I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

Daddy's Birthday

We recently celebrated Steve's birthday. It is interesting to see what ideas the kids come up with each year for their dad.
They all went in together this year and bought a book about Egypt for him. He loves anything Egypt and this was a perfect choice.

The gift from me was simple but exactly what he wanted.

Then there was the creative portion of the gift. The kids all headed out to the work area scrap wood in hand. This creation was the collaberation of Bub and Lil. A birdhouse.

A very large birdhouse which is why it is sitting in a flower bed at the moment. We need to find a good spot and hang it properly so it doesn't fall. They had no adult help on this and we were quite impressed. Em and Els are still working on their creation. Lij made a little rocket airplane out of wood and he picked out the shapes himself. It is residing in his room as he asked his dad if he would be willing to share with him. His daddy was more than happy to share.
Happy Birthday hon!
