I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Zion's new bike

 Poor Zion. His birthday got completely skipped here in blogland. It almost got skipped in real life, with the craziness of both a move and Christmas, but we managed to sneak in a quick party for him.
 Since I was a failure of a mom and didn't post anything about how much he grew, or what a great year he had, or even any pictures of his birthday party.... I will have to insert a few pictures now, a month later!

 He got a new bike for his birthday. It's an inconvenient time of year to have a birthday, but a bike was desired, and needed. Warmer weather will come eventually, and for now we sneak in quick rides when we can.

His face when he saw it was priceless! 
Proud new owner of a bike
...and some cars too!
Zion had a jungle themed birthday party.
Although, it turned into more of a Panda party.
 We made adorable furry pandas out of miles of yarn.

MILES of yard! 

She was just too cute not to add.
We had a panda cake.
made by my amazing mother in law. Thanks Ellen!
 I am still not quite use to boys...
He devoured the head! ewwww
We even sent the guests home with a panda cookie. 

 Panda's were definitely the theme of the night!

Since then Zion has had a few chances to enjoy his bike. 

His first "wipeout"

It may be cold, but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop!

Love the shot of him eating the head. Having boys around is so much fun. Makes me miss mine!

Your "last minute" party had a ton more going on than ours that I actually plan out, ha ha.
It was so fun!

A bike is always a fun gift!! I can still remember my first bike!! Not sure if you are down this way, yet, but Callaway Gardens has free admission Jan/Feb. and there are tons of bike/walking trails.
