Mark's Birthday

 Yesterday was Mark's 36th birthday.  I met Mark when he was 26.  I have almost known him for 10 years! We had a really nice day.  I made Mark a big breakfast, one of his favorites. Spuds, eggs with bacon and hot sauce all over it.
 We did gifts in the morning when Mark's mom showed up.  She spent the day with us. 
 We got Mark some fancy canned coffee drinks, 3 new ties that Lulu picked out (thrift store finds), PJ bottoms, some new chili paste and hot sauces, 2 books (thrift store finds) and some of fun things. 
 Mark's mom and step dad are now up in Washington for a while.  They own a warehouse north of us about 45min and they are trying to get it rented.  So until it's rented they are now living in their motor home in the warehouse.  We are so excited about that because we get to see Mema so much more now.  I'm sure we will be going up to the warehouse soon and Papa Tony will hopefully get to meet Levi and Ila for the first time.  God's plans aren't always what we would choose but we know that there is a plan and a purpose.  Papa Tony (Mark's step dad) has never met Levi or Ila so having them this close hopefully will be a blessing and answer to prayer.  We are praying that God would move mountains in that relationship.
 Here is Levi doing the happy dance as Mark was opening his gifts.
 Lulu helped make this cake and she put in the candles too!  This cake is from the Duggar's website HERE. It was very yummy. 
Here is Mark with him mom, Connie. 
Happy 36th Birthday Mark!
 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Jeremiah 29:11
