Our Jedi Celebration

We celebrated Ford's 6th Birthday this week, he had his heart set on a Star Wars adventure.  It seems that we view the word - birthday - so casually. Truly it should be a day of celebration! It's a day that God planned and allowed each of us to be born into this world, for His purpose (Isaiah 49:1,3). What an amazing gift and celebration. I know some people don't celebrate individual birthdays with much gusto, but we do! What a fantastic way to show our love for the person and the opportunity that each day brings with it. We pray and hope God's love and guidance will be in each of our children's hearts and God will make their paths straight. We also pray that along their journey's they have much joy, love, laughter, and spirits of service. 

Thanks to Nana & Papa for allowing us to celebrate at their oasis and to everyone for traveled to help us celebrate!  We enjoyed decorating 'Star Wars' cookies (though they didn't look like them once they came out of the oven), swimming, grilling, yummy watermelon salsa, overtaking the force of a Darth Vader pinata (the string pinata was a lemon, so we had to resort to a stick, in order to knock the prizes out of it). I made a Storm Trooper birthday cake, per Ford's request. Some people liked it, other were freaked out by it....LOL :-)  It was a Wonderful sunny day and we look forward to doing it again.... in October.

We would also like to send heartfelt Birthday wishes and prayers to our family: Tiffany, Tamara, Susan, Samantha, Zeke, Ashlee & Mosby - HAPPY BIRTHDAY! July is a very blessed month :-)

Love ~
Our Birthday Boy, 6!
