Canaan’s Birthday Bash!

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Rather than just one day, we like to celebrate AT LEAST a week of birthday at our house, so here’s just a snapshot of the fun we’ve been having over the past week.  We started the festivities off with a party on Sunday, when family gathered at our house for lunch, presents, and of course [...]
