December 13th

Happy 8th Birthday Andrew

One thing I love about my kids is that their interests stay constant from year to year.  Andrew requested a CARS birthday this year.

8 chocolate cupcakes for our 8 year old!

Story behind the picture....My camera wouldn't take every time Andrew blew out the candle.  I had them recreate this picture so many times trying to get that shot.  By the end, neither Brett or Andrew could do it with out laughing.

homemade gifts from your brother are the best!  Don't you love the wrapping on this gift.  Only 8 and almost 9 year old boys would think of going to the recycling bin to pick their wrapping paper.

Thanks Grandpa and Grandma for the new jammies.

Caroline is crying in this picture because she couldn't find the card that she made for Andrew.  Luke is crying because he is over the birthday party!  Got to love birthday parties when you have a big family.  Someone is usually missing (Jake), someone is crying, and the rest are enjoying!
Dear Andrew,
We are loving seeing how God continues to work in your young life.  You are doing so well in school this year.  Homeschooling for you is a blessing we thank God for often.  This year you continue to love being outdoors, exploring and making things.  You love minecraft and legos.  You want to be a policeman when you grow up.  God has blessed you with a strong personality that I pray into everyday. I know God will use it for good as you grow.  I pray that you always look to Him for your direction in life.  That you will continue to grow into a man who loves God and has a heart to serve Him in whatever capacity He gives you.  I pray you will love your family well this year.  That you will have a kind heart that learns to love others more than yourself.
Happy 8th Birthday Andrew!
We love you
This is the verse I pray for you.
"Be strong and courageous, do not be frightened and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
Joshua 1:9
