January Birthday's

This month my Mom and younger brother each
had a birthday.

We hosted a "Zoo" themed party in celebration. :-)

(Here's a picture of the "Zoo entrance".)

And this is the entrance table. A scripture was posted above, taken from Genesis, describing the creation of the animals. :-)

My Aunt and two cousins brought some bear shaped sugar cookies that they had made to share at the gathering. They also made a cage for the bears to travel in! :-) The sign on the cage read:

"Bears Sleeping Shhh!"

What a creative idea! :-)

In this picture my brother's and cousins played a game like Bingo only instead of looking for number's the player's listen for sounds and then put a marker on the correct animal or object the sound came from.

And here's the cake...........:-)

Time for presents!

Picture time!

With the beginning of a new year, may we all continue to grow closer in our walk with the Lord each day!


"How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers."
Psalm 1:1-3
