Today we give thanks for Peregrine, remembering the twelve years we have traveled this earth with him. I always enjoy looking through photos of the kids through the years and thought it would be fun to gather up pictures from all of his birthdays.
|I labored long and hard to bring this little one to the light. His birth was agonizing and beautiful. We were so thankful for the gift of him!|
This was his "Patuanan"... that was how he said Happy Birthday at the time he turned two.
We had just moved to an new house. He was a knight, there was a baby sister by this time, and he had Thomas the Tank Engine on his cake.
He was an astronaut and Poppy was a star princess. We had a moon piñata.
A brave knight ready to defend his sister.
By this time, Raphael had been born, and apparently it was the end of elaborate, handmade costumes! A simple knight cape did the trick!
A police detective, two outlaws on the run, and a fairy, of course. Because every police detective should have the assistance of a fairy.
|Eight.... aaaaargh, matey!|
The legendary Pie-rate party, complete with pie contest, in which he took control of the entire party and showed that he had what it takes to diplomatically command an audience. It was remarkable.
Some sort of soldier this year... thrift store costume that he was thrilled with!
