Happy Birthday!...to Four of My Five Children...all born in October
We have so many exciting things going on this week, that I can't write my usual posts, but I thought I'd pop these pictures up for you to enjoy. Today is my daughter, Rebekah's 20th birthday! We are having a quiet dinner at home and made her favorite recipe..Lasagna which I showed you how to make here. I also tried a new recipe for dessert because she did not want anything to do with birthday cake. We have way too many birthdays in one month not to get burned out on cake by the 26th.
So I made Chunky Apple Cake..a recipe from Southern Living. Oh my goodness! It's absolutely heavenly, especially with warmed caramel sauce (rather than the cream cheese icing it calls for). I took photos and will share this with you later. It's hard to believe my sweet daughter is now 20! We are down to two teenagers..amazing!
Matthew's birthday was on October 12th. He turned 25! He may look all grown up..but he's still my baby. :o) It was so good to visit with him over the phone. He will be deployed in January and you can be sure I will be praying for his safety all the while he is there. He will be working as a translator in Afghanistan.
Christian celebrated his 16th birthday on October 7th with a camping trip for three..his friend Sean, his 18yr.old brother, Jacob, and himself. They packed plenty of junk food to sustain them and camped in the woods behind our property. With seven acres of woods..it was plenty remote enough for them.
Andrew turned 22 on the same day that Christian turned 16--October 7th! Don't ask me how I managed that one. That made three birthdays in one week. It has had me running for years trying to have three separate birthdays so each child would feel special.
Here he is with his wife, Elisabeth, at the baby dedication for both their children, August and Lena.
Andrew and Ebeth came over when we held Christian's 16th birthday party. We sang Happy Birthday to both of them of course. :o) So you see..October is plenty busy for our family..what with four birthdays. It will be a whirlwind sort of week, so my posts are going to be pretty light, but I look forward to a regular schedule next week. Thanks, so much, all of you for your kind comments while I've been on the go this last week or so. You are such good friends!
Have a great week and
