Celebrating Michael’s Birthday!

The cake was complete with candle, cacti and coyotes!

The theme for Michael’s birthday was cowboys! When Michael came in early in the morning and saw the decorations he said he had just been thinking about how the Israelites told the Egyptians that they considered themselves cowboys! Gen. 46:34 “Thy servants’ trade had been about cattle from our youth even until now.” It was extra fun to have Grandpa and Grandma join the party in their cowboy hats. We thank the Lord for Michael and are encouraged by his example of following the Lord and loving His ways. His birthday card read: “Wherever you may range, may the Lord bless you to be what He would be and to do what He would do. Happy Trails.”

The cowgirls......and the cowboys!The snowman even wore a hat!The card David made for Michael was one of a kind!Shorty stopped by to say "Howdy, partner!"These cactus cucumbers were really fun to make with toothpicks!Ready to dig into the cake after a good days work on the Staddon homestead.
