Sarah turned 25 yesterday, March 1st.
We had a pretty good time just drinking coffee, lounging around, and driving to look at some real estate (we're seriously looking to buy, more on that later) with the kids. We went to dinner at a new sushi bar in our neighborhood called Sushi Tsunami. Probably some of the best sushi we've had - maybe ever - we ate raw octopus, squid, eel, and the like from the rotating bar of choices (yes, Aiden tried all of it too, he loves sushi).
Chloë and Aiden and I got her a few items she's been wanting and we picked out some flowers for her just to brighten the house (Aiden's idea). Aiden also took it upon himself to make her a special "birthday crown" to eat the awesome dark-chocolate cake she baked (yes, she wanted to bake her own cake on her own birthday)...you can see it all below.
Happy Birthday, my love. I can't wait to say it again at the half-century mark!
And just for good measure...a bonus Chloë pic!
Also, keep us in your prayers. On top of life's normal challenges for us, we're looking to buy a house. We've grown out of our two-bedroom+loft townhouse and would prefer to stop renting. We'd rather not have any kids' "rooms" in a loft, so we're looking for a 3-bedroom, 2-bath house in Vancouver and our budget is very limited (thus, so is our selection of houses that aren't total fixer/overhaul/crime properties!). We know that God is faithful and will provide when he sees fit for us, but a little prayer from our friends and family always seems to make things better!
