On Sunday, Phillip took Kimberly and Sarah and went to find a church (with the word "holiness" in the title)... that Eric Kuhn had found on the internet and had sent us the address.
Bless their hearts, Phillip, Kimberly, and Sarah came back after finding that there was NO church at that address (it must have moved or something). [Phillip had tried to call the phone number the night before and got no answer either!]
Then they tried to go to 3 other churches. One was just closed with no hours, no explanation as to why it was closed. The other 2 only have night services! =(
So, they came back home after being gone for 2 or more hours looking for a church.
Thank you for your continued prayers that God will guide us.

After they got home... we had a lovely birthday meal and family time together!
For MONTHS or maybe even years I have wanted to make a cake using Fondant. But, when I asked a store in Colombia (that makes those kinds of cakes) where I could buy fondant, I was told that I would have to make it! I had looked on-line and had found a recipe, but for some reason in the midst of cleaning, organizing, sorting, packing, and helping to move our family of 7 to another country...I hadn't been able to try that fondant recipe yet. =)
Before my birthday, I had gone on-line and had looked at fall birthday cakes trying to decide what I wanted to make for my birthday. I had seen one that was fondant and thought..."Oh, I'd LOVE to make a fondant cake for my birthday...but I don't even have a mixer so can't!"
On Saturday afternoon before my birthday, I went to a store to get some paper doilies (for I don't have a tray to put a cake on...so was planning to use a round piece of styro-foam that came with a store brand pizza we bought, as my tray =)...and while in that store I FOUND FONDANT FOR SALE!
I nearly SQUEALED. WITH. JOY. right there in that store! =) =) =)
So, I bought some and came home and had a BLAST making my fondant cake. (I didn't have time to figure out where or what kind of food coloring to use with it, so just made a white cake this time. "Color fondant" will be for our next cake project! =) I thought it SO SPECIAL that Jesus had seen the desires of my heart and had given me fondant to make my birthday cake! =)
~With the paper doilies under it, my cake sort of looks like it was a "Hat Cake" but it was just a round cake!
We cut out little fall leaves and little acorns and put them on top and around the side of my cake. We used melted choc. to make my "H" for ~Heather~ and on the one acorn. We had planned to use more melted chocolate on my cake for some more color, but the choc. was WAY too runny, and it was late on Saturday night and we were tired, so we didn't.~
Wouldn't you know...Jesus "must have heard me" for there are WHITE PLATES in our apt! YEA! =)
Here's My Birthday table.~
So, as you can see...I had a very Happy Birthday! Thanks for all the fun comments y'all have left me! =)~
