Elijah Mueller Turns FOUR!

 Our littlest treasure {so far} turned FOUR today.

The little guy whose smile melts this mama's heart.  





Rather shy and quiet, let me just say, this guy knows how to pray.  He is concerned for those around him and prays with passion.  We know that the man Elijah {in scripture} was "a man who prayed earnestly"....we pray this over our son also....that he will be a prophetic voice, who prays earnestly...

My sweet prophetic promise whispered from the Lord through the song on my playlist "Days of Elijah" {long before Dw found him}...

 If you haven't read "Our Wild Adventure" parts 1-6 of how Elijah and Elizabeth came home...slide over to the sidebar and read it...you will be reminded of how God loves the orphan and how His surprises are always the very, very, very best...



 Oh Elijah Mueller, you have brought mommy and 
daddy so much joy...how we love you precious son...



Traditional breakfast in bed...
whole grain pancakes with real NY maple syrup...
with a side of fruit...

Our mini Spiderman or not - he still loves his daddy to tickle him...


Another princess attended the party...


 Big Brother Spiderman
 There were glamorous princesses celebrating too...
{the kind mini and big Spiderman needs to 
rescue from time to time}


And closing the party out {just minutes ago} with our 
{famous-haha
homemade ice cream cake...


If anyone out there wants to wish our mini-Spiderman 
a happy birthday, 
I'm sure he'd be tickled to pieces!!

74 Simply Sweet Words:

  1. Happy, HAPPY Birthday, Elijah! I'm so glad God made YOU!
