Jaan's Birthday Celebration!!

What a day we had on Saturday! Our friends Dean & Olga Kershner were visiting from America, and it was Caleb's best buddy Jaan Hunsucker's 2nd birthday!! This called for a celebration... James and Andrei had plans to visit people that day, so there was no way James could go. He said I was *crazy* for driving into Moscow with 3 children and 37 weeks preggo :) But we were desperate so off we went! We had such a wonderful, special day... getting to finally meet the Kershner children for the first time and getting to watch Jaan blow out his candles while Caleb clapped enthusiastically. As you can imagine it wasn't easy getting 8 children under the age of 6 to sit & smile for a picture! So this picture is pretty pricelss - Jaan Hunsucker, David, Caleb, Harvey K, Adriel K, Irvin K, Rachel & Raia.

Rachel loved getting to hold little baby Raia .. good practice I kept thinking! When we got home, Rachel said 'I hope baby Johanna (what we're planning to call Beaird baby #4) is as cute as baby Raia' :) I just wish we could see each other more than every 14 months...

I was doing a little blog hopping and stumbled on to yours. Just thought I'd say Hi, as I know what it's like to have a blog, it's nice to receive comments. If you are at all interested, you can visit my site here removing spyware

I love what Rachel said! :-) Of course Johanna will be just as cute (but not any cuter. That wouldn't be possible.)

Kathy (Phyllis' Mom) said...

I'll "amen" Phyllis' statement as I thank you for the extra glimpse of Raia and write up of Jaan's day.

Yes, thank you for another picture of the birthday! How nice to know that Jaan has a "best buddy" at two! Isn't it wonderful to have such dear Christian friends ministering for the Lord and fairly close by? I know you are all very grateful for that! In Him, Julie Hunsucker

Congratulations on the birth of Johanna Joy! So glad to hear that baby and mom are well. I was remembering you in prayer during your pregancy. I'll continue to for the health of your family. So glad I got to meet you while you were in the states.
