It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.


Update on Pop/Last Friday Night

Hi everyone!
Well, the doctors successfully removed the blood clots in Pop's leg and (while still feeling sick from the surgery) he's on his way to recovery! Thank you so much for your prayers!! I know he really appreciated them and so did we...we found out later that there was a chance that he might have lost his left leg, so thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for your prayers!! :OD

It's been a li'l crazy around here for the past week, but I've been meaning to share pics from last Friday evening when our friend, Hannah, Elisabeth, and I planned and co-hosted along with Sis. Kynnette an "Out of School" party at Sis. Kynnette's house. I had a GREAT time and I'm sure that everyone else did too! Thanks a bunch, Sis. Kynnette and Bro. Earl!! Also, thanks Sis. Kynnette for taking most of the pictures...I'd planned on taking more but was having so much fun, I kinda forgot! lol So without further ado, here are some pics from the party:

The patriotic decorations...

And another view. :)

Mmmm...the delicious cake that Hannah and Elisabeth made!

Not sure what Elisabeth is doing in this pic! ")

I think that James and Ericka were ready to eat. :OD

The boys waiting to eat...


Playing a game (see my the back of my head peeping up?)

Ah, there I am! Along with John Benjamin, Wesley, and James! :)

What's this? Why, I do believe that James M. has an Aaron sprouting out of his arm! LOL

Well, that's all for now...hope everyone has a great day!! :)

I do believe that you forgot to mention JAMES AND AARON did the decorating..... My arm was sore for a week.

Erin said...

You're right...I did forget to mention who did the decorating...Hannah, Elisabeth, and I! LOL Oh yeah, and James and Aaron helped out a li'l, too. :D We must remember to enlist you two's help for the next party. We'll be sure to get a HUGE banner...think your arm can handle it? :)
