Happy Birthday, Manno!

Manno turned 4 today. It was a bittersweet day for us. We miss him and want him to be home with us for the big and little celebrations but we are so happy that he lives with people who love him and celebrate these milestones with him in special ways. 
The boys were very excited about Manno's birthday. Andrew woke up and immediately yelled, 'It's Manno's birthday today! Let's decorate the house!' 

We picked out some party plates and crepe paper and decorated the diningroom table. 

 We also made a 'Manno' banner for our chalkboard.

And we sang. 
Sorry that you have to mostly hear me singing but I was holding the camera and was closest to the microphone. Just sing along to the video and you won't even be able to hear me. :)

We love you Manno and we can't WAIT for you to be home with us.
