2010 Week 21: Birthday Week

The celebration began at Monday Night Meal. Chef-son had a gift waiting in the center of the big table with a humorous greeting.

And after the meal a cake with only 18 candles and the group crazy song, of course.

Tuesday the 18th, I started the day with some of that fine Alliance World coffee.

Wednesday, Skye found a baby chipmunk and revived it with some peanutbutter on a toothpick.

Sadly, he escaped in their house the next day and was later found dead.

Thursday Sam brought another birthday gift--a book I had asked for, also coffee related, quite a fascinating story by the one who started Alliance World Coffees. I happen to have a photo from a couple weeks ago of author and book.

Friday we went to Elijah's pre-school graduation--a sweet program and a fun family time.
The children sang and then in pairs quoted a Bible verse. His was Genesis 9:13.

Meanwhile, Auntie Leah and Uncle Jimmy enjoying (?) baby Zion.

Today, I got to enjoy his sweet kisses...



...when he wasn't watching Elijah play T-Ball.

yea for birthdays! glad yours was so great!

when I was young, my brother and I found 3 baby chipmunks. we nursed them to health and kept them as pets for a while. We ended up releasing them but one would come back every year for about 3 years. great picture.

I need to look up this coffee.

love those baby kisses!!!

Love the whole "18th birthday" thing. I may have to take on that idea for myself. I would get to be "17." Yes!!

So sad about the chipmunks. Those have to be among the cutest animals in the world. Seriously. I freak out with excitement when we spot one in our flower beds!

You and your family are sweet. But you already knew that, didn't you?
