Both of our sons were born in January. We celebrated our oldest son Josh’s birthday early this past Friday. After our trip with Josh and Laura to England in September we’ve been carrying a British theme through our celebrations. We met for dinner at The Three Lions Pub and then came home for cake and presents.
We had a good time celebrating Josh. He has added so much joy to our lives and we thank God for him.
Joshua’s actual birthday is on the 19th. He will be at Lakeside Bible Camp directing Junior High Winter camp.
Today we are sending off packages and cards across the world and country. Our Dan’s birthday is on the 16th and we won’t be able to celebrate face to face this year. We’re sending another care package to Afghanistan. We are so thankful for the U.S.A.’s APO/FPO post office service that allows us to ship packages for such a reasonable rate. We pay a little over $14.00 for a Large Flate Rate Box! Our favorite little almost 6 year old in Texas will be getting a package in the mail soon, too.
We have been promised some dry days…maybe we’ll even have some sun breaks! I’m excited. What are you looking forward to this week?

Happy Birthday to the Boys of Winter! That’s what we call our January boys.
Aw – your family has the best smiles ever! Happy Birthdays all around. Hope that package heading overseas is received with much appreciation and warmth from home!
Happy Birthday, Josh! We have 3 birthdays from Christmas ’til Jan 7! So, I know abt those winter birthdays.
So many happy occasions – I hadn’t realized that Hope is also a Jan baby! I will be celebrating my birthday later this month.
We are supposed to have rain, and then the 2nd round of polar vortex would move in, although in a less severe measure.
Happy Birthday to your sons! That cake looks so good.
It looks like he quite enjoyed his early celebration. I love that we share a birthday!
