Amazing Race

Alida had her birthday party yesterday.  Although most friends were on holidays...she had her best friend there and another good friend.  The girls had a wonderful time.  Alida had an Amazing Race Birthday with 6 stations that took about 2 hours.  Two of them were apple bobbing and donut eating, which was at home.  It worked well, as Noah was napping at  the time.  Kiah helped run the easy roller racing station, and brain teasers.  Dad took care of the snyper and obstacle course.

On Another note..Kevin took the kids to the ravine across the street from out house, and it seems the mosqituos were particularly bad.  Noah swelled up on his eye, cheek and forearms.    He is a rocky/popeye combination

16 years ago today.....

We married after knowing each other, 7 months.  We just knew.  We were opposites in so many ways, but also shared so many beliefs and values. 
We have gone through the joys and griefs together.  Our lives have not always been "perfect" but, God has held us up, and we have grown stronger in our love for one another.  Kevin, is a man of great integrity and love for his family.
Happy Sweet 16th Anniversary!!!

My baby girl turned six today.  The years have flown by.  Anneke is a great kid, with a really neat personality.  We sure enjoy her.
