Party Party Party

Morgan wanted to have a party this year for her birthday... I believe I have mentioned quite a few times how I hate throwing parties:) However, Morgan was 10 years old the last time she had a party and since this is her first year in high school, a party is what she got!

In normal Morgan style she designed her own party invitations and cake:) Morgan designed the cake and I took it to a local bakery and had them make it. It turned out just the way she wanted.

Morgan's theme was "Vineyard Vine" (a clothing store that's popular with the teens). We rented an outdoor movie screen and they had a movie night. It turned out pretty great. We had 18 girls in our back yard...but I survived:)

The menu was Chick-fil-A of course:)

And then when it got dark and we started the movie I set up a 
"candy bar" with popcorn and all the movie essentials.

I didn't get a good picture of the candy bar because when I brought out all that candy I was literally attacked by all the girls grabbing their favorite candy.

It was a beautiful night and the big ole' hug, kiss, and "thank you" I got made it all worth it! 

Happy Birthday Morgan!!!

Easter weekend

We had a nice Easter weekend Filled with family time, church, and Lee Strobel.

This year our church brought in Lee Strobel to speak at all 5 of our services and they were all GREAT. I went to three of the five and enjoyed all of them. we had over 3,700 worship with us over Easter weekend...even our over flow was packed!!

David and I were able to have dinner with Lee on Friday night and I will admit I was very nervous, But he was such a humble and gracious man.

If you haven't read his newest book "Case for Grace" you should get it. He gave us a copy and I am reading it now and It is very good.

Sunday afternoon we had the usual Egg hunt.

I was a little sad that Morgan didn't want to find eggs this year:(

I hope you all had a relaxing weekend worshipping our Lord and being thankful that the tomb is EMPTY!
