Jessica' birthday

My little girl turned 7 years old November 20th!! She is growing up waaaay too fast!! :)
For her birthday, she wanted to go hunting with her daddy :) So at 4am, I bundled her up to go deer hunting with Jason. I knew she wouldn't last long...they were on their way home by 10am...but that was a long time for a little girl to be outside in that cold weather. They never did see anything, but I think that special alone time with her daddy will always remain a memory.
While they were out, the boys and I had gone out birthday shopping. We had gotten home, I wrapped it and within seconds she unwrapped her gifts :) A penguin pillow pet and an easy bake kit that you make stuff in your microwave. She was thrilled!! :) So of course, her and I made cookies and cake...she was sooo very proud of the food she made, that she wanted to share some with our elderly neighbor. So after visiting with the neighbor, we come back home only to find the remaining cookies and cakes gone...ugh!! HUNTERRRRRR!!!! I felt terrible!! She didn't even get to try one :( She seemed ok seeing that she had 4 more things she could still bake.
Anyways, after that mishap, Jessica and I made her dirt cake. She was excited to help and then was excited to top it with gummy worms. That evening we had a spaghetti dinner that she requested and then her birthday cake :)
She had received birthday money, so the other day we went shopping and she had gotten another pillow pet,a unicorn :)
Hope she had a fun, memorable birthday! :)

We Will Worship You

We Will Worship You ~Carlos Whittaker

We fix our eyes on You, You are God alone
We fix our eyes on You, You're our only hope
For all we have to lose is our very souls

We fix our eyes on You, You are God alone
We fix our eyes on You, You're our only hope
For all we have to lose is our very souls

Save us from these comforts
Break us of our need for the familiar
Spare us any joy that's not of You
And we will worship You
Yeah, we will worship You

Satisfy us, Lord, in Your unfailing love
Satisfy us, Lord, that You would be enough
We have nothing here, let your kingdom come

Save us from these comforts
Break us of our need for the familiar
Spare us any joy that's not of You
And we will worship you
Yeah, we will worship you

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Save us from these comforts
Break us of our need for the familiar
Spare us any joy that's not of You
And we will worship You
Yeah, we will worship You

Birthday weekend!!

Joshua, my independent boy who wouldn't wait for the midwife to deliver him but dad instead, turned 9 on November 6th!!! :) Still from the day he independently entered this world, he's still my independent boy :) He is my athletic, competitive, kind-hearted boy. Yes, yes, he can be stubborn and whiney at times, but for the most part he shows kindness as he helps his brothers and sister. :)
It was a special birthday because my sister and my nephew and niece were able to come up to visit for the weekend. Even though he wasn't showered with several gifts, he loved the things he had gotten...mainly Wii games!! :) I think he was just happy to have his cousin, Ethan, here to play.
He requested meatball sandwiches and dirt cake for his supper and birthday cake. I also made a chocolate eclaire dessert, knowing that the dirt cake would be devoured!!
All in all, it was a fun weekend!!
