We had a great long weekend down in San Antonio for Labor Day. The weather was amazing...I had forgotten what 70's feel like!
However, the nice weather couldn't prevent the massive fires burning just east of Austin from blazing away...we saw the billowing smoke from the highway while driving back...lots of prayers needed for the folks in the path of the fires. So far, it has burned close to 30,000 acres and over 500 homes have been destroyed. My heart just breaks for those that are left with nothing but ashes...
We are busily planning Liam's 2nd birthday set for the end of the month. We have a cake ordered from a wonderful ministry called Icing Smiles. They provide cakes for birthdays and special occasions for children or siblings affected by chronic illness. We are so blessed to have programs like this...Cakes Amore in Plano is working with Icing Smiles to create our cake! So very blessed...especially since this will be the first year Liam can EAT cake! YAY!
