Happy Birthday Yohn!

I know I said I'd post these yesterday, but then I fell asleep watching a movie last night and did not get around to it. Oh well, it's only the day after his birthday. Here's what we did on his special day:

First the presents first thing in the morning. The kids did not want to wait until later in the day as Bethany was chomping at the bit to tell him what they got for him. We got him a new "tea mug" and this matching Grinch and hat shirt.

Before being given the responsibility of pastoring the little kids, we used to help out under Gene in Master BLAST (children's church). They have birthday traditions there that must be upheld if your birthday falls on a Sunday so Gene and all the kids in church came crashing into the preschool. First the singing of the birthday song (look carefully and you can see both Elisha and Bethany mouths wide open singing as loudly as possible)...

...complete with all the CHA, CHA, CHA's.

AND then the birthday pie in the face, especially for the birthday boy!

He looks good in whipped cream, doesn't he?

After all the older kids had left it was time to get service started for the smaller kids. This Sunday Yohn practiced using his guitar for praise and worship time and the kids loved it.

And yes, he wore his Grinch clothes to church. Special days call for special clothes, ya know.

We finished the day off by going out to eat and then having a celebratory piece of cheesecake.

Hope your birthday was as special as you, My Love! My there be many, many more.
