Everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25
Aren't birthdays great? I don't care how old you are you just can't help but feel special. Cards, phone calls, cakes, and gifts.......
I think Ty had a pretty good birthday Friday. Although, he didn't really understand why he wasn't having his big birthday party on his birthday. I almost felt guilty about that, but how many people are really able to have their party on their actual birthday?
We did take him out to eat pizza, and what 6 year old doesn't love that? He got to open some presents too. The Tool Man and I gave him a bike. He was soooooo excited. We've got the perfect place for him to ride up at the restaurant in the parking lot. (You did know we were opening up a pizza joint didn't you? More about that another day.)
And I made Ty a cake too. Yeah, I had 3 hours of uninterrupted free time, and I wasted spent it making this. I know there was some laundry somewhere that I should have been ironing. The sacrifices we make for our children.
Each year, since the second Ty was born, I have taken Ty's picture on his birthday at the exact minute of his birth, 2:11 PM. (Thankfully he was not born at 2:11 AM!)
Here's what he was doing this year at that time.
Hopefully one day in the not too distant future I'll post each of his "birthday minute" pictures for ya'll to see.
