Asher's Birthday Party
Saturday March 18th, 2017
Random pictures of the party...
Y'all, I forgot the candles. CAN YOU BELIEVE? I finally remember party bags and everything, and I forgot the dang candles! I felt so bad! But Ash was such a good sport about it!
Macie even got a gift from Asher's friend, Kylie, for her birthday.
We did another gymnastics themed party. There aren't many choices around here, especially this time of the year, and this is a great way for kids to run around and let out energy. I was panicking because for whatever reason, I was late in getting invites out. They were sent out Tuesday and his party was Saturday. Thankfully, he had a GREAT turn out! Asher had a lot of fun and that is what matters! Afterwards, he played at Kylie's house for a few hours, then she came back home with us for a sleepover.
Asher's 9th Birthday
Monday March 20th, 2017
That sweet baby pic really makes my ovaries hurt!
He wanted me to post this comparison pic instead. Aw!
Oh my Asher baby! Where has the time gone?! I cannot believe he is 9! I requested the evening off so I could spend time with him. Afterschool he enjoyed a cupcake and played. He wanted Applebee's for dinner so we did that. I am so grateful for this fella. Here's what I posted on Facebook:
"9 years ago today, Asher John came into the world. Born 3 weeks early, he was my biggest baby. He came into this world silent, not even a wimper. Once roughed around, he gave one "wahh" before going back sleep. This child slept through the night, basically from the start. He was the most easy going and happy baby you've ever met.
Asher has the sweetest disposition. He is a sensitive boy, always feeling for others before himself. He is wise beyond his years. He is so flippin' smart too, he teaches me things! Asher will randomly hug me, will tell me how beautiful I am. He builds me, his siblings and friends up and encourages us. He is so full of energy and strength, yet so gentle and sweet.
With each child, I grew spiritually and received a different message. With Ash, that message was forgiveness. I experienced the forgiveness of God in a tangible way during his pregnancy. I experienced grace, mercy and pure joy in a new way. I will never forget how faithful God was during Asher's pregnancy and delivery.
Anyways. I am so grateful for this not-so-little guy. To say I am proud of him would be an understatement.
Happy Birthday, Ash! I love you like a fat kid loves cake"
