Moriah's 9th Birthday

Despite having the beginnings of strep throat, Moriah had a good ninth birthday =)

She was up first and excited to see the birthday table!

 Birthday pancakes

 She was sweet and offered to open gifts on the couch so Keenan didn't have to get up

 A red panda bracelet from Caleb

 An owl necklace from Keenan

 A fun fox mug

 This "M" necklace is from Matt and Jessica

 Reading the fun card from Grandma

Bundled up because she had chills (and wearing her new slippers from Grandma W!)

 A fun craft kit from Grandpa and Grandma E

 She got to work on it right away!

 She was supposed to have a piano recital that afternoon, but didn't end up being well enough to go.   Instead, we were able to watch the live stream of a friend's wedding in Tennessee! =)

 It was a Beautiful December wedding!

We ordered in lunch from a new (to us) restaurant, thanks to a gift card from Jon!

Our friend, Wendy, stopped by and gave her a beautiful necklace (with real diamonds in it) that she no longer wears =)

These boots were from Philip and I

 We had an ice cream cake that we had intended to share at house church.   Since we couldn't go, we ended up taking half of it to our neighbors.

Happy, happy birthday, sweet girl!   You are Such a blessing to our family.  Your sweet spirit and kind, servant's heart teach us so much about Jesus.   We love watching you grow in the Lord and your dedication to reading your Bible is such a testimony!
