A Weekend of Celebration

From September

So much to celebrate! God has gifted me with 33 years of life. Saturday we celebrated Benjamin's seventh birthday. Tomorrow we will celebrate Matthew's forth. To celebrate all of these, yesterday we had a party of family and friends at our house. We were blessed by approximately 20 adults and 28 kids, mostly friends from church and our small group.

The kids played tug of war, we went to the park to play, ate chili, cake, pie, sat by a fire and generally enjoyed a wonderful evening. We were so thankful to God for the people we were celebrating and the the people with whom we celebrated. You can see the photos here.

Glad to hear you had a good time. We we're late in coming back from Grand Marais, but would have loved to be there.

Happy birthday brother!

Debbie wanted me to write and say Thanks. We had fun, too. I like the Tug Of War picture.

Great Day! Lessons learned:
> One quart of chili per guest was a bit of overkill. :) Anybody for chili instead of turkey for the holidays?
> A 4 year old boy with a team shirt + cap is a happy person!
> There's nothing like the gritty determination of a 7 yr. old diggin' in his heels to win at tug-of-war. Go, Benny!
> Costco knows how to make a phenominal chocolate cake!
