Today is the day for celebrating our special boy; ETHAN GREGORY, who has blessed our lives in so many ways during the last 12 years. What a gift, to be able to see this sweet young man grow before our very eyes.
Honestly, he’s been so much fun. Our happy, smiling, little boy….not quite so little now.
I’ve been up since 5:30. Seth was up at 6. By the time I was done feeding Seth his oatmeal it was 6:30 and everyone else was up (half hour earlier than normal). There was a lot of excitement over Ethan’s birthday so we gathered ’round the table and watched him open his presents. His main gift was a Nintendo DS, and I just had to take this picture of ALL six of them being entertained by the game, at the same time.
And, I promised to show you the gift Grace made her brother.
She created it entirely on her own.
It’s a stuffed doggie, made of felt, with sewn on felt spots, and eyes. She told me later, “That old saying is true! It IS more fun to give, then to get!”
The old saying: “…..You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” Acts 20:35
She also helped Davy make a sleeping bag and pillow for the doggie.
I believe this handmade dog has a lot of charm.
But not as much charm as our E!
Happy Birthday, Ethan!
