A Little Celebration





The boys turned 21 last Saturday!
They had already picked out their gifts earlier and I got them
some new clothes, shoes and slippers.
But they had a few little gifts to unwrap just for fun tonight!

If you think of the guys tomorrow morning, I'd appreciate it!
They each have a dentist appointment.  The Mister is helping
me take them.  Pray for calm, cooperative boys and smooth
visits, would you?  Any time I ask my blog friends to pray
for us in stressful situations, it never fails to help!
Thanks so much..you guys are the best!

**update...we're home from the dentist!
No cavities!  Things went smoothly except Spencer
needs to go back again for some additional cleaning
under anesthesia.  Today was fairly calm with no
melt downs, so I'm grateful.  Thanks for praying!

  5. Happy Birthday to your guys!! They seem very intrigued by the cake (or is it the candles?!). I can't figure out who is who but just love them all!

    Sending many prayers for tomorrow. Who likes the dentist or is calm but I appreciate that you need a few extra angels!

    1. Thanks, Jane....I appreciate it!

      It's the candles...none of them eat sweets. So they love the singing and the blowing out of the candles and then they ripped open their presents and were gone in a flash. haha....the rest of us sat around the table and talked and ate. haha.

    2. So instead of asking them what they want for their birthday cake I guess you make a dessert that YOU like?

    3. Most years I make a big cake and decorate it with trains...so at least they enjoy looking at it. But yeah, we're the ones that eat it. ha.

  17. Thanks for sharing the Birthday party photos, hard to believe that they are 21 already! I'm getting something ready for Kevin's birthday so I'm also going through old photos and came across one of the times I helped out with the boys, I think they were around 2 years old, what sweet faces they had even back then! I am praying right now for the Dentist appointments...I don't even enjoy going!

  24. Harry, Spencer, and Alex - Happy Belated Birthday! May you be blessed with many, many more.
    The birthday celebration pictures are precious.
    You may be at the dentist as I type - I hope and pray that it's a pleasant visit.
    Can't help but notice how attractive your home is.
    I love the pictures and the arched doorway. And I think I spot your new floor!
