Our Noah's original due date was Jan. 1st or so....but he liked being with Mommy tooooo much and did NOT want to be born. =)
So, finally, I talked to Phillip and told him that I was probably going to have to be induced and we needed to decide if we were going to have this baby on Kimberly's birthday or the day before or just when.
We talked to Kimberly and she said she would LOVE to have our baby be born on her same birthday.
The morning of her 6th birthday I woke up in labor!!!
So, Jesus sent Kimberly a WHOPPING 10 lb. 6.7 oz brother for her 6th birthday! =)
We are SO Happy and BLESSED to have our Kimberly and our Noah. They both love Jesus and their family and others and have learned that that is a wonderful way to spell J-O-Y! (Jesus and Others and You, what a wonderful way to spell Joy! =)
They both have always been a big help around our home...but they and Sarah are really helping lift the load right now while Mommy is in SLOW MOTION. =)~

Kimberly knew that her Mommy...is busy making Baby #6....and has absolutely NO ENERGY to have a birthday party right now. =D
So, Kimberly told me what she wanted for her 16th birthday (as her main present) was to invite a bunch of her friends to spend a few hours at the Mall with her.
She told them in her invitation to please bring money for supper and for their own shopping, and that we would provide them all a Starbucks. So, we did just that Last Friday night!
Kimberly told me that she WANTED to take little Mary along...and that she and Sarah would help take care of her. =) Little Mary pretty much has Kimberly W.R.A.P.P.E.D. around her finger. =)
We told all Kimberly's friends to meet us in front of Kohl's.
Natasha was the only smart one and grabbed the wheelchair to await everyone's arrival.
I was REALLY TEMPTED to climb in the wheelchair and have everyone push ME around for the rest of the evening. =)~
tiny baby! =) ~
So, we got the 8 comfortable chairs at one end, and threw in some wooden chairs and since there was 14 or so of us we pretty much took over that part of Starbucks. =)
Jessica and Adrian at the one end.~
Kimberly asked Hard questions about her self, and then gave a gift to whoever got the most answers correctly. Her cousin Darla won.
Kimberly's friends treated her so kindly with their cards and gifts.~
I don't know which of these 2 pics that I took was the girl's favorite...so I'll just post them BOTH. =)~
Kimberly got a fun red and white stripped mug on sale from Starbucks, and a volleyball to take to Argentina to practice with her Daddy. =)
That way when we come back to have baby and she goes to our Comargo camp, she'll be in practice for the volleyball games. =)
Noah got a 1,000 piece puzzle, a game, and a Lego set (we bought him the camper set...for ever since our friends the DeMints loaned us their camper for deputation 2009, our kids notice ALL campers on the road. =)
Phillip snapped a couple pics on his phone, but he's gone right now...so I'll have to post those 2 pics later.
Noah really enjoyed his birthday party and being with his friends. His friends gave him nice gifts too!
Here Elijah is helping Noah put together his Lego set. =) ~
