In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

Mickey Mouse was the theme of Hunter's birthday party.
He joined in when we sang him Happy Birthday.
He really loves music and is quite the little dancer.

~ time to blow out the candle..he did good ~

The cake was really good,
white with raspberry filling. Hunter kept saying "umm.. good gamma"

Grandpa and I purchased a die-cast, very heavy tractor and when we opened it up the directions were a bit complicated so we asked Hunters daddy to help. The night before the party we went over and Nate put it together for us..Thanks Nate..

~Hunter thought he should help too~
~He was pretty excited for it to be finished~

"Hurry up dad"..I want to give it a try

~OH BOY.....what a happy boy~

His feet do not quite reach the pedals but it won't be long. Grandpa helped push him and Hunter did the steering
His other grandparents have a farm so he really likes tractors

Grandma had a turn to push also but it was very hot and humid out so we didn't stay long.
Next week we have Eleanor's Birthday Party so there will be another post for her. I was hoping one of my sisters would share this with mom and dad. They haven't met Hunter yet. Maybe we can bring him for a visit soon.

Wow, Hunter has grown so much. I've never seen a tractor like this. He must LOVE this. Great pictures you have shared. Hard to believe that Ellie is one!
