Completed bows

Well I completed all my bows and I loved how they turned out. Not one single bow looks like the other, which I think totally shows they are hand made. I of course will get better at making them as I go.. but I am thrilled at how they turned out. And just look how cute she looks in them. This was an attempt to pull all of her front hair back in the bow, but mostly she is wearing them with her bangs swept to the side as the last picture shows.

Bow time

Well I have finally found a great website that taught me how to make bows and I completed my first one this morning. Thanks Rikki for letting me borrow your glue gun. I now just have these other colors to do and Sydney will be adorned for a while at least. Ooo the website is www.girlythingsbows.com . Enjoy and happy bow making...I will post the final bows in all colors as soon as I am done.

Take me out to the ball game

Last Thursday Stefan's work sponsored a night at the Grasshoppers game. We took Daniel last year and this year we knew we needed to brave the late game and take Sydney as well. We had fun. We got there at 6:15 even though the game did not start until 7pm, but we knew we would have to leave by 8pm. We just walked around and ate some good food. As you can see below Sydney did not get enough as she was eating the ticket the whole game, hands free. We had great seats on the third base line and Daniel had a blast and came home with a little stick bat and ball. We really need to do this again.

Silly Sydney

Here is a silly picture of Sydney in the tub the other night. She loves bath time and likes me to wash her hair. This was my attempt at pig tails.

PaPa Peter's visit

We had a great time for Daniel's birthday party and with PaPa Peter. Here is a cute picture from that weekend.

Daniel Turns 4-happy Birthday Daniel

June 10, 2009----Just 4 years ago Daniel was born. What an adventure we have been on. More blessing than I can count, more laughs than I can remember, more good times than bad times, more love than I can measure, what joy it is to be a mother of a loving son. It has not always been easy, but day by day we learn together. I am so thankful that God has let me have you for this period of time to raise you up in HIS word and guide you in HIS ways. I am so thankful we have a strong family bond. We have seen you this last year become a great big brother and can't wait to see what the next years bring. We love you more than you know.
A Note from Dad: The last four years have been the best in my life. Since you were born and even more now, I have developed an indescribable love for you that words do not convey. You are truly a blessing from God (not to mention a handful at times :)) You have grown up so fast - too fast. I love you and am SO proud of the boy you have become.

Your biggest fan,

Look how you have grow!
