The Sweetie Princess is 4 Years OLD!

 Evie Joy started the day by making her own birthday brownie cake!  
She loved it!  She was so sweet and thankful for every little detail "Oh Mommy thank you for that cool Star Wars tablecloth!"
She choose to go swimming at the big hotel in our city.  There were only about 5 other people there so it was very peaceful and fun!  

Judah even got in for a bit!  Evie Joy loved that! 
 Then she choose dinner and ice cream at Dicos, a fast food chicken place with a little playground and below, dancing! 

 We came home and unwrapped a few gifts, some Mega Blocks and Star WArs shirt!  Again, she was super thankful- love her sweet heart!  
Love my sweet little girl!  Had so much fun with her on her special day!

 Blowing out her candle and then she was excited to cut her own cake! Ha, should have seen the piece she cut for brother! 
Evie Joy has been growing and learning so much these days!  I am especially proud of what a wonderful big sister she is. She loves to help with baby Judah.  She sings to him and puts lotion on him., rocks him, she helps give him a bath.  She is so excited when he does anything with us as a family.   She is such a good helper.  She helps bag and weigh all the fruits and veggies at the store/market.  She loves to help sort and clean around the house.  And she is now sleeping on the top bunk!  Wow!  She is growing so much as a woman of prayer.  LIke today, she said Mommy I prayed for the bus to come and it did!  I love that about her!  She would pray for Big Daddy everyday and then when Poppe was sick she prayed over him too.

JUDAH 1 month!

 Judah turned one month August 16- we went for a doc visit a few days early since we were getting ready to leave the country!  He was almost 11 pounds already at his visit!
 I am trying to get sweet Judah to enjoy his paci- sometimes he tries it out!
 I cannot take enough sweet sleeping baby pics!  i love those cheeks!

 This is Judah on his first adventure flying!  He did great on the planes- 4 total- he just did not like security or lines in the airports!  lots of screaming there!  Here is he sleeping on a little head pillow!
 He is super chunk looking baby here!  oh my goodness!

 I think he looks so big - like 4-6 months size here!  I just can't believe how my tiny infant is so big already- sad for Mommy!  but i still enjoy my snuggles!

Super Hero Kind of Family

I want a Star Wars Ice cream cake!

Denise had an ice cream cake for her early birthday with us so Evie Joy asked for a Star Wars Ice Cream cake!  So, we did this in the states with family before we traveled back overseas!  She loved it!
I super love this photo! 

She was so excited she got a Millennium Falcon for her birthday!

Swimming Fun!

I love how they would jump in together!  
Evie Joy was so fun here!  She said oh mommy i'm going to say true things about God and then she'd jump in- One jump she said "Jesus is the Lord God Almighty of everything!" And the next jump she said "Millennium Falcon!" ha like those 2 are related- only in her world!

ABC's Attributes of God Study!

We have been studying about the Worth and Greatness of God- a Children's study from Desiring God.  The kids understand as the True things about God study! 
We love how Evie Joy says 'Incomprehensible" ha!  
It is awesome though how she explains what it means- that we can only understand a little about God. 
I've enjoyed hearing the children recite over and over the many truths about God in the lessons that we did!  

 Yawah- He is Lord!
Glorious- He is the Greatest and Worth the Most!
Eternal- No beginning and No end!
Creator- He created the heavens and the earth. He spoke and it was.
Wise- He always does what is right!
Almighty- All the might and power!
Attentive- He is always watching!
Sovereign- Does what He wants!
Self- Sufficient- Doesn't need any help!
Faithful- If He says it, He will do it!
Understanding-Knows we are weak!
