Happy Birthday Tate!!

Thursday was Tate’s sixth birthday!

Our days right now have been a whirlwind, but we purposed to stop and celebrate our precious boy!

Keeping with tradition, Tate chose a meal and dessert for his birthday.

We had baked chicken, asparagus wrapped in bacon (it never gets old!), roasted potatoes, and sautéed onions.

It was yummy!

We also invited some of our favorite people over to celebrate with us!

It was a big circle day!!

Isn’t River getting so big!! Already nine weeks old!!

After we ate, Tate had two gifts to open.

First, one from Hannah!

Our wrapping paper tote was already packed in the semi for the move, so Blake got creative in wrapping Tate’s gift!

Tate chose grasshopper pie for dessert – which is really just a mint chocolate chip ice cream cake with a chocolate crust!

Guess where our candles were too?


In that semi.

But Hannah found one in her car – even though it was kind of melted – we got it lit!

Desperate times call for desperate measures!

I cannot believe our little man is six years old!

He still wears a size 3T shorts and 4T shirts!

Tiny but mighty!!

What a privilege to be this cheerful young warrior’s Mama!

It was just two years ago today that Blake, Grant and Tate arrived home from China and I held this precious boy for the very first time!

Thank you, Jesus, for this very precious gift.

Happy Birthday, Tate Owen!

We are so thankful to celebrate you!!

We love you to the moon and back!
