This is the announcement for Josiah’s party. What do you think? It’s going to be in a postcard. The other side will be this:
I have been changing my mind over and over about the party theme. I’m not doing a water theme anymore. I have decided to do a monkey theme, and perhaps a whole jungle theme. When I say themes, I really mean the cake. I’m not an all-out kinda decorator mom. But should I do a whole jungle, and make little animals on a cake? Or make a jungle looking cake, and use small plastic jungle animals on it? Or make several small cakes; a monkey, a bear, a tiger, etc? I’m still thinking on it! Procrastinator is my middle name, you know!! Anyway the monkey is NECESSARY, because Josiah is truly a monkey!! Last night, he climbed up the slide and went down it on his own. I’m assuming it wasn’t the first time, and I’d just never caught him doing it before. But I was shocked! The boy isn’t even one yet! And it’s not a tiny slide. I remember being nervous about Jeremiah going down it at 20 months!!!!
Speaking of whom…Today, after his nap-time (which he failed to sleep through) Jeremiah said, “Mama, I pray?”
and I said, “You want to pray right now?”
“Sure, go ahead!”
“Dear God, thank You Mama, and Papa, and Gramma, and Grampa and Jo-Jo….a-men.”
I said, “Thank you so much, Sweetie! That was so nice!”
He replied, “You’re VERY welcome!”
Does he not melt your heart!!!!!????
I am just INCREDIBLY blessed. Every minute when I look at these boys, even at those moments when they are driving me up the wall, I just can’t believe they are mine. I love them so much. I am SO blessed I can’t even begin to describe it.
I don’t mention it enough, but it is never far from my thoughts. The Lord has blessed me so much. An amazing, wonderful, loving, hardworking husband. A family that loves me. And two beautiful, incredible, sweet, adorable, loving boys. How could i ever ask for more?
But you know, somehow, I do. I still see myself having at LEAST two more kids. Seriously! I am ready to get pregnant again! I am not crazy, I promise. Just please be praying for us financially. I am no longer taking bcp. I just can’t do it. And financially, Jerry doesn’t think we could afford more. But it is on my heart to have more children. and let’s face it – I’m not getting any younger. So please pray that it will work out, via the Lord’s will.
