Austin's Day...make that Week!

We have had a festive week celebrating Austin's 11th birthday! First, a party with four of his best buddies... ...and Red Velvet Cupcakes! Then a trip to Kampai for the most-desired sushi...
Then a few gifts...
And a breakfast request of croissants and hot chocolate (a fun French tradition we learned about quite a few years ago in one of our Five in a Row units!)...
And last but not least, Irish Dream Cake for the birthday guy! And Buddy, here are some important words a friend spoke over you a few years ago. I thought that now, in light of all that the Father is doing in our family, would be a great time to remind you of them...

Austin...You are a young man of integrity, honesty, purity, and compassion. The Lord smiles with pleasure when He looks upon you. There are secrets between you and the Lord and it is His pleasure to give you more. You have a shepherd's heart, son, and the Lord cherishes that heart. Let Him have it completely.

We love you, Austin!


  1. What a fun day! I love that you have FIAR traditions built into his birthday! The prayer/blessing at the end was beautiful!

    Hugs to you friend!

  2. Thanks, Leslie! FIAR is such a part our special! Hugs back to you! :)
