Olivia Turns Three!!

olivia-3bday-party - 35.jpgWhen we first moved into this house and met our landlady and her family, we knew immediately that it was a God-thing!! We immediately felt a connection with Chris and Mayuki, and fell in love with their baby who was only 9 months old at the time. We wanted to have a 1st birthday party for Olivia, so we did. And then we also had a 2 year party. And now it has become a fun and very important tradition for us!

Just this past Sunday, we threw a 3-Year-Old Teletubbies Party for Olivia!!! The (annoying) Teletubbies air occasionally here in Japan, so she knows all of the characters and really loves them. So Aunt Zomi had to throw her a theme party:) I quickly found out that they no longer sell Teletubbies party goods in any of the stores in the States. So I went to work looking on eBay and found some items, and placed my bids! I won some and lost some, but had enough stuff to have a decent party. I mailed them off to my friend in CA, who packaged them up and mailed them here. THANK YOU Mary:)

The Miyagawa family and Megumi joined us, too, so it was a FUN crowd!! Again, we felt so blessed to be surrounded by people that the Lord has allowed us to befriend. It's an honor beyond words. We LOOOOOVE them so much. Uncle Jeff prayed a blessing over Olivia...she was so sweet during that time. She had her eyes closed and her hands folded, sitting quietly. He prayed Jeremiah 29:11 over her: "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you, and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future."

Happy Birthday, Olivia! We love you, 3 year old big girl!!
