Arrrr Matey!! Emerson be seven!

Emerson celebrated his seventh in high pirate fashion. He had 10 of his best scallywags over for a sleep over. This is a lovely age for sleep overs as they are still young enough not to cause too much mischief. They were all asleep by 11 PM and a few of them tucked themselves in by 9:30. They had a treasure hunt and pizza dinner and then watched the Goonies in their sleeping bags. The next morning we made eggs and bacon and then it was on to the water balloon fight. They had a great time and we couldn't be more proud of our darling seven year old. We love you, Em!
Shiver me timbers!!

Daddy and Sissy getting into the spirit!

Dear Heather-

Ken pointed me toward your blog and I am so tickled for you. Your family is absolutely gorgeous. I could not be happier that you and your husband have been blessed with four beautiful kiddos! JOLLY!

Take care...your high school classmate...Jen Holland

Heather,

I have just finished reading your blog. What a wonderful family!!
We are just starting our Guatemalan journey and reading your blog has made me feel more secure that soon we will be with our baby and also, I now would really consider going there to foster our precious bundle. What a great life experience for your three older ones.

Thank you for sharing.
