Oh how we love the summer and our trips to the cottage.
And this week was extra special as this handsome little boy of ours turned four!
Happy birthday Hudson. You make me long to be a better mother and train my sons up to be men who have a fierce love for the Lord. You show me my heart, and at times, in bringing out the worst in me, remind me of what grace and love and mercy are so I can be made better. You are strong and independent and confident, and yet you are so gentle and loving, especially to me, and I can't get enough of you.
Willen helped plan a surprise party for him. He snuck out with Beams (grandma) and decorated the sunroom with balloons and streamers to surprise Hudson in the morning. He made it clear that the "candles according to age" rule was silly, and lit the whole cake up for his little brother. He even drew clues like his Opa does on all the birthday gifts as a special touch.
And how did I occupy myself?
Lets just say I got some much needed rest and enjoyed having my feet up and my husband all week.
No, that's not a beach ball under there. We are so happy to announce that baby number three is arriving in 9 weeks.
Ps. It's another boy!
