What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Birthday Bash

All in all, the Panda had a good day yesterday. Considering he had no clue WHY he was getting to eat yummy treats and open presents. He is just a roll with the punches kind of guy...and he did it with gusto! I tried to think of things that went along with Andrew's nickname...which became a theme. The party was just the four of us-and it was very nice.

For Appetizers we have...


Gummy bears, "Bamboo" crackers, and creatures of the forest-BUGS. These bug graham crackers are the CUTEST thing. Seriously! So perfect for summer!

We usually have a BIRTHDAY REQUEST dinner but since Andrew is too young (and shoves his face with ANY food!) I made...



Thai Stir Fry with bean sprouts and white rice. Kindof goes along the Panda theme if you think about where they live.

And for Dessert-you know it, A PANDA CAKE!

Check out the Fruit Roll Up 'Bamboo'
