Dakota's Birthday- Part 1

Today starts the beginning of Dakota's birthday weekend. Today we had Dakota's Pirate Party. It turned out good... and would have been better had there not been snow for the last 2 days. So a few friends had to cancel. But we did have a good time with Emily, Kate and Reagan.  We had the house all decorated in pirate garb. We had Pizza for lunch, and very cute pirate face cake(thanks to Melani), a treasure hunt and sword fighting. 

I am very frustrated.... in that our Camera continues to act up. I took a lot of pictures of the cake making process, but all the pictures were corrupted. I am so getting a new camera! 

I can't believe my baby is going to be 3 on monday. He is a great kid. So funny. A few things about him as of right now
- He can sing his ABC's.. (see post below)
- He is 3 feet tall
- He loves nursery
- He loves to ask questions
- His waist is 20 inches around and so is his head. 
- He loves fruits
- He has an imaginary friend name kuh kuh kuh kuh ( we don't know where the name came from, and we can't seem to get him to change it)
- He loves to read 
- He knows how to work the Ipod and Computer (this amazed Lars at Whitney's wedding) 
- He is having his first driving lessons on the jeeps 
- He loves to play in the snow, or watch it snow.. or anything that has to do with snow

He is so much fun to be around. We are blessed to have him in our family. He bring joy and happiness to each day. I am grateful the Lord has blessed us and trusts us enough to take care of him. 
There will be more birthday post as the weekend goes on..... It's an all about Dakota weekend! (that's what happens when your birthday falls on a monday!)

Okay I wasn't

I really wasn't going to get sucked into the Twilight craze that is sweeping though.. well everywhere. We were at Blockbuster the other night.. it was in stock and Peter says "you don't want to rent this?" I said.. "sure I guess so"... so we rented it. It sat on our counter for 3 days before we got around to watching it. I put it in Sunday afternoon while the boys were taking a nap. Even when it started I was like.. "I am not going to like this... not my kind of movie" WRONG! boy was I wrong. I LOVED IT! It was just so good! Peter woke up and I was half way though the movie.. he said "you watched it with out me?... you didn't even want to see it" I said "I know but.. oh my gosh it's so good!!!" I couldn't stop watching it... I watched it like 3 times in the next few days.. then I went out and got the book. That is the first time I EVER read a 400 and some odd page book in 2 days. SO GOOD. I am so excited to go see New Moon in Nov. So count me in for the midnight showing. But I still can't believe how much I enjoy the book... I love Bella and Edward! So.. such is my life right now.. totally involved in Bella and Edward. I LOVE IT!!!
