Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Daddy!!! You are officially 40 years young! You are the best dad I could ever ask for! You are a mentor and guide, a musician and a teacher. Boy,can you make people laugh!

  Buzzard's birthday was actually yesterday so we all went to his restaurant of choice, Archies. We had a GREAT time. And I hope he did too! Here are some pictures of the fun we had.
this isn't from archie's but I thought I should post it anyways.

Buzzard and his sister, LaRae.

Boy, did he enjoy that cake!!

Okay, this last pic has a story behind it. Greta, the woman in the middle of the picture is a very loyal reader of our blog! We ran into her at the restaurant while we were eating.  It was weird, she knew all about us and even called us by our nicknames! We all felt pretty famous.

The morning of Dad's birthday we made a cake. It was SOOO good and we had a lot of fun with it. We also pretended to be elves and decorated a Christmas tree for my grandpa, who didn't have time to put one up this year.Here is a picture of it.
I made a popcorn string to go on it but I could only make one because Bear ate all the rest of the popcorn. We had a whole lot of fun decorating that tree.

Post a comment to wish Buzzard a Happy Birthday!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

WHOOOOOHOOOOO! 21 days 'till CHRISTMAS!!! The Henn family is ready for it! Anyway, since Christmas is so very soon we put up our tree and decorated the house. And while decorating for other holidays might pass unnoticed, decorating for Christmas(or Christamas, as my piano teacher might say) does not. It could almost pass as another holiday in itself, (maybe not but whatever!) So, because pictures say 1,000 words, I will post some :)
Last week our family went to Minneapolis to celebrate Thanksgiving/Christmas with my mom's side (grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles) We had a BLAST!! There is NO words in the world that could describe the fun we had.  Here are some pics of that.

All the girl cousins (minus Squeakers) eating breakfast.

My cousin (on the right) is SO cute in everything she does!


Dad and Uncle JT took us to the closest YMCA.

all the cousins having a pj party.

             We had a ton of fun! But that's not the end of this long post :)
       I also have pics of our Christmas decorating party!
   Usually we set up the tree, then have our decorating but but this year we did it differently. This year, we had our traditional Jerry's pizza, and cookies the night we set up the tree, then this morning we had doughnuts and hot cocoa and decorated.
sprinkles, sprinkles, sprinkles!!

notice Dash and Buzzard in the corner. so sweet!

what do you think that he is thinking?!
              It is always is sooo fun to post to the blog! Also, this is Squeakers first Christmas!!
       Last thing, this video of Squeakers is ADORABLE. I have never seen (or heard) her laugh that hard.
