A Special Birthday and Unscripted, Imaginary Play WITH...railroad signs.

Today is a VERY special day at our house! Mr. Snug has turned 8 years old today! He is extremely excited for a few really fun things coming up! 1. Going to Red Robin for his birthday dinner. 2. Starting swimming lessons this weekend. (Late to be learning how to swim, I know.) :0) 3. And last but not least, getting baptized soon! We are super proud of him and all he's learned and accomplished in his life! He is a really great kiddo' and fits perfectly into our family!

We love you oodles, Snug-a-Bug! We are excited for all of the learning and growth ahead of you and are proud of the good boy you are becoming! We know that you will continue to be a force for good in the world! Happy Birthday Buddy! We hope your wishes comes true!

Yep...that's right folks. I said railroad signs! Luv is playing right now. She is sitting on the floor, here in the loft and using a couple of her brother's railroad signs from his train set, as people. She's built a block tower and seems to be acting out a story involving a prince and a princess! "Hop down from the tower, into the wagon to your prince!", she says. And then...they smooch! When I raised my eyebrows at her as she looked my way, she said "Mom! They JUST got married!" "Okay, I am SO glad!" I said with a smile. I LOVE that she understands the very important truth and importance of marriage and incorporates it into her play! She makes me smile! :0)


  1. Very cool!! Why is it that I can never get birthday correct? So sorry! Happy Birthday from Uncle Dan, Aunt Christy, and Kyler, Megan, Aubree, and Jake. (and of course Tazzy ;-)

    Wish we could be there for the baptism. Hope you have a great day.

  2. Thanks, Christy! His baptism won't be until July I guess, because that's the next stake day. I gotta' get with the program about this stuff, because back in the day, my baptism was all by itself! :0)

  3. Yep, it's sort of crazy getting it in order. Are you inviting people? Or are you keeping it small and simple? Not that we can come, but who knows ;-)

  4. I have NO clue at this point! I wish someone from my ward would let me know how this is all supposed to go.
