Yesterday was Charis' 5th birthday! We are having a celebration next week with Malachi, but the day of her birthday included pink coffee cake and candles,
a giraffe named "Miriam" and a very excited little girl.
I took the older three out for a birthday lunch of her choice. Of all the fast food offered to her, she chose Sweet Tomato-a soup and salad buffet. My kids think buffets in America are the sole reason it's risen to superpowerdom.
Then we let her pick out a movie-Dispicable Me. We had a great time honoring our sweet girl. As usual, we went around the table at dinner and told her the things we love about her. Some of things were:
a joyful servant
generous with her things
concerned when others are sick and hurting
and so many others. We love you, Charis! You are a delight to our family and to others. Your smile brings joy to our day.
Happy Birthday! We Love you.
