About Me

I have adopted 4 children from a specific orphanage in Eastern Europe and I want to see more children redeemed from that orphanage and brought into families. I want to make sure that the children who are still left behind in that place are never forgotten.

Friday was My Birthday and . . .

I had really hoped for our written referral for my birthday present.  It didn't happen.  :(  I know God is in control.  I did still have a wonderful birthday. 

Denzell and Dayton made me two birthday cakes.  I walked away and they didn't need much help.  I reminded them to spray the pans and I did have to go and get the right beaters to go in the mixer for them.  (It was really cute because I was walking by and saw the beaters go flying across the room.  They had the wrong ones in the mixer and it shot them out.  hehe)  The two of them did the rest!

They beat up 3 boxes of cake mix.  The cakes were WONDERFUL!  I have to say I'm still impressed more than 24 hours later!  They put them in the oven and got them out all on their own.  Then Dayton decided he wanted to write on my cake, so I found him the icing in the tube that he could write with.  I came back to some wonderful looking cakes too!

Dayton did this one for me.  I think that is pretty awesome for the first time someone tries to write with icing!  He is 10 years old and takes life very seriously, so there is no picture of him with the cake.  lol

Denzell iced this cake so wonderfully.  He is 16 and is much more cooperative about pictures.  He's a teen and though he takes life seriously, he's still not nearly as serious as Dayton.  lol

I had a wonderful birthday!  How could I know with this crew of 13 wonderful kids to enjoy??  I just know that when my next 5 are in my arms, every day will be even happier.  Getting to watch each of them on their first birthdays home will be EXTRA special.  :)
