~Sarah's HAPPY Birthday~

It is time for us to leave Argentina to renew our tourist visas for here.  We leave early this morning to take a 2 hour boat ride to the small country of Uruguay. We'll be coming back near the weekend, Lord willing.  Please pray for us.  Thank you!

Sarah had a wonderful birthday...Thank you for all your sweet comments! =) I have a few LOTS of pics to post really quickly before we leave for Uruguay.  Enjoy!
I wanted a cake stand, so we made one.  We took this plate, and this bottle and...~
 ~Hot glued them together.  (I would recommend a wider base, but this is the only thing we could find.)~
 ~Sarah (with her silly brothers) opening up one of her gifts.~
 ~Sarah Strawberry Shortcake cake that Jesus helped us to make. =)~
 ~Sarah loved her cake!~

 ~We used a strawberry to hold a place card at each place setting.=)~
 ~At first we were having trouble finding Strawberry Shortcake things for her party, but Jesus helped us to find a store that had a lot of things.  =) ~
 ~Sweet Sarah and her table~
 ~One of the gifts she received was a neat Strawberry Shortcake booklet from Kimberly that had this poster in it...so we had her open it early in the day so we could use it to decorate with. =)~
 ~Sarah was HAPPY with her gifts.~
 ~A "My Little Pony" that "bakes"...with a lot of fun things to make cakes, cookies, pies, etc.  When Sarah showed me this in the store earlier, I knew I wanted to get it for her.  (I wonder who Sarah takes after? =)
 ~Opening her gifts.~
 ~Sarah came up with the idea to make lemonade and make strawberry ice cubes...so that's what we did and it was delicious.~
 ~Getting ready to eat yummy Skyline Chili!~
 ~Daddy (and the rest of us) praying a special birthday blessing over Sarah.~
 ~Another one of Sarah's requested gifts.  A baby with a bathtub that plays music, lights up and sprays water. =)~
 ~Then, after eating her birthday supper we all started packing for our trip to Uruguay.  But I soon discovered...that WHILE I WAS BUSY PACKING...a certain busy 3 year old was in my kitchen making his own version of "Strawberry Shortcake"...using vitamins, onions, bananas, honey, water, and nearly all of my red sugar to make Christmas goodies!  (`~`)
I had to take his picture with it...for He was SO HAPPY with his "CAKE"! =]~
 ~And then a few seconds later, I heard it HIT THE FLOOR!  HELP!  So, I whisked him off to the bathtub and cleaned up the mess...then went back to packing!  Life is never dull around our house! =)~
 ~Sarah and her cake.  It was late at night, and we had A LOT on our minds...so we COMPLETELY FORGOT to put her candle on her cake! =(~
 Sarah had a special day...and now I am off to finish packing and get out the door so we can get to our boat on time.  Thank you for your prayers that all will go smoothly with our trip!

(You want to talk about who is CUTE...your silent spectator, Noah, is absolutely adorable!)
Heather, your daily posts are more intriging than the comic books I read as a young girl!
Two neat & novel ideas were the strawberry place card holders AND the STRAWBERRY ICE CUBES for the pitcher of pink lemonade. That pitcher of lemonade was BEAUTIFUL!
Yes, Miss Sarah takes after her mama but I wonder WHO Elijah takes after!? Ha! I roared aloud with laughter like your father does when I read what 'Whyjah' was doing while you all were packing.
The most precious picture on this post is your family kneeling around Sarah praying for Jesus to bless and help her through her life.
I pray that Jesus will give you connections with just the right people while you are in Uruguay. Love, Mom D
