Feliz Cumpleaños, D.!

Today is D.'s much-anticipated 8th birthday! He got to go to church and out to lunch with Sarah and then we celebrated with him this afternoon. He's been requesting a Lego cake for MONTHS and although I did my best to make it look like Lego blocks, it wasn't quite up to his expectations. Maybe next year! He did have a great time celebrating with the other kids though and happily obliged when they started screaming at him to bite the cake! I think Tía Luz was the one who actually pushed his face into it! The kids insisted they were too full for dinner after cake, so cake combined with flan and soda made for a nice, healthy dinner... What can I say? You only turn 8 once!

*Side note... Casa de Amor is going through quite a bit of changes at the moment, and the kids are pretty upset about some things. While the birthday celebration was a nice break from everything, emotions started catching up with them toward the end of the night. There were lots of tears and talks. Please keep our big kids (everyone really, but especially them) in your prayers!
