I can't believe our precious David turns 6 tomorrow! We had a big party last night and it was so much fun. I always get a little sad when we have birthdays... it's such a joy to watch your own parents enjoying your children so I can't help wishing that grandparents could be here. But then yesterday the verse from Mark kept going through my head ' I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's. But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time'... It is so true that we've been blessed with dear friends over here... when I asked David who he wanted to invite to his birthday party the second person he requested was 'Baba Luba' our special Grandmother friend in her 70's. So we enjoyed friends, Baba Luba, hot dogs, cake and the celebration of life and most of all the Giver of every good and perfect gift.

The kids had a blast making a six layer cake. When we were done David said he wanted to put a plastic soldier from his castle so it would be a 'soldier cake.' So a knight in armor holding a huge ax adorned the cake.. I kept thinking 'this would get the politically correct cake of the year award.'

We have a serious shortage of males in our neighborhood.. so we ended up with 8 female guests... for some reason this made me laugh! :)
