Getting Ready for Jayshawn's Birthday

We had a fun day today! We went to a pirate-theme birthday party. You will see the progression of our day as you look through the different posts of pictures. Gideon had a swashbuckling time! Jayshawn, the birthday boy, is pictured further down in the photos. He is the one with the darker complexion, holding the sword in front of his face.

His mother, Tiffany, and I had an opportunity to talk today and I think we will be getting together more frequently with the boys for spring break and over the summer vacation. That will definitely be good for Gideon. He needs someone his age to play with. Mommy and Daddy just aren't cutting it lately! :(

Kenny was going to go to an church outreach today for the Hispanic community in Lakewood today, but woke up with an awful ear infection. He went to the emergency care clinic at 8 a.m. and came home with a prescription. He is not looking forward to his airplane trip tomorrow from Newark to St. Louis, Mo. He has a business in Springfield, Mo. of all places this week! That is the town of my alma mater, Evangel College, now University. Maybe he can look up some of my favorite profs while he is there and say hey.

Brooks Turner Sutherland was born this week to Kenny's brother and sister-in-law, Joseph and Meaghan!!!! We are so excited to welcome him into the family! As soon as we get some photos we will make sure to share them with you. Please be praying for Brooks and family though; he is jaundice and has to be under the take-home lights for awhile and that can be hard on all involved.

Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss Day! I am going to celebrate with my class sometime this week. If any of you have some creative ideas for that day, please email me. Thanks so much!

Oh by the way, a few weeks ago I inquired if any of you knew what a rammocka was. My mom took some good guesses with harmonica and something else...I can't quite recall. Well the correct answer is.... a maraca! Cha, cha, cha!

I tried out my black and white option on the camera.

This adult was a very good sport to play with so many pirate-wanna-bes! Hee Hee!
