As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Happy Birthday Charlotte!!!!    (Part 1)
Let the birthday festivities begin!  It's hard to believe that Charlotte is almost two.  Where did the time go?  In some ways, it feels like she's always been a part of our family, and in others, it seems like it was just yesterday!

Grandma and Grandpa came over to help her celebrate turning two.
She had seen the cupcakes all day long and begged and whined for one at every turn.

 And while all of us were in the living room,  she helped herself to a bit of frosting!
 Grandpa and Sarah played some Just Dance.

 We ate some pizza.  See allllll this yummy goodness???
 Yeah, this was my dinner...good stuff.  Ahhhhh the life of a weight watcher.
 Then it was time for cake.
 And presents!
 Her new riding toy...
 and her lego table
 and here you have Charlotte demonstrating how to sit on your riding toy and play duplos, thereby guaranteeing that no one else would play with either. ('cause they're miiiiiiiinnnnnnneeeee!)
 Other random pictures...

 More to come on Tuesdsay...her real birthday!!!!


  1. Sneaky little girl. But as we all know the frosting is the best part.

  2. Happy birthday to Charlotte! My baby is turning 2 on Wednesday. How fast the time flies indeed!

  3. Good for Grandpa - doesn't look a bit out of breath!

  4. Ok, the "you can't get this in the north" shirt is GREAT! I love it! And I love the fact that Charlotte taste-tested the cupcakes for everybody ;)

    Happy Birthday, Charlotte :)
