A 6 year old's prayer

Just over a month ago, we celebrated Christopher's 6th birthday.  Tonight we celebrate again, but for something so much bigger.

Over the past year, Chris and I have seen Christopher's curiosity about Jesus and Heaven grow each week.  He always asks questions and wants to know about God in ways that both of us did not experience until much later in life.  Then, yesterday morning, he and I began talking again about Jesus as savior and what that really means.  We have had many conversations about what it means to be a Christian and how Jesus is the only way to God, but this time it was different.  Just before we left for school, Christopher looked at me and in such a way that I knew it was time, told me that he wanted to commit his life to Christ and to live for him.

My heart has been so uplifted the last 36 hours.  He talked with Chris more about it this afternoon and told him that God had put it in his heart to follow Him and he was ready. 

So, tonight we celebrate. We celebrate Christopher's taking that step and confessing that Jesus is his Lord and Savior. We celebrate that tonight he has died to sin, and gained life everlasting in Christ.  We celebrate the way this little boy will be used to change lives and hearts in the years to come. 

Together we prayed and rejoiced over God's kingdom growing before our eyes. We know that this will not be easy for Christopher, but we know that God has called him and that he heard that call.

But these are recorded so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.  John 20:31

Celebrate and rejoice with us!

Aiden's Half Birthday

Aiden turned 6 months old last week while were on vacation.  He had a great time celebrating his half birthday while at Hollywood Studios at Disney World. Got to see a parade, the  Muppets 3-D and Lego world.  To say he loved it would be, well it would only be a guess, but I think he did! 

 Happy Half Birthday!

I can't believe he is already 6 months old.  In the last 2 months, he has started eating, or should I say devouring, solid foods. So far his favorites are avocados and bananas.  He has also cut two teeth on bottom now. Which makes it very painful when he pulls one of our fingers into his mouth.

He is also a very "spoiled" little boy. He has a big brother that will not let one second go by of Aiden being upset. It is quite funny and very sweet. Christopher will run himself ragged trying to make sure Aiden is happy.

We have all had so much fun with him these last few months. He is always laughing and smiling, and also making sure that if we aren't paying attention him, we get back to doing just that.  His personality comes out more and more each day and it sure is going to be a fun one!

His  very own Mickey ears!
