~Noah and Kimberly having a birthday~

~Today, our Noah turned 4!~~And today, Our Kimberly turned 10~
~Our children on Sunday.~
~On Saturday, we knew we would have a more enjoyable birthday celebration (due to not having much time on Sunday) so we went to a Rotisserie chicken restaurant that has a play ground and we all had an enjoyable meal and our kids had a BLAST!~
~Yummy chicken!~
~Daddy taught in Phillip's 3 hour Bible class, and Phillip interpreted into Spanish. They said that God helped them and Phillip was excited about how the class went!~
~Their Bible class students!~
~While they were gone, my Moma made 2 blackberry pies for our Sunday dinner and I decorated our table with snowmen and snowflakes, made a cake and made a snack for Kimberly and Noah's birthday. I did a fun centerpiece with REAL Colombian coffee beans that I had heard of, and then my sister reminded me of too (and I put snowmen in it for the party!) THANK YOU to my dear sister Laura for the yummy choc. cake mix, we are enjoying it, since we cannot get them here! After our men and Kimberly came home from class, we had a nice birthday snack, cake and ice cream, and our kids opened their birthday gifts.~
~I got these fun snowmen cloth napkins on sale last year!~
~The cake I threw together right before they came home from the Bible class!~
~Their birthday snack!~
~All 3 kids with their cake!~
~Ready to open gifts!~

~The Cassady family bought nice gifts for our children (and us) and they got to open them with their birthday gifts. THANK YOU CASSADYS for all of the wonderful gifts, we LOVE all of them!!~
~This Sunday morning Daddy taught Sunday school and Phillip interpreted into Spanish!~
~During church this Sunday morning! Daddy and Moma do a good job reading the Spansih hymns and singing the Spanish songs. Moma remembers well singing a lot in their Spanish classes at GBS many years ago.~
~In our church there are 5 of us pregnant ladies, here's 4 of us!~
~Our family after church this morning!~
~The 5th pregnant lady and me. She was having a baby shower today, but we couldn't stay for it, because of needing to eat lunch and then having another service Sunday night. So, we brought her a gift, and she gave us a cold drink, and we visited for a few minutes then we caught our bus, then walked the mile home. Moma and I hurried and got our "Christmas dinner" ready but by the time we got it ready, there was only 25 minutes for Phillip, Daddy, and our kids to eat and run to our evening service. Our "Christmas meal" was BEYOND DELICIOUS!!! Turkey, gravy, homemade dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and green beans, then blackberry pie for dessert. After they left for church, Moma and I fell into bed and baby and I slept for 2 1/2 hours!! =D~
We had a good weekend. These next few days we will be busy running around with Daddy and Moma, so I may not be able to post. I'll post more pics and news as soon as I can! Thanks for your nice comments and prayers! We're having a blast together!

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! To Kimberly and Noah from a Birthday Twin!!It Looks like you had a nice birthday! I didn't know if I could send an e-card to you'all? I had a very different birthday...but it was quite restful :) I was SICK! ugh!!
Heather, Remember that scarf you tried teaching me? The one you make using your fingers. (You are gonna laugh) I asked my sister-in-law if by chance they teach you how to make them at the MK training. Just thought I'd try...No go.. I keep doing something wrong. Maybe you can show one of my sister-in-laws, and they can teach me if I don't see you'all when you come back. By the way are you sure your not having TWINS!! Just thought I'd ask... Every mother needs to be asked at least ONCE!! You'all are in are thoughts and prayers even if we didn't send you a Christmas Card!! Thankyou for the Bible chart. It got put to use!! Don't worry about answering me soon. I can't Blog very often. EnJoy the precious moments you have with your parents! Love,Becky

Happy Birthday Kimberly and Noah! Wish we could give you a big birthday hug from your auntie and uncle and all the cousins from up here. I hope you had a marvelous day. Christmas dinner sounded delicious. Neat that there are so many ladies pregnant at the same time.

Enjoyed seeing all the memories you are making with your parents there! I know you all are having a wonderful time! I really enjoyed seeing how you made your parents so welcome with the candy, guest towels, etc. I always enjoy doing that when company comes...I think it is fun to make them feel "special"! Looks like you did a great job! Happy Birthday to your little ones, too! Have a wonderful day!
