 We celebrated Jude's 3rd birthday yesterday! We told him he could choose anything he wanted to do for the day, and he wanted to go sledding. We decided to go to the ski lodge about 10 minutes from our new home for some adventures.
 Jude loved throwing snowballs and going down the small hills. About 30 seconds after this picture was taken, Jude let go and Sadie face planted into the side of the sled.
 Though I miss my friends in the western part of WA, I sure am glad this handsome guy is home every night.
Birthday Boy!
Before we went sledding, we had a family birthday part at home. Jude woke up to gifts, balloons, and a home made birthday cake. He wanted me to sing happy birthday to all his new toys.
Jude really enjoyed opening his new gifts. He is also excited to have a family birthday dinner when we go home to North Carolina in a few weeks.
Jude enjoyed his cake, but he really is excited about his Lightning cake from Miss Brittany!

You have grown into a handsome, sweet, smart, wonderful boy. We are so proud of the huge things you've already done. In the past year, you have said good bye to your bappy. You are now potty trained and sleeping in a big bed. You welcomed your first sibling and we made another move. You continue to learn every day. You know all your letters, numbers 1-20, and are learning how to write your name and phonemes. You continue to love to read and hear stories. You are learning new Bible verses and show your manners. You are so incredibly precious to us. We pray every day that you will know Jesus as your Savior and choose to follow him every day. We love you so very much!
