Happy Birthday, Nate!

Nate turns 6 today!

10 things I love about Nate:
  1. He's fun-loving
  2. He loves to joke and make people laugh
  3. Nate is one of the friendliest kids I know
  4. He's a math whiz
  5. He eats raw red bell peppers with me
  6. He likes to do things the unconventional way
  7. He's a great party planner
  8. He's my firstborn
  9. He's strong willed
  10. He thinks I'm cool

His party was on Friday. We invited everyone to come at 12 noon. At 12:02, when no one had shown up yet, I found him outside in the street, barefoot...

Forlorn and dejected. "Why aren't they coming, Mommy?"

Friends... (check out Abi in her dancing dress. Thank you, Aunt Ella!)

But, before long, everyone arrived and the party started.

And cake. The perfect combo for a 6 year-old!

The highlight of my day Friday was Nate, coming through the front door, after an outing with his daddy, holding a small bouquet of real, imported roses! As he handed them to me he said, "Thank you for giving birth to me, Mommy".

It was also great to see the look on Nate's face as he opened his presents. God gave him the "desires of His heart" (Nate's words) : A two-wheel bike (from his American Grandparents) and a CD player (from his Mongolian grandparents).
