A Birthday Sleepover

My baby girl is turning 11. We celebrated this weekend with a few of her friends. All I can say is God is good! These precious girls are a gift from the Lord.
Dale made his infamous "hot fudge squares" for all of us to enjoy. Princess EB wanted each girl to have a candle to blow out (instead of her having all 11). I'm happy to report that no candles were left burning. According to the girls, no boyfriends - whew, since she can't even THINK about dating until she's 16:)

Thank you, Jesus, for this long-awaited for daughter! She is tender, thoughtful, compassionate and a gracious giver. She melted my heart when she presented me with some of her Birthday money today and said, "Here is my tithe. Please give it to the orphan fund, Mom." She hasn't even had time to think about what she wants to get with her money for herself and she is already thinking of others. What more could a parent want?!

Mother's Day

My eldest daughter surprised me this morning with breakfast in bed. She made me a toaster streudel with "I Love U" written on it, an orange (already peeled) and bananas sliced up. My drink was ice water, but no ordinary ice water. The ice cubes had real purple flowers frozen into them!

I love my kiddos! Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms!
