Birthday Boy & Girl

Yesterday we celebrated Matthew and Ashlen's birthdays! I'm afraid Matthew's birthday will never be the same since Ashlen has taken over! This time he had to share his nice pink butterfly cake with her. It had a candle antenna for each of them. Ashlen just tried to grab the flame. Ashlen is showing off her frosting. She loved her cherry cake, and kept looking at me like she couldn't believe it was really for her! The four little goofballs She also just learned how to walk! She still mostly crawls, but can walk very well when it's convenient for her!
Here are the little 1 year old friends (and mommies and Krista) who came to the party-
Haddy, Levi, and Piper
It was a fun time. Ashlen was such a happy girl through the whole thing!

More Colorful Church Foyer

Our church foyer was recently redone, and I thought all you mover-awayers would like too see it. The main wall is a lovely green, with a beautiful cross made by Bud Schultz (I think). Mischa painted the words.
Here's where the bulletin boards used to be. Each of these frames has a missionary family's info on it, with their newsletters hanging down below. It looks really nice! The Pattisons made beautiful new trim around all the doors and floor. The old bulletin board is now in the sanctuary on the wall between the classrooms. It looks good there. What do you think of the changes? I also have plans to remodel the nursery. Hopefully that will happen soon!
