"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do.
God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know,
and holds us responsible to act." Prov 24:12

Sasha's First Party... Just His Family

Sasha had two birthday parties, like all our boys do. One with just us the actual day of his birthday and then a party with friends and family on the weekend. What a blessing it was to finally be able to celebrate his birthday with him! To celebrate his life the way it should be! I simply cannot explain in words what that meant to us. Here are some of the pics from his actual birthday on October 19th.

Sasha absolutely loves my mom's homemade spaghetti so I made it for him on his special day. He was quite happy!

The first time we were finally able to sing a proper Happy Birthday to him. What a beautiful moment that was! Sasha is not much of a cake fan but he loves ice cream so we celebrated with some special ice cream on this night.

He is not quite sure what to make of this strange stick of fire in his special ice cream!

Brooks thoroughly enjoying the ice cream! He always knows how to make a mess... always!

Studying his new "race car" socks. He LOVES cars, trucks... basically any moving vehicle!

Thoroughly checking out his new car from his mama and daddy.

He really liked this musical card from his Grandpa Gil and Grandma Lee.

Enjoying his new custom sleeping bag, sized just for him. Thanks Gram & Pa!

Enjoying all his new stuff but as you can clearly see, he did not want to take his eyes off of his new car! Boy, does he love that car! He is very detail oriented and he just loves checking out every single piece of this car... every single detail. It is pretty cute!
