“When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.” ~ET Sullivan

Leah's Birthday Bash

Nov 28, 2008

Happy Third Birthday, Leah!

Ever since her Mom and Dad had birthdays in the summer, Leah has been asking if her birthday was ready yet. Well, it's finally ready! Here's Leah's Little Einsteins birthday party with Aunt Rebecca and Great-Grandma Benac.

Leah was very happy to have special visitors at her birthday party and was treated as a princess. We even let her have chocolate for lunch followed by several cupcakes.

Grandma Benac gave Leah a 25th anniversary Cabbage Patch Kid, who we named Belle (contrary to Sorenson family tradition, which would have dictated that the doll be named Leah CP. CP for Cabbage Patch).

Aunt Rebecca's present to Leah is a trip to the DuPage Children's museum, which we will go to when we are in Naperville at Christmastime.

And of course, what would a Little Einsteins party be without Leo, Quincy, Annie, June and a red Rocket? Leah is inseparable from her new Rocket, which plays music and responds to each character as they sit in their respective seats, and only takes about 5 minutes to get really annoying. She brings it with her in the bathroom, to bed, and even tried to bring it to church.

Here is the birthday girl with her special visitors:
