Our Elijah Bear turned 11 on Monday and I'm pretty sure he had a fantastic day. I let the boys skip school and we headed to OKC to the Science Museum. He wanted Honey Sesame Chicken and Apple Pie for his birthday dinner. Such a sophisticated eater!
This little boy is full of life. He is athletic, strong, enjoys doing all kind of things with his brother, loves to antagonize his sister, talks about history with his daddy and drinks coffee with me. (Oh yeah, I started drinking coffee about six months ago!)
I want Elijah to say with confidence the meaning of his name, "My God is Lord". I know the Lord has great plans for his life and I pray Elijah would seek Him for direction. We love this red-headed little boy so much and had a great day making him feel special.
Waking up to birthday balloons!
He wanted a shopping spree to Academy as his gift. He has played all week with his purchases so this is the way to do gifting from here on for all future birthdays.
Eleven candles in a apple pie, he can't wait to dig in.
This group headed to Stigler for a overnight trip to the Pit. It's one of Elijah's favorite spots to spend time outside doing "manly" stuff. He's so much like his daddy and I love that they are creating memories together doing what they love.
