Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

a celebration of life

Yesterday was our daughter's 24th birthday. We celebrated Saturday night with dinner and presents!!
She requested Taco Salad
and German Chocolate Cream Pie.
I like it when they ask for something easy! :-)

She loves flowers so I picked up a bunch. They didn't look Mexican (ha! ha!), but they were pretty and she liked them. That's what mattered most!

I used my mother's glasses. I don't use them often,
but I wanted her to feel special! :-)

We ate until we were full, waited an hour and then had our pie for dessert......
and ate until we were full again!! :-)

Here's our sweet girl just before we ate. It was a happy time
and I think she enjoyed her dinner and her presents.
She really wanted to open them first,
but we made her wait! :-)
The card we gave her said...
"You have been a gift from God since the day you were born!"
....and that is the truth!

We were also celebrating something else......in October, she and her husband are going to make us grandparents again!!
They are very happy and, of course, so are we!
We have known for a few weeks but she wanted to wait until
after her first doctor's appointment last week to tell others.
So, now I am free to tell all of you!!!
We are rejoicing in God's blessings on us!

Can't wait to hold my baby's baby! :-)

  5. Congratulations on the wonderful news! You had a very nice table scape. I love Mexican food! I have never had a German Chocolate Cream Pie, but that sounds nice as well! It seems we only have pies at Thanksgiving time. We may have an occasional blueberry pie in the summer. Note to self make more pies!
