Macy & Mariah are 3!

Happy Birthday pancakes for breakfast!  (Do you like Mariah's bedhead?)
 The biggest excitement of their birthday was getting a PINK princess cake.  Here is my attempt at a princess cake.  It doesn't even come close to some I've seen, but it made my girls happy!
 Happy Birthday to my two princesses!  *excuse the blurriness of the iphone photo:(

I felt like this birthday was such a milestone!  We are having so much fun with our growing girls and I am feeling so blessed with 4 healthy children!  I pray (and you can too) for wisdom raising these blessings God has given me!

The Greatest Generation

Just finished talking with an longtime customer from Farmington IL. He was born in 1926, served his country in the Pacific theater during WWII, was faithfully married to his childhood sweetheart for 63 years, and has lived on the same farmstead since 1949. Wow, thank you to the "greatest generation" for what you did for our country, and for your example to us that come after. There is much we can learn as a nation from your lifestyle, work ethic, and attitude!

February 2012 Grimm family update

A quick photo update of our life the last few weeks.

Mariah with some "curling iron curls". I had so much fun doing this.

My 3 boys post haircuts.

We spent 3 days in northern Wisconsin with Mike's parents. Thanks to Joyce and Barry Kloter for taking such good care of the kids while we were gone! We spent 2 days snowmobiling and cross country skiing. 1/2 way through the cross country trails, there was a "rest stop" that had firewood, places to sit, etc. It was fun spending quality time with mom and dad Grimm in the peace and tranquility of the northwoods.

Mike being Mike!

Do you think the kids are ready for warm weather? A few days ago, they found the "swimming suit" drawer. How fun!

Mariah is a little like Buzz. She somehow finds ways to get herself in trouble without even trying. This video is classic!

Hope you all have a blessed March!
