My favorite granddaughter turned four yesterday. Four is a pretty special age, one of my favorites. She's a spunky little thing. She picked out her own birthday outfit which I think says a thing or two about her personality. I've decided Bumblebee Batgirl would make an absolutely terrific, not to mention completely adorable, superhero. Just imagine the adventures! (If she ever shows up out there I'll know you've been visiting me...)
We decided to do cake and ice cream here last night and the kids headed straight to the trampoline as soon as they arrived.I went out to see if they were being properly supervised and found a grandfather on the apparatus. I decided they were fairly safe so long as they were the ones doing the bouncing.
We enjoyed a bit of ice cream and some Candy Land Cupcakes and then headed out back for a few leftover fireworks. Everyone was sufficiently impressed, even Lucas. Apparently the mosquitoes were also impressed, but not necessarily by the sparkly show. They were relentless and neither smoke nor bug repellent kept them a bay. Even so it was a good evening and someone out there (I think it was Bethany) declared it the best birthday ever!
In other news, Oreo appears to be doing better. He stops by for a drop of milk with a bit of Silver Biotics in it each morning. His wounds aren't completely healed, but he's getting around easier and his eyes are looking brighter again. He even comes by to sit on my lap when I let him in the house.
I am a work in the hands of the Master Potter. I pray that His fingerprints are all over me as I walk through this life. This is my journey. Thank you, Jesus, for not giving up on me.
I am mom to seven beautiful grown ups and grandma to ten beautiful grandchildren.
