Josh's ordination was on April 11th 2o1o after we had the birthday party at our house. It was an extremely special occasion. Pastor Tim Neptune preached a sermon to the pastor's and had a few other pastor's from the ordination council speak as well. Then, each man had to share his testimony to the congregation and Josh brought me and everyone else to tears when he addressed me at the very end of his. Then all ordained pastor's prayed over the men:for their families, calling and their ministry. Then Pastor Neptune preached and then the men were presented their certificates and the wives flowers. There was a party afterwards at the church where the men got a concordance of every book of the Bible and the wives got a book as well. I didn't take a ton of pictures bc we had a photographer there and all the pictures as well as the service are on FBC Marco's website. We also had other family member's attend such as Josh's mom, G-G and sister (jennifer) who are not pictured on this blog but super grateful they were there in love and support!

Daddy and Kaylee on April 10th-their birthday! After an amazing dinner
The day started off by going to church then a baptism followed. Then headed home with lunch to finish preparing for the party. We had a wonderful day. After everyone arrived, Kaylee opened gifts and showed off every single one, I have a few pictures of some gifts on here. She loved being the center of attention and even twrilled for everyone multiple times. We were so blessed to have so many family members and friends (Nichols and Ashley Santana) who came to the birthday and ordination party. Josh had a great time as well. It is my prayer that Josh always feels special on his birthday as well...two down....many many more to go..Lord willing! We also cut the cake to announce the gender of our second baby due Sept. 10th, 2010. We had an absolute blast. As soon as we finished, everyone headed to FBC Marco for Josh's ordination ceremony, sermon and party afterwards. Then we all went out to dinner late that evening to finish the wonderful night off! Thank you Lord for such a wonderful day and to have two special people celebrate their birthday's on the same day!

We deceided to make Kaylee's birthday cake again. She absolutely loves Mickey Mouse Club House so we searched the internet for different ideas. Also we deceided to keep the gender of our second baby a secret until the birthday party. We colored the inside of the cake to let everyone know what the gender was. I found a recepit for fondant that actaully taste really good, unlike the professional fondant. Now that I tried out a new recepit for fondant, know how it works and molds I am super excited to make more with it. I loved the recepit.
Daddy and Kaylee were playing, aka: Kaylee was sitting on daddy's back and jumping up and down. Kaylee got a little too rough and slapped daddy on the back pretty hard. Mommy told Kaylee " that wasn't very nice and that hurt daddy" and to " tell him your sorry". Normally she would proceed to say "sorry" and give a hug and/or kiss. Instead, this time as she was sitting on his back, had a remorsful look on her face and leaned down to appoligize, she pointed to daddy's new facial hair and said with such a serious look, " Da da, Boo Boo". She thought daddy's new facial hair was a boo, boo. Too cute!
We allowed Kaylee to spend the night with grandma/pa bc we had just been surprised with her pony the night before. We don't do the Easter Bunny so it didn't matter when she got her Easter Basket and she is about to turn two so in the nursey at church, she wasn't really going to understand much about the real meaning of Easter. After church, we headed to Aunt Beth's house for Easter lunch/dinner. We all had a great time seeing everyone and enjoying the fantastic weather! We tried to take some family pictures but Kaylee wasn't always the most corpertive :). Then we ate dinner and then had a Easter egg hunt which Kaylee had so much fun with. Kaylee loved going down the slide and and playing on the swingset and in the play house.
