We are SO GLAD that Jesus saw fit to"drop into our home" our very ACTIVE, Very sensitive, very "snuggy" [That would be "huggy and snuggly" mixed together =) ], Fun-loving Elijah!
Trust me there is NEVER a dull moment in our home with him around! =)
He loves activity, but also loves to COLOR and can stay there for hours. He loves Jesus and has a very tender conscious. I said he's snuggy....but that normally is at nights or when he's sick only! During the day he doesn't like to give out too many hugs...for he LOVES a challenge and LOVES for us to chase him in order to GET a hug. =)
A few weeks ago when Phillip and I came home from the ultrasound of our baby and we announced to the kids that it appears we are going to have a baby girl....Elijah just shrugged his shoulders and said,
"Oh, Well, THE NEXT BABY can be a baby boy!!!!" =D
I tried to tell him that since Mommy will turn 41 her next birthday, I didn't know IF there would be "A NEXT BABY!" =)
~Since we were going to have 2 tables at his little birthday party, we made 2 birthday cakes. This is the chocolate cake that I made for the adult's table.
It's just a simple 2 layer chocolate cake with a thin layer of plain Peanut butter spread between the 2 layers, then a thin layer of P.Butter spread on top, then white chocolate drizzled in circles, and choc. chips sprinkled. We love the taste of the P. Butter and chocolate together. We served both cakes with vanilla ice cream.~
She had no cake mold, just looked at the picture and made it all up in her head.~
Our Dear Friends Leo and Caro and their Jonathan and Valentina took our family to the zoo for Elijah's birthday!~
Thankfully it was Tuesday and so it was half price per ticket and because it was ELIJAH'S birthday he and Mary both GOT IN FOR FREE!!!! =) ~
It was interesting and sort of funny. =) ~
He got to go by the first snack shop we came to and they gave him a BIG cup with a straw that has the name of the zoo and fun animal pics on it and it was filled with....~
