What a treat to get to celebrate Isaiah's 3rd birthday in our hometown! We had a few days in Lynden in between the two conferences in Bellevue, WA so we pulled off a fabulous birthday party at Taya's parents house. Most missionaries only get home once every four years, so for us it was pretty special to get back home to celebrate Isaiah's birthday with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Isaiah loves Thomas the Train right now, so Taya made him a cool cake and we had Thomas hats and noise makers. The only thing Isaiah really wanted to do for his birthday was to have "family band" sing praise songs together. Here's the worship set he selected: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, God Is So Good, Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee, and Come On Ring Those Bells (yes, the Christmas song). It was such a blast to sing together, eat cake, and visit. What a great birthday gift God gave us!
