Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

My baby is 3!!

I can't believe that Melia is 3.  Yesterday we celebrated her birthday 
and we had a blast.  

We started our day with a party. 
One of the coolest parts about having a huge family is 
impromptu parties.  All of this kids are home schooled  
so it worked to have a weekday party.  

Eating pizza bagels :) 

Elli and Silas

Silas is the newest addition to our Deslippe clan.  
Isn't he cute?!

Micah and Melia-- the Ethiopian cousins.

She was so cute and turned shy when we sang to her. 
Addie's pretty cute in the background, too. She was
so excited for Melia's special day.

Goofy girl!  I'm not sure what this was about. 

After the short party we went a pottery painting place.
Everyone picked their piece and went to work. 

Caleb hard at work.

Lots of paint.  The girls painted and painted and painted.

True to Nathan form, he was very meticulous with his work.
He chose to make Melia a 'M' for her birthday.
He's so sweet and painted it her favorite colors. 

Yay!  Ethiopian food!  Let's party.

My girl loves shiro and injera!

After dinner she enjoyed a game of guess who.

We are so blessed by Melia.  Even though I can't believe she's 3 and I wish that I could keep her as a baby forever, I'm more excited to watch her grow and into her cute, spunky self!  Thank you, Jesus, for blessing our family so much.
