We had a quiet birthday on the 11th. I did ask her
if we could have a small party for her. She gave the thumbs up.
So this Saturday I made her favorite meal so far "Spaghetti" and we had
family and a couple of friends over. She was still very shy. So her big
brother Chris stuck by her side again. We were able to get her to open
her presents with a couple of us in the room.
After awhile everyone slowly came in and joined us.
I was trying to explain and show her the sign for love. Later she
wanted to put her Willow Angel with some of mine and I showed
her a wonderful spot on her desk for hers.
My friend also made her some beautifully decorated cards with
scriptures in simplified Chinese and English. She laminated them
and put them on a ring so she can flip threw and read them all.
She is looking at Charlotte (who made them) and smiling because
the very first one says.....................................
He Delights In You With Singing.
Then she put the scripture from
We are still pretty much translator-dependant around here.
So she couldn't understand what I was trying to share
with her about journaling.
She loved mine and basically kidnapped it. What I love is.......
that she likes my Christian music that I have on it.
Hey! I want one of these 5th generation Nano ipods!
Our quiet celebration, earlier in the week. I asked Sarah what kind of cake she likes and
she told me,"pineapple." So after finding some pictures I figured out she
wanted a pineapple upside down cake. We also had Chinese take out!
I found out in China she would get a rose for her birthday.
So daddy picked up EIGHTEEN roses for her and put them in her room!
When we came home from getting her new bling in her ears she
went in her room and yelled, "Mom!" with a very excited voice
and grabbed my hand pulling me into her room to show me.
HAPPY 14TH BIRTHDAY TO OUR SWEET SARAH!
