celebrating Joseph!

Yesterday was Joseph's third birthday! Unfortunately, Clint had to work two shifts yesterday, so the children and I had a little family party to celebrate Joseph. Since I've been pretty sick all week, I didn't really have the energy to put together a big party, so I did the best I could. I think the children had fun! Anything with chocolate cupcakes and presents will make children happy! :) Here's a few pictures of the highlights! (And mom, I included a little video at the end of Joseph playing with the toy you sent. He loves it!)

"It's my birthday!", he exclaimed with delight.

hot dogs and chips (he takes after his mom!)

(here he is as a newborn! :) )

and a big 3 year old!

i took the easy route this year since I've been under the weather all week
(they sure didn't look as fancy as cakes I've done in the past, but the kids sure loved them, and that's all that matters!)

  4. Aren't children precious? Little things are really big things to them! They take delight in the simple things. We can learn so much from them. I hope you're feeling better now.
