Faith’s birthday & Canada Day
July 1st is not only Canada’s birthday but it is also Faith’s. And yesterday Faith turned 4 years old. I still can’t believe she is now school aged. She starts JK in September. Wow!
For both Faith’s birthday and Canada Day we had a celebration with lots of friends over, as well our court has a special celebration for Canada Day with fireworks at the end of the night. You’ll see in the pictures below all the people that came out for the Canada Day celebration. We even took a picture of all those who attended on top of the Canadian flag we painted on the “floor” of the court.
We parked one of our cars in our garage and the other in our neighbours driveway so we could set-up two tables for all our friends and family to eat around. The tables where dressed with everything yellow. That’s because Faith loves the colour yellow. It’s her favourite!
From the moment we got home De-Ann was in the kitchen cooking up a storm, ribs, shiskabobs, and special sauce where among the delicacies to eat. And each family also brought a side dish of some type. De-Ann made cupcakes and homemade icing for Faith’s birthday instead of a cake. What a great idea and they were delicious. You’ll even see Faith blowing out four candles on her very own cupcake with yellow icing, of course.
We chatted, ate and just a had a great time hanging out. So thankful to have our special friends celebrating with us. You all mean so very much to us. We love each one of you: DJ & Caitlyn, Drew, Diane, Denita, Joel & Rini, Rebecca & Tyler, Max & Elizabeth, Titus & Josiah and Andy & Nita. Each one of you are our extended family. And a special thank you to Linette (my sister) and Peter for stopping by. We had such a great time with all of you.
One other special guest showed up just after we finished supper, the Peel Fire Department. You’ll see the the pictures below we even got to take pictures of the kids in and around the fire truck. Faith even got to where the fireman’s helmet, so did Denita. haha.
July 1st weekend was also a very special weekend because it marked the anniversary of when Shawn first visited our home. Only a few days later Shawn joined our family permanently. Wow, it’s amazing what has happened in one short year. Praise God for his provision and care for our little family.
I hope you enjoy the pictures below.
