It's Another Birthday Blog!!! 14 & 6

Happy Birthday ladies!

It was super hot and sunny so we had the perfect
party eating watermelon ,hamburgers, and sprinkler fun!

Siblings ;-)

To top off the perfect birthday,
MiKayla got to have her very own birthday
sleep over at Gramma's all by herself.
She had a blast!
Strawberry cake for MiKayla and 
Mississippi Mud Pie for Kirstin

Thankfully neither complains about their joint birthday party.
After 6 of them I think they like it!

So blessed to be their mama.

Kirstin is growing into a mature young woman every day.
She is so beautiful and smart.
Terrified of bugs
and slightly a the good kinda way:)

MiKayla is sensitive and kind hearted. 
A beautiful delicate flower.
She still rides in the cart at the grocery store and loves
to wear ruffle socks with her sandlas.
She is a little princess.

We just officially registered MiKayla for kindergarten
and Kirstin is going into high school.
Seriously we are in shock!
I want to soak up all the summer memories for 
our sweet little MiKayla before her school journey begins.
I'm honestly not sure how I just became a mom
to a high school student but I'm a little scared.
Send Help!

Purple Hair Don't Care 'Cause Summers almost Here!

Three things I know:
1-a few boxes of fun hair dye makes some giggly happy girls
2-Let them pick out whatever they want to wear 
and you can see your childs personality
3- Let them choose their own  poses and suddenly your children are models

It's Passover Yall!

The Passover Exodus is the watershed event in Jewish history. Indeed, it is a momentous event for all mankind. Many Believers don’t fully comprehend the Passover in the context of the awesome atoning work of God. You cannot fully appreciate our redemption in the Messiah until you understand the ordinance of Passover. All the biblical Feasts and observances were foreshadows of the redemptive work that the Messiah would ultimately accomplish. The gospel of John uses the Passover as the backdrop for his retelling of the atonement we have received through Jesus our Messiah.
The apostle Paul wrote, “For Messiah, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed” (1 Cor. 5:7). In his mind and the minds of the authors of the Gospels, a clear prophetic connection existed between the death, burial, and resurrection of the Messiah and Yeshua’s ultimate fulfillment of the Passover.
The word Passover comes from the Hebrew “Pesach,” which means “to pass over.” Interestingly, the Aramaic word for lamb is “talya,” which can mean either lamb or servant. The passage in Isaiah 53, referred to as “The Suffering Servant,” describes Yeshua as a Lamb led to the slaughter, and He is referred to as “the Lamb” not less than 34 times in the New Testament. The parallels between the Passover lamb and Yeshua are extraordinary......

Our Passover Seder
Kaveri and I made chocolate dipped sprinkle covered matzah.

Happy Pesach!

The Littlest Siblings

She's always in his stuff and in his way.
He's a little on the rough side and is
quick to tell her "no no no."

He truly is her big brother and sometimes
won't even let the other sisters near her.
He will not go to sleep without her.
Very protective and loving.
He walks behind her on the stairs
and he won't let anyone pass her as he patiently
waits for her to get to the top.
He leads her into adventure and she 
happily follows.

She is his Ella and he is her Bub-bub.
Such a sweet relationship that is 
growing between the two.
I am grateful.
