Four HAPPY Birthdays Celebrated!

This year brought something new for us.  My sister, brother-in-law and niece are training in Hungary to be missionaries.  I am so thankful that we can video call with them often.

Family came from in and out of town to help us celebrate the birthdays.  First, we video called over to Hungary to wish my niece a happy 2nd birthday!  That child is so entertaining and lovable!

Second, it was time to celebrate Nana's birthday!  Lots of animal print flip-flops and flip-flop slippers plus a brain teaser book were given.

Now it was the Knight's turn . . . Pretzel cones was the favorite gift, I think.  They had to be mail ordered as local stores don't carry them anymore.

Bud has been asking for a pinata for his birthday.  How do you justify a pinata for three children?  You buy a mini-ata!

The Knight and Bud recently went on a Father/Son camping outing at church.  The Knight said I was trying to drag up bad memories by making a camping cake. Ha!  It seemed to be a bit hit though especially when it was time to light the candles and sing!

Happy 7th Birthday!

Seven years ago, we welcomed a BIG baby boy into our family. Although he wasn't in our plans, I'm glad he was in God's plan for us. He brings joy to me on a daily basis, and I don't know what I'd do without my little boy's hugs. 

Happy Birthday, Bud!
