Andy's 8!

We've been somewhat overwhelmed with life lately, but we try to always put first things first. In November that meant celebrating Andy's birthday. He's an absolute joy and a blessing to this family, so we wanted him to feel honored and asked what he wanted to do. He said "to have friends over, get a dog, and eat chocolate cake". We combined the first two, as one of my best childhood friends came to town and brought her kids and their dog. 
Mom especially enjoyed the dog.
And Andy especially enjoyed the friends, who consisted of my friend's kids and two other families.
John and two of the dads took the kiddos to play laser tag then we grilled out at the house and ate chocolate cake. I think Andy enjoyed himself. What do you think? 
A couple of the boys spent the night to seal the deal as Andy's first official slumber party. He was proud to introduce them to a breakfast of eggs fresh from his very own chickens.
Happy birthday to my great kid!


  1. I'm glad y'all are finding your place back in Texas and God is using you here. Looks like Andy had a great day!

  2. Happy belated birthday to Andy! We think of him every Thanksgiving.

  3. Can't wait to do it again!
