Last night's devotion with little honey was from Genesis 26:12-22 "Isaac Gives Up His Wells".

As I was reading the devotion, little honey didn't understand what a well was. I explained to him that it is where they used to get water from and they had to dig deep holes in the ground and use a bucket to bring up the water. That they didn't have sinks and faucets like we do in the bathroom and kitchen to get the water easier.
He nodded like he understood.
As I was finishing the lesson little honey's face light up. Like he finally got it.
"Oh, you mean like a wishing well, where you throw your money in and make a wish!" he said.
"Well yes, like a wishing well - except they didn't throw money in back then - they needed to get water," I said.
He then proceeded to tell me what he would wish for if he saw a wishing well ~
"I would wish for a yellow light saber, cuz I can't wait til Christmas."
"Wouldn't you wish for babies if you had the chance?" I asked - since he really wants to be a big brother.
"No," he said, "I will pray for babies and just wait. But wish for the light saber."
Well - at least he knows what to Wish for and what to Pray for.
So we were finally able to have Little Honey's Birthday party this weekend. Since he had been sick the day of the scheduled party. At the time I was going to make cupcakes - the usual - but had an idea from our last visit to Krispy Kreme. (Yes we frequent there quite often for treats! And he had an exceptional day at the eye doctor - which is another post - and deserved a treat!)
After searching online for ideas I finally came up with this ~
What do you think? I used regular size glazed for the bottom two layers, and mini glazed and sprinkled for the other layers. Did I mention that sprinkled is my FAVORITE!!! Oh and little honey likes them too! HeeHee! Icing from a can is what is at the top middle to hold up his candle.
Aww, Mom, don't take my picture!! Trying to be shy...of course this stopped as soon as he got his presents!!
We had his party at the local movie theater and watched Yogi Bear. I was a little worried about 8 kids in a movie theater - but the kids were actually better than some adults in the theater - go figure!
