Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Finn's Birthday Videos

Today, we went down to Denver to celebrate Finn's birthday with Bill, Karen, Jeff, Kelli, Bryan, Jenny, Sophie, Clara and Sam. Karen was so sweet and prepared a sack lunch for all the kids to have a picnic out on blankets on the lawn. Everyone got a cute flower shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwich, capri suns, pudding, applesauce, string cheese, fruit snacks, Cars plates and napkins, and a hotwheels car! It was so thoughtful! I loved it! Thank you MomPom! For the adults, Karen made yummy wondersandwich. If you don't know what that is, maybe she will post it on her blog. It is so yummy and fattening...full of cream cheese. Then, after much running around, Finn took a break to open his presents from Granny and Papa (Kelli and Bryan already gave Finn his Handy Manny tool box for his birthday). He got clothes, Percy and the Sodor Library train car, a Cars sippy cup, and two builder books. He loved them! He played with the trains all the way home and then brought his hotwheels car with him to the store this evening.
I was able to go through the Einstein Bagels drive-thru on the way home (lucky for me there is one on the way out of town from Bill and Karen's) and get a delicious Frozen Cafe Mocha. Love it! It's probably good that we don't have Einstein Bagels in Ft. Collins because it makes it that much more of a treat when I get to have one.

I finally figured out how to post bigger videos in the body of my blog. So, here are some videos from Finn's birthday of the farm, the cake and the presents!
