Parker turned 4 today! I set an alarm and got a photo at 12:10 AM, the time he was born. The light usually doesn't wake him up, but he was trying to cover his eyes a bit.
Morning offered a better opportunity for a smile! This was the first year I wasn't going to be with him all day, so I was a bit bummed. We also are getting out first winter storm which caused a terrible morning commute. Luckily it took a break for the afternoon and I got home in time for the evening festivities.
This was our regular night for our church life group. We planned to go to Perkins beforehand and invited the group to join us. They were all for it and we just decided to have our whole group there. We didn't do any official Bible study, but had some great fellowship. Our amazing group members also came with gifts for Parker. He got some new animal toys and a gift card to Target.
It's not a birthday without sprinkles on the pancakes!
We finished with a bit of pie (free pie Mondays) with a candle on top!
We feel so blessed to be a part of this group. They have become a lot like family and they have shown so much generosity to Parker and us. Happy birthday Parker! We love you so much and feel honored to be your parents. We can't wait to celebrate more this weekend!
