This week has been full of parties. ; )
Yesterday after Bible study everyone came to my house for lunch. We do this once a month and rotate houses. I'm glad I hosted the Christmas lunch because it motivated me to decorate a little. We wanted to put up a tree for Zach, too. Twelve women and thirteen kids...it was a wild time. We do hire babysitters though, so that is nice. I'm thankful it was a beautiful day so the kids were able to play outside, too.
A quiet moment for all the kids (sorry for the glare, I had to be quick!)
This morning Z and I went to a Happy Birthday, Jesus party at church. It was fun to watch everything they did for the kids. Z loved it. He kept himself occupied by saying, "Balloon balloon," pulling suckers out of everyone's goody bags, and dumping out a bin of little cars. ; ) Never a dull moment!
Zach & Norah eating their cupcakes.
Zach also loves suckers these days. I think he has his third one of the morning in his mouth. Just kidding! He was precious, and it's good for my heart to be around friends even when I don't feel like myself.
Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
