3-21 World Down syndrome Day!!

Today is World Down syndrome Day, 3-21.  It represents Trisomy 21, chromosome 21 has 3 instead of 2.  In our world, it is a beautiful day.  We get to honor our little girl.  She is fiesty, cuddly, smart, funny,  I could go on and on.  We always do a little celebration in her honor.  Always a cake, balloons and a small gift.   Just an ordinary day made special just for her.  (Excuse the was taken on my iphone and the color setting was not correct.)

We love you Emma, our little peanut!!

A beautiful day!!

It was a beautiful day in the northland, despite the fact that we had 9" of snow.  Now don't get me wrong, I am so over winter.  The sad fact is we still have at least another month of this!!!  I heard last night on the news that we are 14" above the average for this time of year.  YIKES.   Could be some flooding this spring.  You have to admit the snow is pretty hanging on the trees.  I think it will be on them for a few more days.  Temps are very chilly (again!) and will be for at least the next week.

This picture was taken out from my front window.  Don't mind the glare that looks like a snowman.  (pretty neat though)  Just look at all that snow.  Ugh........  I can't remember the last time I have seen this much snow.  There is no way the kids could walk through it.  

 The next few pics are from Evan's golden birthday.  (sorry these shots are from my IPhone)

The Birthday boy!

Just a few gold decorations.  He loved it and that is all that matters.
