Otto is 2

I had a few ideas for a birthday party for Otto but I just couldn't settle on any of them. I was trying to decide what he would like best and all I could think of was ho's (at the house of jansen donut holes are just called ho's). So I decided to have a Donut Party...unofficially the Ho's & Milk party. We cleared out all the living furniture and replaced it with slides and other outdoor toys. Kid parties are chaos so we just orchestrated the chaos.
I think the kiddos had fun, everyone likes donuts, right? We had mimosas and bloody mary's for the adults to ease the stress of birthday party chaos...everyone likes to drink on Saturday mornings, right?

Otto is 2! We are so proud of our middle child, he brings so much joy and life to our family. Each kid has their own personality and he definitely has his own thing going on. I love spending my day with this kid and watching him grow and learn. His favorite movie is Cars and he loves to play with thomas the train, geotrax and cars (from the Cars movie). He is also full of surprises, not too long ago he was refusing to take a nap, so to distract Gigi he said I count and proceeded to count to 13...I've never heard him count past 3. At 2 years old he can count to 13, say his ABC's, sing Twinkle Twinkle, play hard with his brothers and attempt to do and say everything Ollie's does. I'm looking forward to all the wonderful surprises Otto has ahead.

A Prayer for August

May you be filled with Peace, Patience, Power, & Purpose; a Pleasure to all.

for Jesus said:
"Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called the Children of God" Matthew 5:9

This is the prayer my MIL has for August. She has a special prayer and scripture for each of the boys. Each prayer is unique and I anticipated her prayer the moment I knew I was pregnant. If you know my MIL you know she is a sweet, Godly woman...I often joke she is God's favorite.

I'm thankful Ollie, Otto & August have Godly grandparents and great-grandparents who pray for them daily.
