Visitors & Golden Lake

We went to Golden Lake with our friends Luke & Jeannette.  It was great time to visit and stare at the water.  Little N & M were SO well behaved.  (With Little M as long as he has food he is one happy boy!)  After dinner we went to the playground and Little N went on the slide.  I looked at the water and found this beautiful boat and was just inspired by it!  It was a beautiful day and a fun way to spend the day with friends.

Happy Birthday Mia

We were invited to celebrate Mia's birthday.  It was fun because she's a girl and so frank about everything.  It makes me smile!!  I also loved watching everyone jump on the trampoline.  Little N enjoyed it too!

A picnic, the zoo & pictures galore!

So got to go on a picnic with Kim & Ole (plus her family).....great food and great company.  There was the coolest bridge where we ate but after being on it (AND John jumping on it while I was on it....didn't think it was all that cool anymore!)  Got to go to the zoo.  I think G & S will TOTALLY love it once they are a little bit older.  Little N loved it and this year actually wanted to feed the goats.....what has happened to my little boy.....he is getting so brave and adventurous around animals.  (I love it!)  After the zoo we went back to Kim & Ole's house where I got to take pictures (to my hearts content of Miss S.....I love this girl....she super snugglie and just a love).  Plus got to take pictures of Little N and G playing's fun seeing how Little N interacts with little kids and especially his cousins.  He also go to hold Miss S which was SO funny!  After I got to take my pictures it was time for us to leave to head back home which was sad and good all at the same time.

Meeting Little S and seeing Little G

Little M and I flew back from CT.  It was a little crazy....our flight got cancelled so we actually got a different flight and actually were able to fly into Minneapolis.  It was great because John and Little N were able to pick us up and we could drive down to Rochester so that we could meet little Miss S!  It was so fun to meet her -- she was SO cute and little (I forgot how little babies can be).  We also got to play Little G who has gotten SO big and I can totally see Little M and him playing together.  Little N loved on little Miss S it was great! Thank you Ole & Kim for letting us visit you guys.

Alexi's Bridal Shower

I have been out in CT since Tuesday with only Little M.  It's been fun seeing Little M as an "only child" (he's not really a fan of it). Today we had my sister's bridal shower....we have been planning it for a while and we had one big surprise that we were keeping from Alexi.....I just couldn't get excited for the shower because I knew I would spill the beans.  Alexi was the NOSIEST person when it came to the shower....she wanted to know what was going on and everything.  Fortunately I just finally decided to tell her that everything was going to be horrible and no one was coming.  (It worked she stopped asking)  We told her that she wasn't allowed to come home on Friday night (because we were setting up - also to keep our surprise a well surprise).  Alexi got there right as people were getting there visiting and chatting with people.  It was then when we pulled out the surprise.  Our Tante Jewel had flown in from Minneapolis to help represent the Rogness family for Alexi's shower.  Alexi was SO shocked to see was great! :-)  Alexi had a wonderful shower....lots of people came to shower her with love and she was fortunate that ALL of her bridesmaids were able to come to the shower (she has bridesmaids in North Dakota, California, Massachusetts, New York right now Maine & Connecticut)  We have a picture of almost all the bridesmaids (one had to leave early)! 
We had a short devotional for Alexi....I wrote the speech and was able to read it and say it without bursting into tears.  I was gonna give some snippets of it but I can't find it on my computer and Alexi has my copy of it. 
Mostly it was just talking about everything Alexi and Dave. Their favorite bible verses & what they like about each other. I am so excited that Alexi found her guy.....he is an awesome guy and I can't wait to welcome him into our crazy wonderful family. Dave you do realize that we get a little crazy and silly at times!!

Happy 3rd Birthday Little N

Dear Little N -

Three years ago you were born!  You were born via c-section and I remember being pretty out of it.  You were SO cute and little!  I just fell in love with you and was so happy you were in our lives!  Through these 3 years lots of things have happened we have gone on trips, gotten a little brother and you have grown SO much.  I can't believe how grown up you are -- my little snuggle bug! I love you and can't wait to see how you grow and change this year!
                                                          Love -
                                                             Mommy, Daddy & Little M

Today we went to church and Little N's wish for his birthday was to have EVERYONE at church invited for his birthday party.  So I made him train cookies which we decorated and then brought them to church to share with everyone for his birthday.  It was a very chill day both Little M and N took a nap and we opened up presents.  Our big party is gonna be tomorrow with John's family.

Pre-birthday Lunch

We decided to go to Golden Lake for Little N's 3rd birthday.  It's the day before but with Little N's birthday being on a Sunday we just decided that we would keep it simple and have a fun day at Golden Lake the day before.  Little N loved trying to drive the cars and then Jeff & Lisa came around with their pontoon and invited us to go for a ride.  Little N was in heaven.....but he need to strip down to just his diaper while wearing his life vest!

Playdough Fun

Little N has gotten into playing with play dough.  He loves getting his fingers in the play dough and will be entertained for hours upon hours!  John has told Little N that it's a good thing that Mommy knows how to make play dough otherwise you wouldn't be playing with it.....mostly because it gets left out at times and we don't get it put away quick enough!
