Surprise Party for Dan's 30th Birthday!
Boy was Dan surprised! "Chill out Mel!!"....if you were there, you know exactly what that's all about! There were over 50 people in attendance from as far as Texas, Florida and Michigan! Dude, I married one special guy! In all seriousness, we are so thankful to God for the life He has given Dan. My heart is full when I see Him lead our family and love on us. Thank you Heavenly Father for abundantly and graciously providing!
Noise makers and hats compliments of Monica who knew that Dan wanted these for his 30th birthday party.

Mia hogging Nico ;O)
Sen's turn...
Baby Anna Grace...such a sweetie!!
Texas guest...sorry Nick, I couldn't help posting such a flattering picture.

THANK YOU everyone for coming and making Dan's 30th memorable!!!!
Christmas at Nana and Papa's
Apparently the family company was so distracting and lovely that the only pics that I thought to take were of Lynnette's homemade BEAUTIFUL cake pops.
Christmas at Grandpa and Grandma Luiting's

Olympic Torch Relay in St. Thomas

See the flame?
We met A. Kara there since the flame was lit right by her work.

Opening Presents!

Real shovels to help Daddy work!
Skating in Port Stanley
Every other Thursday the homeschoolers skate in Port Stanley. The kids love it...Ksena on her boots, Esmé on Aunt Shaylynn's lap (who has no 'skaters'), and Mia on her garage-sale-steal skates.

Oh, the skates are off-but she's on the ice!
