Nathaniel's Golden Birthday

Circumstances, sick people and two church services, kept us from doing much to celebrate Nathaniel's ninth birthday this weekend.  Not having time to cook or eat a meal yesterday we moved his birthday choices to Monday and let him choose the carryout between church services.  Panda Express orange chicken was his delight.  Which makes everyone happy, because it is a favorite all around the old Wachter world.
At church we sang "Happy Birthday" with the church family to Nathaniel and his very tall friend, Andrew, who shares the same birthday.
When we got home around 8:30 last night, we did have his birthday cake 
and open his VERY BIG present
Which was a wagon with a million parts.  He has been wanting a new one because the one the boys used to haul firewood lost a wheel.  Despite their efforts to fix it, they have been hauling wood by hand.  
I attempted to help the boys put it together today, but had to defer to Allen and Elisabeth's expertise in the end.
Happy 9th birthday on January 9th to our ever growing little man.  

"And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain."  2 Samuel 23:4

  4. dear Grins of Gold,

    We do "Golden birthdays" too here at Keoni Country. Your 9 year old is about 6 months younger than our youngest boy (Jax,but he won't have his gb until he is 27) They would have a grand time playing together I am sure. Great choice for a new wagon too. We use our heavy duty wagon for all kinds of stuff, and yes, hauling wood is one of them.
