Oh, what fun!
First, "Sis-Sis" made him these to share with friends at our Friday night Bible study:
And then, a friend of mine posted this idea to Facebook yesterday, so he had a special, surprise, "Birthday Eve Bath."
First, I ran a nice deep bubble bath, then I activated four glow-necklaces and put them in the water. Then I turned off the lights and shut the door. I called the three littles for their surprise bath, and when I opened the door, they saw a bath that looked like this (this is my friend's photo--I didn't take one without the kids):
Oh yeah! It was the BOMB!
Getting Mikko OUT of the tub was a different story. I've never had a problem before, but tonight, after I lifted him out, he screeched and dove head-first back into the water. It was too much fun!
But, eventually, I got him out, and dried off, and into his new rocket ship birthday PJs ("Cool!" "Pretty!" he said), and he had a glow necklace to play with!
"Sis-Sis" and Big Brother Aram are going to be busy setting up the living room after he goes to bed tonight so that he wakes up to surprises--presents, balloons and streamers!
God bless our little Mikko. I pray that God give him a huge measure of faith, and that he is blessed with wisdom, and grows to love Jesus with all his heart, mind, and strength.
