"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

Party Time in Texas: Part 2


We had a "CHOO CHOO TRAIN" birthday party for Little B this year, because he just lo-o-o-oves trains right now. It's hard to find train decor for little boys in America that isn't "Thomas the Tank Engine," so we ended up combining Thomas items with handmade items for decor.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!
I used festive ribbon on my Sseko sandals for the party.
N stayed up late making this for Little B's party. Isn't it pretty awesome?
Sign for the front door
Birthday banners
Front walk-up and patio

A break from decorating to check out a gecko
And do some "work" in the backyard
A special birthday lunch: B loves corn dogs!
Reading birthday cards
Delighting in the ribbon before opening the actual gift
Parallel play at its finest
We took several family pictures ... this first one ended up being the best.

Despite being relatively new to the area, we were thankful to have friends with whom to celebrate our little boy's life. 

Thank you to everyone who came and to everyone who has sent birthday cards and gifts in the mail!
