Birthday Boy!

Today is Cameron's 4th birthday! Like everyone says it has gone way too fast and there are so many things that have happened in four years. It was a perfect day with nearly 60 degree temperatures. After such a long snowy winter if felt glorious. We started the morning with Cameron waking up to a decorated hallway upstairs and his favorite breakfast...cinnamon rolls! We then took the kids to the Children's Museum to celebrate and were joined by Jess, Peyton, Lindsay and Wyatt. We had a blast! We also got to see both sets of grandparents today as Matt took did a photo shoot in Rochester. A great family day and so much to be thankful for!

Here are a few of the things that Cameron is up to in his 4th year:

- He is very much into pretending he is a pirate, super hero, knight, baseball player, drummer and either Buzz Lightyear or Woody
- He is going to preschool two half days a week at St. Paul's in Cannon Falls and loves it
- He loves Bible stories and tries to compare how big God is compared to things in his own world
- He loves to eat/drink popcorn, chocolate milk, make his own PBJ sandwiches, any kind of sweets, and his favorite meal is anything with fish and seafood
- He and Emmy get along fairly well but definitely have their moments of frustrating each other
- Favorite movies include Peter Pan and any of the Toy Story movies
- He loves spending time with his cousins and grandparents
- He can be a worrier at times

We are so thankful for you Cameron (our little pirate)! You are truly a gift from God!

Our prayer for you is to:

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9)

Goodnight Moon

We've been reciting Goodnight Moon to Emmy at bedtime for the past year. One day a few months ago she surprised us as she repeated the full story back to us by memory. I've been wanting to record it but it has been tough. Matt finally got her on video saying the story....don't want to forget how it sounds when she says it!

Enjoy watching!
