Jake's 9th Birthday!!

I haven't blogged in a couple months because I started a new job that takes up a lot of my time. I did however want to make sure to get Jake's 9th birthday post up.

Jake celebrated his 9th Birthday on February 17th, 2018. We had a Mario themed party because Jake's favorite thing to do is play Mario. It was a fun day!!

Cookies with Santa 2017

MNAPVI is an organization for parents by parents of visually impaired children. It's goal is to help Minnesota families impacted by visual impairments. Once a year MNAPVI puts together an event for the kids and families called Cookies with Santa. Jake had a blast! 

Emily and Jake both have the same eye disease called FEVR. They met when they were just babies.
