Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

Birthday weekend fun part 1

This weekend every year is very busy for us because Jimmy and his friends from high school all decided to have their children the first week (or so) of December. We started the weekend at Charlies birthday party. Charlie is the new kid on the block as this was his first birthday! It was a lovely day on Friday and parfect for an outdoor party in Charlies gorgeous backyard! The kids played in the beautiful weather and finshed off the party with yummy Thomas the Tank Engine cupcakes! What a fun afternoon!

On Saturday Jimmy's good friend Todd came over and brought his little boy Trey to play and bring Anna a birthday gift. Trey and Anna had a great time playing on the playground and then with the super fun AquaDoodle Trey got Anna for her birthday!

Saturday afternoon we went to another party. This time for Ava who was turning 4! She and Anna are exactly 1 year and 1 day apart in age! Anna had a great time at the party with all the other children and there was a special appearance by Cinderella, which all the children loved. One of the pictures is of Anna sitting in the circle watching Cinderella do magic tricks. Very fun!

Now, we have our last party today which is the best one of all.... Anna's! This year though it is just a family party, grandparents, aunt, uncle and two cousins! Mommy didn't quite feel up to a full blown party at 8 1/2 months pregnant! =) Anna is so excited about this day and can't wait to see her cake..... she asked mommy to make her a cake that said "happy birthday in blue letters".... I have been getting this request for 2 weeks now so of course I won't let her down! I am on my way into the kitchen right now to make that very cake! I did a blog a while back on the homemade cakes my Granna used to make for us on our birthdays and how much those meant to me so I am trying to carry on that tradition and make homemade cakes for my kids!

Ok, so pictures of Anna's party later today or tomorrow but for now here are some of the other parties from this weekend!
