Here are some pictures of the day...
This is my niece who had her birthday on the 12th of August. She had a bad bruise on her chin from a run-in with the cement sidewalk a few days ago.
I love how she is looking at her brother when his turn came to blow out his candles. He will have his birthday in December. It was cute, when we were singing, "Happy Birthday to you...", he was singing, "Happy Birthday to me!"
This is my niece who will celebrate her Birthday in October.
Fun with the cousins!
Save the paper!!
Modeling for her picture.
The grand daughters get a special porcelain doll every year of their birthday, from age one to eighteen. All the girls look forward to this special gift from Grandma and Grandpa.
All the boys get tractors until age 5, I believe.
*We went to the Splash Pad for the birthday/farewell party, too...but I am posting those pictures another day.
This is a picture of my sister and her four kids. She is currently a single mom, but planning on marrying soon.
I am not going to get into all the details of my sister's situation, and choices. But I do ask for prayer for their family, and mostly for her kids. We will miss them, and they will be far away. There is some good to that, but a lot of it is scary. I pray that God will protect them, and that she will surrender to HIM~~Please keep my sister and her kids in your prayers. Please pray that my sister will make wise choices, and that her choices and actions will honor God. Thanks!
