Happy Birthday B-Dizzle! :O)


A little while back we had a little birthday celebration for our foster baby #2, "B-Dizzle" as I like to call him at home. :O) I found some awesome animal striped balloons (walmart) and pom poms (JoAnn's) and put them up in the kitchen area after church and had a little party with the church kids. I also made a zebra striped cake, which I was pretty proud of myself for. And ok, it came from a box (Duff Stuff cake mixes, fyi) but it was still impressive for me! I didn't ruin it! Oh, and in case you're wondering, (because lots of people did) the "365" on the cake was for 365 days. You know, a year=365 days...it made perfect sense to me! Haha. Baby "B" looked adorable in a little suit and bowtie that we found, I can't stop looking at the photos of him in it! Aren't babies in suits so precious?!

We aren't sure what the future holds for this little guy. It doesn't look like we'll be able to adopt him because of weird legal things (nothing bad, but I can't share for privacy reasons) but we are praying that he will be able to have a permanent home as soon as possible so that he doesn't remain in the foster care system for too long. Our prayer for every child, of course. But we wanted to make sure he had a first birthday party, because every kid should have one of those! And when he moves on from us someday, we can send pictures so that he'll know his special day was celebrated! :O)

Also, I think I've found a new recipe for birthday parties: balloons, pom poms, box cake. SO much easier than what I've been doing so far!  :o)

Have a great start to your week! My husband is out of town for the day with our car (we only have one) and I'm trying not to die. I'm neither a "stay at home" person, nor a "by myself" person. And definitely not a "stay at home by myself with three little kids" person. If things get bad enough I might be forced to vacuum or something. Pray for me. ;o)

Love you!

  3. The 365 made perfect sense to me, too. You are such a blessing to those two little guys. I'm sure that wherever B-Dizzle ends up, your love will follow him throughout his life. Every child needs a strong foundation to build their character upon and that is what you are providing for him. :-)

  5. As a mom who has adopted three kids, two of my children didn't come home at birth. It is heartbreaking when they ask to see pictures of their first Christmas, first birthday, or first baby pictures because I don't have anything to offer them. What you are doing is both good and beautiful. They will know that they have always been loved, always had a place, and have always been watched over. These pictures will be a blessing to them AND their new parents. Thanks.

    2. So true. I wasn't adopted and haven't adopted, but I know his forever family will totally appreciate the pictures that you have!

      Also, does this mean you are in the process of adopting Ace?

  6. I love the 365 on the cake. Cute idea. Simple birthdays are the best birthdays. Maybe make him a little scrapbook that can go with him when/if he transitions to a permanent home or to his caseworker for safekeeping. Wishing you the best as you take care of those little ones. You are doing an amazing job.

  7. Happy Birthday to the little darling, Disney. I thought for a moment that you had dyed your hair dark again but then realised the birthday photos were taken before your 'pink' phase. LOL!

  8. Is he really already 1 year old ? I hadn't realised that.
    And where have your pink hair gone ? It looked so good on you...

  11. Dear Disney, it is so special and lovely that you make these moments count. I heard today a girl from my 11yo son's class now has a fantastic foster placement, after a failure. She says "It's a year since Mum died and it is sad but I am happy". Bless you for making someone happy.
