Today is a very special day for our daughter Jessica and my cousin Debbie! Happy Birthday, Girls!!! My Jessica is seven years old today!!! God chose for them to share birthdays and He also chose for Debbie to take part in Jessica’s name. At the time of Jessica’s adoption, we were able to change her name. Debbie e-mailed me with the idea of changing her middle name to Faith. IT WAS THE PERFECT NAME! My cousin Kandis has a beautiful post today in honor of my cousin Debbie. Please check it out HERE. I want everyone to see all the pics.
Yesterday was Tom’s birthday. We have been good friends with Tom and Karen for like fourteen years. Tom’s a great guy who loves to laugh big and loud at his own jokes! MOST of the time everyone else laughs too!!!! Tom has a very serious side when it comes to men’s ministry and his work with kids at the children’s hospital. Tom has a bible study group that he leads and he is one of the men in charge of men’s ministry at their church. Maybe if I get time I’ll post a crazy picture soon! Happy Birthday Tom! Check out Karen’s birthday post HERE.
We couldn’t wait for the kids to go to sleep last night. They were so wound up about Jessica’s birthday. Finally, they all slipped into deep sleep and we snuck into Jessica’s room. James and I decorated it with balloons and placed a really cool brand new bike at the foot of her bed!!! I couldn’t wait for her to wake up this morning. She came running out and asked if we knew there was a bike in her room!!! James put four dollars in the purse on the handle bars.
The girls were excited to help her celebrate!
Jessica wanted microwave sausage and biscuits for her birthday breakfast. Kids are so funny! I told her I’d make her anything and that’s what she picked! She has a special birthday plate and cup she uses each year.
Her Daddy gave her a special journal.
I gave her a new outfit to wear to school!
She asked James to please come home early! She wants to open her gifts from her sisters and head to Chuck E. Cheese for pizza and tokens!!
