December Birthdays

On the first Sunday of Advent, we celebrated Eleanor's 5th birthday.  She had a great day being showered with love, attention, and of course gifts.

 Do you think she liked the gift from big brother Joseph?

 Esther "helped" Eleanor with her sticker books!

 The birthday girl with her cookie cake that she helped decorate!  Happy Birthday, Eleanor!

Ten days later, it was Haley's turn. She celebrated her 11th birthday. We managed to fit in most of our school work, guitar, and dance lessons amidst all the birthday festivities.

Lillian knows about Haley's sweet tooth and gave her a yummy treat.  Esther wanted to be included in the picture, too!

Madeline gave Haley her crocheted dog that won a ribbon at the County Fair this summer.

The kids are ready to sing to the birthday girl.

She got all 11 of them blown out!  Happy Birthday, Beaner!

Now that the children's birthday celebrations are over, we can hunker down and finish out Advent before the real big birthday celebration on Christmas!

The children are all excited to pick up Uncle Neil from the airport tomorrow.  He's my younger brother visiting from Texas for a few days.  We haven't seen him in 2 years...we can't wait!

God Bless!
