Aaron's 2nd birthday photo shoot-

Today Aaron had his 2nd birthday check-up at the doctors. He was very curious about what they were doing to him. He couldn't quite figure out why he had to lay on a table and have the doctor put this weird looking thing on his chest to listen to his heart. Aaron had to get one shot today and the whole time he was just looking at the nurse and wondering what she was doing. He didn't cry or squirm or anything. What a little man!

Anyway, when I post this it will be just about the exact moment that he will turn two. He was born at about 3:45 pm.

Happy Birthday Aaron and Sara!!!!

Other big happenings at our house occurred yesterday. This is one of the reasons that I haven't posted recently. I was getting ready for the "Tractor Guy". Mike found this guy with a tractor for hire.

He came yesterday and moved dirt, plowed down "the jungle", leveled the yard, and tilled.
You probably can't tell from these pictures, but we have a totally different yard now.

He was here for almost six hours and it makes me think about how much work we won't have to do because we had this guy come. There is no way we would have ever been able to move all that dirt and get everything ready for a sprinkler system to be put in so soon.

He even let Mike try out his tractor. I don't know if you can see it in this picture, but Mike has a HUGE grin on his face. You'd think he was a kid in a candy store.

Anyway, now all we need to do to get a yard is to rake, pull weeds daily, rake, dig trenches, pour a patio, pull some more weeds, plant grass, and about a million other little things. At least I can say that at this moment, Our yard is weed free!!! Hurray!!!!

I'm sure that won't last long though. Such is the curse of all mankind.

Well, I must go. Today I still need to cook some dinner, wrap some gifts, do some laundry, bathe some kids, and retype the entire 8-page Primary Program, changing some of the parts and assigning the rest. There are only 160 parts. It shouldn't take me more that 5-6 hours (you know, since I have so many "helpers" running around here). Maybe I can even get some sleep eventually.

Side Note to Isaac and Sara-

We are praying for you especially hard and long today. And not just because it's Sara's birthday and she is getting so old. We hope you get your biggest birthday wish fulfilled! We Love You!!!!!
