Happy Birthday Ethan!

Well, the post is late but the celebrationg was on time :) It seems I am not a very good blogger, but better late than never, right? Right??

Ethan is 7. He's such a big boy, I can hardly believe so much time has passed. It's been nearly 3 1/2 years since his "Gotcha Day". Which means he's been a part of our family just about as long as he was missing.

Ethan loves to be a helper to both his mom and his dad, and whenever I am cooking he is right there asking what he can do. His smile is radiant, he's full of little boy mischief, and we love him lots. We are so glad God brought Ethan into our family.

In honor of Ethan's birthday, the whole family trekked into "the city" for a delicious breakfast at Mimi's. Later on, he and daddy went hiking. They were looking for a trail that daddy had heard much about. They didn't find the trail they were looking for, and ended up on a very narrow one, but had a great time.

They came home to a dinner of the birthday boy's request. Orange chicken, rice, and jello. Then a few presents and the seeking of God's blessing on Ethan's life by daddy.

Hailey made a yummy cake. It seems she's taken over baking duties lately. Yay! Ty thought the cake was excellent, he wanted to be sure to get every last drop. And it took Ethan 6 tries to blow out all the candles. Good thing we aren't superstitious :)

It was a great day, and we are grateful to the Lord for his many blessing. We love you Ethan, Happy Birthday!
