halloween 2014

This year we had a vending machine, cat, sheriff and a ladybug. Daddy had a Batman costume and Momma wore a butterfly mask. We had fun trick or treating in the little towns by our house (even in the cold rainy weather) after we came home and had hot apple cider to warm up.

Happy 5th Birthday Blessing #5!

Our little guy turned 5 years old on Monday and we had a little celebration for him that day. IMG_3032

He was so excited to wake up that morning not only because it was his birthday but his Daddy was home from serving at an orphanage in China. He hadn’t seen his Daddy for  twelve long days.  I made them let Daddy sleep for a little bit before waking him up….they were so happy to see him.


We made the birthday boy his choice of dinner: hot dogs and tator tots. He was super excited to get the large army men he had been wanting. We also got him the Wii board. His sisters bought him a “big eyed” stuffed animal puppy.


Gluten & Dairy free cake for our special boy-can’t believe we needed 5 candles already.


These sweet girls…make my heart smile


Then today we had our tradition of birthday with grandparents. Only one set of the grandparents could make it but it was still a really nice time. Also, Blessing #1 was home for fall break so that was extra special for little guy. Plus it was an extra special day because today is our referral-versary 5 years ago was when we got our sons referral call.

Dear Lord- Thank you for the privilege to be this little guys parents. We pray that you will give us wisdom and grace in this parenting adventure. It is our hearts desire that our son would know you and your love for him at an early age and serve you all the days of his life. That he would know you have a great plan for him and that he would be used in mighty ways for your kingdom. Lord that you will turn ashes into beauty as your Word says. What a blessing he is in our life and thank you for him and your great love for us all. Amen.
