Birthday Fun

Precious memories! My babies had their birthday this past weekend. What a blessing to have my little man here for 7 years and our little pumpkin is now a year old. What is so awesome is that they share the same birthday and it is almost to the exact hour. Little man got his very own tool set for his birthday and was very eager to get out and help dad with something.. he has been very cute as the tools have gone everywhere, and I mean he has literally carried them from room to room wherever he goes. He also got a cute daddy & son camping set from Gram & Pie. Pumpkin got some new blocks to play with for her birthday and she really likes them. We find her stirring them with her hand, rather than holding them. She also got a glow worm from Gram & Pie. She loves to listen to it sing and glow. Wonderful for driving to church. Pumpkin got her first taste of birthday cake. We made a soft orange cake with cream cheese frosting. She got a tiny piece which she really was only interested in the icing as you can tell by the pics below. Thank you Lord for allowing me to be a mother and have 5 blessings. Thank you Lord for my 2 precious birthday babies .. oh how they don't stay little long.

Trying to figure out what is on the finger


I think I can get more of that icing


That was good!

Hey Ms. Carrie,
Oh how I remember those times of days gone by, when my children were young, and every birthday brought such a twinkle to their little eye's. Their hope's and wishs of presents, cake, ice cream, and soda. Family that would gather for every childs special day. A chance to Thank God for another year with them. Cherish these times with your little one's, take lots of pic's, and hold all these precious memories deep in the recesses of your heart and mind. For all to quickly they are grown, birthday's become ... not quite the fanfare event that is was when younger. Families often stop coming around, or stop sharing their birthdays of their children that are still at home. Young adults and teens wish for more time with other friends ( as is the natural way... to a point). Then all to soon they are grown and gone. Like I posted yesterday, "What kind of memories are you growing in your home"? Grow all the memories possible and enjoy every...day...second...breath...
moment... with your children. Pressious they are, and to fast they leave home.
Love & Prayers,
Ronda
Have A Peachy Keen Day.
