a few random thoughts

Well our day at the Kupferer house is off to an unusual start. It is 7:57am and the boys are both still asleep.
Last night was the last night of a revival that we had at Little Prairie. Seeing as I was not involved in the planning or the teaching and had no responsibilities other than listening, I think I would be up for a few more nights. It was refreshing and challenging to have more times for corporate worship than Sunday mornings.
I just read back over the last few posts of our blog and also Mike's ministry blog (reflections) and I just wanted to publicly thank Mike for all that he does to keep up on informing you about our lives and ministry. Thank you, Mike. It does not go unnoticed.

Happy Birthday Nathan!

Today is the start of year #3.

Let's look back at years #1 & 2

Year #0. We had no idea what would come, but we were thrilled to welcome the little guy into the world.

Year #1: Clean. What a great year. Nathan really enjoyed his party, too.

Year #1: Messy. It took him a little while, but he got the hang of the birthday cake.

Year #2. A great day with friends in our old house in GA. Look how big he looked.

Year #3. Having fun at the park during his party.

3rd Birthday Party

Today is Nathan's party. He is pretty excited about it. Its a great day outside (in the 70's, with no clouds) so we're gonna have the party down by the pond.

Aunt Kim got in town last night, so she can enjoy the great party, too. :)

We'll put up pics and maybe video in the next few days. Until then, just imagine how much fun we're having.

Photo Friday: chewing gum

Thought you might enjoy some pictures from Nathan's first exposure to chewing gum. He chewed each piece for a minute or so, then put it on the plate to get the next piece. He doesn't quite have the concept down yet, but that's ok. :)

Wes' new bed

Wes got a new bed this week. His crib was converted into a "transitional" bed. Needless to say, he loves it. Now he and Nathan want to play more together in their room. He does so well, too.

Here are two pics of it.

Another week in pictures

Here are two pictures from the Kids Carnival last Saturday. It was cold outside, but a lot of fun. This is the train ride they had. Nathan busted his lip in the moonwalk, but was asking to get back in once we cleaned him up.

One of the things both boys like to do each night is help to feed the dogs. Here is what they do when we have to open a new bag of dog food.

Family Week #4

All 3 grandkids.

Nathan got to have 2 birthday parties this week and its not even his birthday yet. This is just practice for the real party in a few weeks.

Allison was kind enough to read to Wes.

This has to be my favorite picture from the whole week. As Amy said "He's gonna hate us for this one." Yeah, but now its great and when graduation comes around - this one will make its way back out.

Family Week #3

Lots of fun in Fairfield today. Wal-mart will never be the same. Our lunch was good - Wendy's makes some good food. (all I have to say about Wendy's is that the floor under our table will def. need cleaned before other people sit there)

We had an Easter egg hunt tonight. It was fun.

We had a marching band perform in the living room, too. There might be a video up with that footage later.

Family Week #2

This is the cookie Nathan made for his birthday. Even though his birthday is not until the 23rd. He did a great job helping make it. Thanks Aunt Marti!

Becca opening up a gift. It has been great to see her and the boys playing together.

Wes' first time to sleep on his "big boy" bed. We don't think he's going to want to go back to the crib now. He is not quite "stuck" to his bed, yet. He's already walked out of the room a couple times over the last few days. But he will go right back in and lay back down without a fight. So overall, he's doing well.

Two silly boys just having a good time.

Tomorrow we take a trip to Fairfield. :)
