Thank you for being born...

"Birthdays need to be celebrated. 
I think it is more important to celebrate a birthday
than a successful exam, a promotion, or a victory.
On a birthday we do not say:
'Thanks for what you did, or said, or accomplished.'
No, we say:
 'Thank you for being born and being among us.'"
~~Henri Nouwen

Shawna chose cinnamon rolls for her birthday "cake"

Travis chose apple pie!

Joshua chose cheesecake!

I am so thankful for these son in law, daughter and nephew. 
We celebrated their birthdays this month!

Wow! My birthday was this month too. I had regular white cake with gooey icing. I think birthdays are important too. BLessings and what a wonderful family!
