Ava came out and showed us what she'd been doing with some Frozen lip gloss she got for Christmas and told us, "It's called yispick!"

Stitch free!

My actual birthday

So on my actual birthday, we went to the Mall of America and met Matt's parents who took us to the Rainforest Cafe.  We had never been there together before, and it was so much fun.  Lots of fish and animals (fake) who moved and made noises and there was a thunderstorm every 20 minutes.  Really was fun!  So then Matt and I shopped while his parents took the kids on rides and to play with Legos.  Very nice to have some kid free time, and they probably felt the same way!  Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa!  It was a special birthday, and I am so blessed.  So much more than I deserve, but I'm not complaining!  Thank you, dear family and friends, for your love and encouragement and gifts of time and expense.  Love you all!

Jock the Hero Dog

My sister Rebekah told me to have Jack watch a movie with a name we were ok with since he seemed to keep picking names of movie dogs.  Well after the kids picked the name Jock, our friends gave us this movie.  Guess we picked the right name!  Perfect!

Ninja Warfare

Jack got 3 stitches this week while playing ninja with a friend.  He came through it like a trooper.
