Nehemiah’s “Tomorrow” is Finally Today

If you were fly on a wall at our home you would have heard, for the last two weeks {at least}  Mr. Nehemiah asking, “My birthday tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow?”  {Meaning not tomorrow, but the next day or the next day?}

Made us giggle.

Nehemiah’s such a treasure.

And so finally it was
tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow…
you get the idea – ha!

His joy was unmatchable and he has been planning what he
wants to eat and do for {literally} months.

Breakfast in bed – Crepes with strawberries, homemade hot fudge and whipped cream.

That’s a lot of crepes to make and carry up to their bedroom.

Skyping in with missionary big sister Emma from Africa…..

Lunch at Panda…
A glimpse into just how kindhearted, loving and generous this little guy is….

He was eating his Panda Express lunch and stopped.  

Ya’ have to understand, this kid is the bottomless pit and eats non-stop…well, except when he gets to go to Panda and his brothers and sisters didn’t – and then
he stops, mid-stream and tucks the rest away.


So he could share the remainder with them.

What a guy!

Dinner is homemade chicken wings and our *famous*
homemade ice cream cake for dessert….

We cannot ever thank the Lord enough for bringing Nehemiah to our family.

He sets the lonely in families…
Psalm 68:6

    1. Oh, if only I could peel it off and give it to you. It's what was here and will be covered this next week. The boys want soft blue…and it is really dark…although a 'nifty' color. No clue what it is though. Rustish something or other.
