Deep in the Hundred Acre Woods....

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.” -Christopher Robin to Pooh Bear

Here to celebrate... Piglet, Birthday girl
, Tigger, Roo,

Pooh Bear, Rabbit, Kanga, Christopher Robin and his clone.

Today is the third birthday of our precious Rebekah and what fun was had by all! Being the biggest Pooh fan of all time we took the theme and ran with it. It was so much fun to see her face light up when she realized that all her favorite Pooh characters had come for cake and ice cream.

Being that she is the baby girl one might think that she would be a princess and spoiled. But she is not that. Rebekah is independent, fearless, energetic and full of ideas of her own. It's been a rewarding year as we've seen her respond to training and discipline as well as develop more personality and role in our family.

Her phrase of this past year had been, "Me, too!" No matter what someone else says this is her response loud and clear.

"Mom, can I go outside and play?" "Me, too?"

"My favorite color is purple." "Me, too!"

"I'm eleven." "Me, too."

"My stomach hurts." "Me, too."

Sweet Rebekah, Happy Birthday!!

Cupcake Towers with our favorite toys are fun and easy to make!

We played "Put the honey pot in Pooh's hands"

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and especially for the prayers. I appreciate every single prayer that goes up on behalf of these women, as well as appreciating those that are sending them up for us!

Have a blessed weekend!

What an adorable idea for a party! I may have to keep that in mind for my nephew Goober's birthday one year -- he just loves Winnie the Pooh. :)

What a fun party, not to mention a really pretty cake! Izzi would love to have a Pooh party. She told mme the other day that she doesn't know why, but Pooh is still her favorite. (Even more than Barbie.)

Hey! I meant to tell you that I used Goya brand lentils...just plain ones. :) I think you could use any kind though. Great seeing you tonight!
