April Fools!

So instead of doing the traditional way of knowing, April thought of finding out if her baby was a he or she by eating cake.

They gave their first ultrasound result to the baker for a much awaited surprise. If the inside of the cake reveals blue then obviously it’s a boy. If it shows pink, then baby’s a girl.

We get to vote too! Winners get prizes! Funny because couples tend to vote one for each so either way they get to take home a prize (haha!).

For him and for her giveaways.

Remembering a Friend

God looked around his Garden and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon his earth and saw your loving face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
His Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.
As the days come and go and the world moves on,
I know you’re still here, you’ll never be gone.
On the night the Angel came and
took your hand,
We cried as you left for an unknown land.
But Heaven rejoiced as you came into
sight,
For your soul was a diamond, shining so bright!

It has been eight years since you’ve gone, but it feels like you’re just here somewhere, maybe on eternal vacation. Your view must be amazing with the powdery sand, the blue sea and the awesome sunsets.

We miss you Maiks and I hope you enjoyed when we came bringing you pizza and barbecue and ice cream because we certainly did! 😄 (not to mention all the juicy gossip)

Because you are always remembered..
Because you are forever loved..
Because you are greatly missed..
