you have been such a blessing to all of our lives.
for your 6th birthday i am going to write 6 things that we love about our smooshie.
1. you are still and will always be " smooshie". you have turned into your nickname. so many people don't ever even call you by your real name. we love it. i wonder how much longer it will last :)
2. you are so funny!! you love to make people laugh and you love being the class clown.
3. you have what we like to call "smooshie reasons" it's kind of your own set of rules that you make along the way in life (usually for your benefit). they are hysterical.
4. you adore your brothers, but even though you are the youngest you don't let them boss you around. alot of times you are the boss.
5. you still love to cuddle. especially when you wake up in the morning. one of my favorite things ever with you these past 6 years has been cuddling you with your crazy hair every.single.morning!
6. you run, jump, hop, or skip every where you go. i think you need to make a "smooshie workout and diet" video and we would all be skinny :) you move all the time, and snack all day. i get tired just watching you . :)
we love you soo much!!
happy birthday!!!!

hume lake..

one of our favorite places ever is hume lake.
every summer for the past 5 years our dear friends have graciously
offered us an invite to their cabin.
this year we drove up on tj's bday.
he wasn't too thrilled about spending 5 hours of his
bday in the car but when we got their krisitin
had made him a cake and he was all smiles.
our first day there the kids swam out to the jumping rock.

one day isaiah bought a canvas and painted by the lake.
he's so artsy :)

we had smore's by the fire with friends

ofcourse, we had some pool time

this was the first year that zas was old enough
to do 'the blob'....ummmm..he won't be doing that
again. look how hight he got.
and when he landed it was right on his stomach :(

he really enjoyed the swing.
i think he'll stick to that :)
