I cannot believe he is 12, where did the time go?!?!? I hear everyday how much he looks like a mini Eric and I have to agree. He has now passed the Sacrament 2 times and collected Fast Offerings; he is a pro! I am excited to see what the next 12 years will bring!
We celebrated Arhcer's 9th Birthday yesterday. He chose to have McDonald's for breakfast (Ethan bought it for him!). He came home from school to a balloon boquet and a Happy Birthday banner that Ryder and I set up for him. Eric and I gave him a Kindle and took everyone to Wingers (Archer's choice). Archer was very adimant that he have a mint chocolate chip ice cream birthday cake so that is what he got! It was a great day!
Life is crazy! I thought I would share a few of my favorite pictures from my phone.
This next one is not my favorite but I need to share it.
She fell down the day after Thanksgiving and since she has no reflexes she landed on her face. She was unconscious for a minute or so and we thought maybe she knocked out some teeth but thankfully she did not. Her condition has deteriorated rapidly over the past 4 months or so. I always knew she would get worse with time and I knew it would be hard for our family..but this disease is brutal.
Eric and I have been working our tails off around the house. Some things needed to be done and some things we updated just because we wanted to. Not everything we have been working on is finished yet but I'll give you a sneek peak at our hard work.
I had almost the whole inside of the house painted, we put new flooring in (LOVE IT!!), painted all of the trim high gloss white, this next one Eric is not too sure about but I am digging it big time.. painted the interior doors high gloss black. Eric ripped out a little wall that sepparated our kitchen/dining room and it made the space so much bigger! Ethan's room was just a bit too big so Eric also ripped out a wall there and built another one.
I am so impressed with my hubby, he is so talented and is able to fix/build almost anything.
Gotta go, I'm sure there is something around here I'm supposed to be painting right now.
p.s. I can't find the spellcheck thing and I'm sure that I've misspelled many words so deal with it.
