Victoria's Birthday, Ben leaving.

Here is Victoria wearing a birthday outfit from mom and Dad.
Thank-you Misty B. for the beautiful birthday bow!

Really enjoying your new toy, are'nt you Victoria?!

Opening presents with daddy.
We are so glad that we were able to have Victoria at home for her birthday this year.
Victoria's last birthday was spent in the hospital.

We had an open house for Victoria's birthday and for sending Benjamin off.
Thanks to all that came and helped us celebrate.

We went skating ,when we came home we found out that Mom had frosted this cake
Didn't she do a good job?!

Esther and Benjamin having a twirly hug.

Dad and Benjamin in front of the hotel in Fargo where we said good-bye to our soldier

The night before Ben left we played Phase Ten together.

Here is Rachel with the roses that Ben gave to all of his Girls. We love you Benjamin!!
Ben is not the only soldier in training. Everyone who is a Christian is a soldier in the King of Kings army.
We all need to be training to be the best soldier possible for Jesus.
"Have not I commanded thee? Be stong and of a good courage; be not afaid neither be thou dismayed:
for the Lord the God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." Joshua 1:9
May you all have a great day. Don't forget that we are in a battle!
