Dorie's Birthday--QM

We have been without internet for a week now, and what a full week its been! We plan to do several short and picture-heavy posts this week to catch up.  This one is all about Dorie's 4th Birthday!

Dorie wanted a Tea Party with her two dear friends, Carmen and Thea, but she was going to be out of town on 08-08-12, so we celebrated a little bit early.
Here they are! Carmen, Dorie, and Thea
Instead of "pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey" we played "pin-the-handle-on-the teacup".
Don't you love the party favor? I wanted one!

Here is James on Dorie's 'real' birthday, opening a slinky from his Grandma Polly. We took the gifts with us to our orientation at Kota Kinabalu.

And here is Dorie doing her two favorite activities on her birthday--hanging out with other children and watching a movie!


  1. Loved the post! We are settling in to Jay and Betty's and miss you. Thanks for the pictures.

  2. Your world is so BIG! It blesses me to see Dorie and James playing with "all the little children of the world" (Bible School Song)
    Missed you on Skype this morning. Don't get to busy for your momma. Love you.

  3. Can't believe how your children are growing up. Our family is in Canada visiting Parla and Dave. A. Barbara
