Yippe Kay Yeah! It's My Son's 4th Birthday!

"Wanted" signs of the cowboy!
The cowboy boot cake

These were the goody bags. They had a red money sign glued on them and a sheriff's badge with the child's name written on it.

The campfire Daddy built and the mini western town

Even the grownups enjoyed roasting hotdogs.

My cowboy and cowgirl!

Well, we had a rodeo roundup at our house today and had a blast. We roasted hot dogs over a campfire and enjoyed a mini western town out of cardboard boxes.We were blessed to have good friends and good fellowship. Everyone had a great time- especially the birthday boy. I still can't believe we have a four year old. My how time flies!

And 1 more makes 5......

The newest Simpson will arrive sometime in December. So, before we know it we will be a family of five. Crazy!!

Family Day at the Lake

We are so lucky to be surrounded with beautiful lakes. We took the family to the lake today. It had a great sandy beach, playground, picnic tables, etc... The kids had a great time swimming in the lake. We packed a lunch and enjoyed a really fun afternoon together. We have 2 fish in our family that are having more fun swimming every chance they get!

Verse of the Week

Our verse this week is Luke 2:9-11. "An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a SAvior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
