As I've stated many times in some ways it was a very long year and in some ways it was a blink of an eye. It was mainly a year of survival! A year of waking up each day and putting one foot in front of the other to keep moving. A year of learning to ask God, what next Lord to keep moving.
Betsy, I hope there is never any doubt in your eyes, how loved you are. You are loved by many! You are loved deeply. We cannot imagine our lives without you...
In our home, we love a book! We especially love a colorful classic like The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
I like having a theme for my children's birthday celebration. It makes it easier. I know I didn't have to go to the effort for Betsy's birthday, but I think it is important for my other children to see us celebrate each other.
I planned the simple supper around the foods that the caterpillar eats in the book.
My inspiration came from here.
Everyone enjoyed your birthday slide show...
I had some help setting the table. Mary Frances made place cards for everyone. Aren't her caterpillars cute!
We love having you at the table with us.
Henri kept trying to eat your food.
You didn't like it!
You also didn't like your cake. That's okay...
Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!
