Stella's BirthDAY

Stella's birthDAY was on a Sunday this year, and that morning was also the 48 hour mark for mom after her umbilical hernia repair.  Turns out being pregnant 4 times can really be tough on the old belly button.  I had evacuated to Mawmaw and Pawpaw's house after surgery for my recovery, and our plan was to evacuate me yet again to Mawmaw Shirley's so that I would be safe from any unintentional injuries that the kids might visit upon me. Even though I was still feeling rotten, I missed my munchkins and hung around so I could see my birthday girl and the rest of my babies.  Dad did a great job at solo parenting all weekend, and even managed to take the kids to church and pack play clothes for their visit to the grandparents afterwards.  Move over, John Guillory, there's a new Mr. Mom in town!  
As always, the siblings got gifts from the grandparents for Stella's birthday.  It's just what they do.  Corinne was overjoyed with her surprise...
Watts may have just been a little overwhelmed...

Cille was...
ECSTATIC!

Finally it was Stella's turn...


The wall hanging behind her looks like moose antlers...





And her big gift, complete with funny faces from Cille...

Mawmaw had also gotten the kids a piñata...



Everybody took a whack at it...




Stella had a wonderful day celebrating with her loved ones.  It's hard to believe that she is already nine years old.  As her daddy so devastatingly put it, her time in our home is basically half over.  We pray that we are guiding her to grow in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.  Please join us in praying that God would guide Stella in His perfect will for her life.
