Happy Birthday to Me

The kids baked me this birthday cake on their own–and since they didn’t have enough of or the right number of candles solved the problem their own way.  Between the individuals and the numbers, plus bugs bunny as a 1 there are 34 candles. 🙂  And it was excellent cake.

They also made me a crown and themselves hats, set the table with flowers and a sheet for a table cloth, and we had a meal together (Chinese–mostly Trader Joes variety).

Finally I did this based on a meme I found via Stumbleupon.

Draw a ten panel comic about what you were doing ten years ago. Put pen straight to paper – no pencil, no computer, no planning, no starting again if you make a mistake. Simply draw, scan, publish. Tag some people who you’d like to see do the meme too. Oh and if you want to do it even if you haven’t been tagged you are most welcome!”

After some consideration I decided to try it–it seemed like the perfect thing for a birthday. 🙂  I realize the above is too small to read so if you want to try to read my chicken scratch you will have to do so on Photobucket since it was the only way I could get it readable.

So happy birthday to me. 🙂

Sunday Praise Doodle: children

A doodle of Essie from a picture of Essie I caught yesterday.  (She rolls her eyes a lot.  She is 8.5. :))  I wanted to use the following verse for this weeks.

3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.


But Rachel saw the painting and insisted that the one that follows was much more appropriate. 🙂

6 Train  a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Proverbs 22:6

I’ll let you decide. 🙂  Which do you think is more suited, or do you have a better idea?
