Took Time to Celebrate

In the Robinson family, May is Birthday Time.  Both President and Sister Robinson have Birthdays and only a week apart, so here are the pictures from the celebrations in the Mission.  Thanks Elders and Sisters!  We feel loved as we grow older!

Thank You Rotterdam Zone for the Cheese Cake!

A rousing 'Nederlands Jarig Lied' from the Rotterdam Zone!

There is nothing to compare to the Dutch Birthday Song--Really, I don't think we will ever go back to just "Happy Birthday to you!"

White Chocolate for Everyone--along with cake and cupcakes!
We love the missionaries--they make everything fun!  Thanks for the gifts and flowers!

Elder Suckow, Elder Giles, Elder Burgess

YES!! They were are delicious as they were beautiful!

Many, many thanks for your efforts to help us turn another year older and wiser too!

 And that was that---almost all gone!

 And President approves!

Well, then we returned from our weekend on Sunday night to find this!!!

Both President and I enjoyed 'digging' through the balloons to find the bed, and later enjoyed popping each one to find a great little note and reminder of love, support and happiness.  Do you missionaries know how great you all are?  We love you.  You make this time in our lives a wonderful adventure.  We just never know what is next in our lives.  We are looking forward to the next year with you.  Thank you for your fun, but we humbly thank you for your example, your testimonies of the restored gospel, your commitment to the Savior and our Heavenly Father, and your love for us, the people of Belgium and Netherlands, and the Lord.  You are the reason we are here.
