~Our Kimberly and Noah have a birthday!~

~So our Kimberly turned Sweet 16! and our Noah turned 10!
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. =)~
~I had them snap this pic of My Kimberly, Sarah, Mary and I and our tiny baby! =) ~
~We then went to the food court...mainly 'cause this Mommy-to-be was STARVED ;-)...where everyone got something to eat.~

~Then we went shopping.  Here Natasha and Kimberly are posing while Natasha sports some cool sunglasses.  We tried to get Kimberly to try on a pair...but she wouldn't. =) ~
~Pretty much the whole group inside Starbucks...except for Brittany and little Mary...who were saving our seats for us. Thanks, Britt!~
~Mary got Strawberries and Cream.   And YES...that is the smallest size they offered for little kids! =( ~
~Brittany and Mary.  Mary Loves her Brittany!~
~The Lord was good to us and we went to a LARGE Starbucks. It was almost like a warehouse.
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.~
~All the rest of the girls.
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.~
~Some young ladies had already gone home, but I snapped one last pic before we parted ways.  We had a super fun evening together and Kimberly was THRILLED!!
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 and Noah with their gifts.
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.  =)
~Their cake was pretty Pitiful...but at least this very sick...very exhausted Mother got off the couch and TRIED.  =) ~
~I made just made a simple choc. cake with cool whip icing, and served it with peppermint ice cream.~
~Phillip took Noah, Elijah, and Bryan to McDonalds where they met several of Noah's friends from our church for lunch.  Then they went to Bass Pro shop to look around and then back to McDds for ice cream and to play "cops and robbers" in the play land until the parents picked up their boys.  =)
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.  =) ~

Such a cute birthday post of the birthday 'twins' and their special day celebrations! I have their b-day cards on the 'mail' shelf ready to put in tomorrow's mail. As usual, they're late, but maybe that will help extend their b-days a bit longer. Bethie did put their b-day money into your account, Monday. Their birth days were both such special days; Kimberly as our first adorable grandchild, and Noah as our first little male 'piggy'. That little baby was humongus! We are so grateful for the beautiful grandchildren you have given us. And we love the way you are raising them!
We are praying that Jesus will help you through these upcoming, busy, traveling days; and before you know it, you'll be back to Cincy again! With much love, Mom D.

Dear Heather,
The b-day cake is cute, don't say it's, too bad! Most of the time I don't even decorate, I'm doing good to get a cake made sometime around their B-day time!:) Looks like they both had fun B-days! It's funny that you and I both have kids that share B-days and its my oldest boy and my oldest girl, too! :) I guess we have more in common then I thought! Now you just need to have another boy and we'll both have 3 of each! Cool Hu? Well, love you, hang in there and we're praying you keep getting all the rest you need! Hannah Klunder
