Birthday Celebrations during the Storm

Wednesday was the day late celebration of Mom and Aunt Carmen's birthday.

The cake was a joint effort. Christianna made it, I (Grace) whipped up the icing and Christianna and Josiah decorated it.

In blew Carmen and Tim and G&G on the wings of the storm that was billowing over us, poring down gallons of rain and a pelting of hail.

The wind was pretty strong too and this is what the back end of the garden looked like after it stopped raining! Check out the corn row on the far side! =O

Josiah, always finding some sort of aquatic creature to befriend.

We were going to have a cookout dinner on our big deck but because of the storm our large garage worked nicely!

Inside we were nice and dry, grilling up delicious chicken kabobs, while outside the storm raged on, thankfully blowing from the north so we could have the garage doors open the whole time!

Birthday girls!

Sorry Tia, I just had to put this one on!

We got Aunt Carmen and Uncle Tim to try our "favorite" sunglasses on!

This is one of mom's gifts. A levitating globe!

Pretty amazing! Magnetically suspended, it is sure to attract a "world" of comments! =)
Happy birthday Mom and Aunt Carmen! May God bless you with many more!

More Pictures

Tuesday evening we enjoyed the blessed fellowship with friends from Church and their son and his family who are starting a Church down in Georgia. Sorry I didn't take that many pictures and unfortunately I accidentally deleted one of their little girl. Anyways...we had a wonderful and uplifting time together and thank the Lord for these brothers and sisters in Christ!

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible,
to God who alone is wise,
be honor and glory forever and ever.
