Joy Death Life At Christmas

Joy.  Death.  Life.  At Christmas. Joy

This week we will be joining with extended family to celebrate the life of a kind, funny, Jesus loving uncle, father, grandfather.  The sharing of this video is so timely for me, so maybe for you too?

Please take a brief 5 minutes and reflect with me on Joy.

Happy 12th Birthday!

Twelve years ago this week, this bundle of sweetness and spice entered our lives.IMG_4439  What a surprise and what a delight is she!  We celebrated this past weekend with a very small group of friends (remodel projects continue in this house, limiting space) and then out to breakfast on the actual day with an older sister and a little niece.

A little fun was to be had with treats  She made these raspberry bites for her birthday party, we made  these cupcakes for classroom treats.

My babies are really growing up.  This sweet girl wraps up elementary in the spring and heads into the youth group this summer.  Growing. Up.
