Birthday Parties, Baby Showers and Stitches...

What do these three things have in common? They're all part of a typical day in the Clark household!

Yesterday was Naomi's 2nd birthday. We celebrated yesterday after church with cake and ice cream. Papa Joe was able to come, and Grandma Shirley came a little later in the afternoon, but Papa Ken wasn't feeling well and stayed home. Naomi had a pink cake with flowers and candles. She did a good job blowing them out. She enjoyed opening her gifts and playing with them. She wasn't sure about all of the hoopla at first, but by the end of the day she was liking the attention!

Our church hosted a baby shower in honor of Hudson after the evening service. We enjoyed snacks and fellowship while opening gifts. Hudson was awake quite a bit of the time, and was passed around and snuggled by a bunch of the church members. It had been several years since we had been given a baby shower, so it was quite a blessing!

Upon returning from church, Colton and Katie were running around the dining room playing, and Colton tripped over Katie, fell, and smacked his face on the door to the basement. His eyebrow split open, requiring stitches. We got the girls in bed, settled everyone else in, and headed to the ER. Colton was a VERY brave boy, and didn't shed a single tear the entire time we were there. He left with five stitches and five stickers...a fair trade in his estimation! He's quite a sight now, as he has stitches on the right eyebrow, and a big scab and shiner on his left eye from earlier in the week. How many times a week do I say, "No running in the house!"?

"The wise in heart will receive commands, but a prating fool will fall." Proverbs 10:8
