Happy Birthday Anjolie and Mom :)

Today we celebrate two very special birthdays ...Anjolie and my Mom's. I love that Anjolie was born on her birthday...just like my sister was born on her mom's birthday :) Anjolie is now 5 and it is so hard to believe that she has spent over half her life here in Japan ;) We were going to celebrate yesterday...because we are about a day ahead here in Japan...but something happened. Yes, we had a little mischief maker that decided that he would reach his wittle fingers up onto the counter and pull Anjolie's cake down (in the box)...yeah, we found him sitting on the floor with his little hand in the cake box just helping himself to Anjolie's cake-that she hadn't even seen yet! Again...I laughed. So, Anjolie is gettting to celebrate her birthday AGAIN tonight with a new cake :)

Brian leaves next week sometime, please pray for our children (and me ;) ) as this will be the longest they have ever been away from daddy..... I won't be posting much until he leaves....but I will be around to visit a bit, I hope :) Love you all!!-Heather

I love your attitude, Heather. I know that some day your kids will look back at what kind of mother you have been to them and admire your love and patience so much. I admire it now!
Happy Birthday, Anjolie!!

That is so sweet, I was born on my gandma's (mom's mom :P ) 85th Birthday. We are Valentines. She lived to be 99 and we always spent our birthday together. What special memories. Oh and we each got our own cake!

Happy Birthday, Anjolie!

I cannot believe she is that old already! They really do grow up too quick, don't they?

I'll be praying for you!

I can't get over how precious your kids are!

You are just inspiring to me! That reaction to the cake being on the floor...I'd have freaked. You...laugh. That is so awesome! Thank you for grounding me in reality today, that I can just relax and stop sweating the small stuff.

LOL...yeah, Brian didn't laugh...so I didn't get the camera. I was sad for Anjolie, but we all thought it was kinda funny :) we immediately assured her she would have a NEW cake the next day.

Happy Birthday Anjolie! I'm so sad that Brian has to be away from all of you, but I know you are strong and that the Lord will watch over all of you. It will be so wonderful for you to be back in the states soon!!! Lots of love...Karen
